Muotka Wilderness Hotel

Muotka Wilderness Hotel


This charming wilderness lodge, is located in the heart of Finnish Lapland amidst the Saariselka fells and Urho Kekkonen National Park. Offering hotel rooms, apartment style accommodation, Aurora Cabins, Superior rooms with sauna  and Log Cabins – the lodge is ideal for couples, families and friends travelling together.

Muotka boasts a cosy lounge area where tea and coffee are served throughout the day, and a cosy, open plan restaurant comes complete with log fire. Your stay is based on full board, although additional snacks and drinks (including alcoholic) can be purchased. The sauna is heated daily and has allocated times for male and female guests. Alternatively, you can book a private sauna outside these times at an additional cost of around €20 per 1 hour (payable locally). There is also a large traditional smoke sauna on site which is available to use twice a week (there is an additional charge to have these saunas heated). There is also an outdoor fireplace, lean-to and a Sami hut. Or, for those who are so inclined, head down to the nearby river for an Arctic plunge through the ‘hole in the ice’.

There are a range of activities included in your stay here, such as a snowmobile safari to a reindeer farm or onto the fells, hunting for the northern lights, a husky sled journey, snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
