Muotka Wilderness Lodge lies way out in the depths of Finnish Lapland, a rustic hideaway in spectacular snowy woodland, with fifteen rooms, two saunas and one huge open fireplace to while away warm evenings after snowy days spent outdoors. With three full days to explore, and a host of included adventures, this tailor-made break takes in the very best of the lodge's Arctic surrounds. You'll also enjoy full-board dining based on the region's freshest, seasonal ingredients.
