-- It’s based at Muotkan Maja, a new wilderness lodge located just 15 minutes south of Saariselka in remote Finnish Lapland. While Saariselka is a small-but-lively ski resort, Muotka is located in a pristine winter wonderland, all thick, snow-covered forest and fells buried in powder, with the added charm of local reindeer which will often wander down to meet and greet new visitors. The area’s lack of artificial light pollution equates to a very high chance of seeing the Northern Lights, too.
The Aurora Zone’s four-night trip to Muotka includes nightly searches for the Lights – one using snowshoes, and two stake-outs in specially-created Aurora Camps with warm fires – and some wonderful daytime activities, such as a snowmobile trip (after a driving lesson) to a reindeer farm, cross-country skiing and a 10km-long husky safari.
Departing 20 February and 6 & 20 March, ‘Muotka Fellside Aurora’ costs £1,545 pp (two sharing) including flights (London), transfers, four nights’ full-board accommodation, activities and winter clothing. Call The Aurora Zone on 01670 785012 (http://www.theaurorazone.com
