Family Northern Lights Break: log cabin Muotka

Family Northern Lights Break: log cabin Muotka

 Cozy and comfortable log cabin with full-pension in the northernmost Lapland. Each day a new family friendly activity. Enjoy winter like never before. 

Aurora Borelis  is a natural phenomenon with the highest propability to occur in September-October and again in February-March. The northern part of Lapland belongs to the auroral zone. You can see auroras there throughout the winter on three out of four nights, even though you cannot see them if the weather is cloudy. You need a clear and dark night. The best time of the day is plus minus 2 hours from the midnight.

Muotka Wilderness Lodge  has a long tradition in serving cross-country skiers. You will arrive in this charming hotel after a sightseeing in Inari and Saariselkä area by car. The fell hotel is located next to the Urho Kekkonen National Park by the road leading to the Kiilopää fell center. It is an ideal place for independent, shorter fell skiing trips, even for inexperienced cross-country skiers as there are marked ski-tracks leaving from the yard and leading to the Saariselkä fell line. The hotel also offers both 2h cross-country skiing and snowshoeing tours. If you are interested to take these one by one parent, I am sure it can be arranged.

The lodge is built by a river on taiga.  You will stay four nights in a panorama log cabin with a huge windown facing the northern sky. With small children this is the most practical solution as you do not need to get anywhere to be able to see the northern lights.

Family friendly activities included in the package:

Reindeer farm visit by car (2h)  takes you to a local reindeer farm, where you will have a reindeer sleigh ride of max 50 minutes. Reindeers run slowly and you will sit warmly covered so this activity suits even to the smallest ones.  

Husky farm visit and a short safari (1h)  takes you to see a farm with over 130 huskies and have a short enough sledge-dog ride ride as it can be very cold in January.  

Angry Birds Activity Park   offers a lot of indoor games and plays for children and their parents. It is open from 12-19.00 and located in connection to a family spa in Saariselkä sports village so you can spend the whole afternoon there with your children. Weather does not play any role on this day. 

Toboggan you can borrow free of charge.
