About the trip

Our Finland adventure to the snowy outback may be short, but it’s packed to the brim with bucket-list hits.

Rev full throttle on a fleet of snowmobiles, as you safari by twilight beneath the dancing Northern Lights. Join us as we yowl with the huskies and sled through the trees, in a blur of dazzling white beauty. Gear up for a lesson in cross-country skiing and glide free across the wintry horizon. Grab a dash of childhood wonder with a reindeer sleigh ride in a Narnia-style forest, before meeting the herders over a fireside lunch in a traditional Lappish kota.

This is your chance to drink in the pure Arctic Circle air and the clearest skies in Europe, as you conquer the elements with a host of fresh experiences. Whether you’re basking in a lakeside sauna, toasting fireside marshmallows or gazing up at the flashing green sky,  this trip will take your icy breath away.

Itinerary

Day 1

Goodbye city heights, hello Northern Lights

Land in Kittilä airport by 5pm, where a transfer will whisk you to the Northern Lights of Torassieppi. Your home for the next few days is nestled on the edge of Lake Torassieppi, with dramatic views of the Pallas-Ylläs National Park. Boasting zero light pollution and the cleanest air in Europe, the location is quite spectacular and a million miles off the hustle of city life. Just to sweeten the deal, there are two lakeside saunas for you to wallow in, and the rustic restaurant comes with a roaring log fire. At 6pm, you’ll meet your guide and fellow Flashpackers for a delicious homemade dinner. Tuck into organic dishes prepared by local chefs, and cheers to the adventure ahead. As the night draws in, we’ll gather around a crackling campfire with hot drinks and marshmallows to toast. Keep your eyes peeled on the horizon to see if the ethereal Northern Lights work their magic…

Day 2

Husky safaris and cross-country skiing

After a hearty breakfast, we’ll explore the pristine snow-laden landscape with a cross-country skiing session. After a quick lesson, you’re free to test your newfound skills on a scenic route of well-maintained tracks. Then, we’ll replenish ourselves with a warming lunch by the roaring fire of a traditional Lappish kota. Be sure to fuel up, then get set for some serious cuteness this morning as we visit a husky farm, where there may even be some husky puppies to cuddle if you’re lucky. We’ll then get to see these lovely Siberian dogs in action on a dazzling nine-kilometre husky safari. A highlight of the trip for many of our Flashpackers, enjoy slicing through the trees pulled by dashing huskies as you steer them through the magical landscape. Come evening, another sumptuous dinner beckons before we head out into our winter playground on a fleet of snowmobiles. Rev up your engine and blaze across the endless white tundra by night, in search of those dazzling Northern Lights.

Day 3

Reindeer rides and a soothing spa

After breakfast, we’ll help you realise a childhood fantasy just a few minutes down the road, at the local reindeer farm. Jump aboard for a magical reindeer sled ride amid snow-clad pine trees and a vast snowy horizon. Afterwards, you’ll be able to chat to the herders about their lives and explore a Lappish manor house. We’ll then head to the restaurant for a hearty lunch. Feeling full and relaxed, we’ll then kick back at an arctic spa where you can unwind amid the steamy warmth of a traditional Finnish sauna. Feeling brave? Go from one extreme to another, with a bracing ice swim. We’ll then gather for a farewell dinner. Feast upon hearty Finnish dishes in the warm glow of the restaurant, savouring your last night of cosy escapism.

Note: To squeeze every last minute out of those glorious Northern Lights, we offer the option of upgrading to an Aurora Dome* on your last night, where you can sleep beneath the greenish Arctic skies with a glass of Prosecco in hand. These are chalet-style pods that keep in all the heat, while offering a front-row seat to the skies. You have comfy beds, a wood-burning stove, and spectacular views of the frozen Lake Torassieppi. Speak to our team to find out more.

Day 4

Farewell, Finnish snowscape

After breakfast, it’s time to bid farewell to this enchanting land of snow and breathe in your last few lung-fulls of the cleanest air in Europe. Your transfer awaits to take you to the airport, where you can fly home warmed by the thrills of your immersive Finnish escape. You’ve conquered an icy wilderness on a convoy of huskies, and blazed across the horizon on a snowmobile safari beneath the Northern Lights. You’ve mastered the art of cross-country skiing and practised your skills on the vast snowy landscape. You’ve jumped aboard a reindeer ride and had lunch by the firelight of a Lappish kota. You’ve dined on hearty Finnish cuisine and got your chill on in steamy lakeside saunas. All this, with a magical wintry horizon and like-minded solo travellers thrown into the mix. We wouldn’t blame you if you grabbed one of your newfound husky pals and sledded off into the horizon forever more…
