Beautiful place to see the auroras. Igloos were clean but could use some design changes when accomodating 2 singles. Two luggage stands would be nice, instead of 1 and hooks to hang coats would have been great. We used our tripods. We noticed some igloos had hooks inside the door but ours didn't. It took us a couple days to figure out how to organize comfortably (two single females traveling together). Staff was very friendly, except for my last day with housekeeping. They made up my room for the next guest while I was at breakfast and when I came back they were still there. She was confrontational about me reporting a missing item and wouldn't leave the room as it was already cleaned but I had paid for the room until 11am. I told her to leave and she was not happy. My missing item had been returned and I was not unhappy with the service but I was unhappy with the confrontation on the day I was leaving. Overall the food was wonderful, the lodge staff were helpful and friendly, the guides were amazing, and the activities were unforgetable.

Amazing place! We will definitely return!
Wilderness Hotel Muotka was amazing! We stayed in Aurora cabin 304 for 4 spectacular nights. The hotel is clean, efficient and the staff is great! Seeing the northern lights from bed is something we’ll never forget! If you’re considering a trip to Lapland, this is where you should stay!

Amazing stay with friendly staff.
We had an amazing stay. The hotel provides cold weather clothing free of charge to use during your stay which is very helpful (boots, gloves, snowsuit, helmet, etc.) There is free WIFI, but only available in the lodge. Our only feedback was that it was very difficult to manage the temp in our cabin and we got very hot. There are no additional bedding items in the room, only a heavy comforter and a small blanket. Overall we had an amazing stay and got to see the Northern Lights twice despite some cloudy days. Thanks to the lovely staff who were so friendly and went out of their way to accommodate any request!
