The autumn season in Lapland brings vibrant, colourful landscapes and a guided nature walk is the perfect introduction. Wildlife is more active at this time of year, so you may be lucky enough to spot reindeer and various species of bird. Your guide will also point out edible berries which are in season and give you an insight into the forest’s flora. In November, you may witness the first snow of winter and in this case, you may swap your hiking boots for snowshoes.
Muotka itself is close to Inari which is the heart of Sámi culture. A visit to the Siida Museum offers an engaging insight into this ancient indigenous culture and how the local people have adapted to the changeable seasons north of the Arctic Circle. A Northern Lights photography presentation set to music is also played throughout the day.
In short, autumn is both colourful and peaceful as you are travelling ahead of the winter crowds. Some of the best Northern Lights displays can be witnessed at this time of year and the scenery is spectacular.
