Travel high above the Arctic Circle to the family-friendly Muotka, a frozen playground filled with exceptional snow-based activities. This 4-night winter break is unforgettable in its own right, but pair it with new year celebrations and you have the opportunity to create some cherished family memories.

We’ve included some of the must-do winter activities to explore the pristine surroundings. From dog sledding through the wilderness to enjoying a magical reindeer sleigh ride, you’ll get the full Lapland experience. You’ll also take a walk over the deep, soft powdery snow with ease during a snowshoe tour to see the local flora and fauna.

As darkness falls, your adventure continues with a visit to a nearby Aurora camp. Here, with your local expert guide, you’ll search the skies in hopes for a display of dazzling green lights. What’s more, you’ll receive an Aurora alert system to use for the duration of your stay, to help you tick this brilliant phenomenon off your family bucket list.

With a winter wonderland setting, snow-based activities for the whole family and the chance to see the Northern Lights, Muotka offers an unforgettable way to welcome in the new year.

Special Nights

Sleep in an Aurora Kota

From: £115pp

Muotka is renowned as an Aurora viewing destination and so the hotel has created a selection of Aurora Kotas for guests to enjoy.

These part-cabin and part-glass tepee buildings are self-contained and situated a short distance from the hotel. The idea is that you can hopefully watch the Northern Lights from the comfort of the bed. 

The Kotas are all 25m² with their own private sauna, double bed and en-suite bathroom.  There is also room for two extra beds for children.

Please note: prices are based on you spending the first or last night of your holiday in this unique accommodation and not keeping your original accommodation. If you would like to do this on any other night during your holiday you will need to keep your accommodation and supplements will apply. Please contact our Travel Experts for a quotation.
