Itinerary

Your Itinerary

  • Day 01 Hello, Northern Lights

    Card image

    Land in Kittilä airport by 5pm, where a transfer will take you to your new home on the edge of Lake Torassieppi. Boasting zero light pollution and dramatic views over Pallas-Ylläs National Park, the location is quite spectacular. As evening falls, meet your fellow travellers and guide over an organic homemade dinner at the lodge – with a crackling campfire and hot drinks to see you through the night.

  • Day 02 Reindeer rides and a shaman visit

    Card image

    Embrace a touch of magic this morning, as you jump aboard a reindeer sleigh ride, weaving through snow-laden pine forests towards the horizon. Lunch today will be a cosy affair, gathered around a fire in a traditional Lappish kota alongside local reindeer herders. The rest of the afternoon is yours to sink into the warmth of a traditional Finnish sauna (feeling brave? Follow up your sauna session with an ice cold swim). Enjoy dinner at the lodge, then your magical evening will culminate with a visit to a local shaman. Gathered around a fire, you’ll learn about the local folklore surrounding gnomes, nature and the Northern Lights.

  • Day 03 Husky safaris and cross-country skiing

    Card image

    This morning’s adventure? After paying a visit to a local husky farm (puppies included), you’ll glide across the icy tundra on a nine-kilometre husky ride. Refuel on lunch at a nearby restaurant, then your outdoor adventure continues with a snowmobile safari, followed by some cross-country skiing. After a quick lesson, test your newfound skills on a scenic (well-maintained) route, before gathering for your final dinner together.

    *To savour your final evening beneath the Northern Lights, you can opt for an upgrade to an Aurora Dome. These unique pods allow you to fall asleep to uninterrupted views of the Arctic skies, with comfortable bedding, a wood-burning stove and spectacular views over Lake Torassieppi. Please contact our Sales Team to find out more.

  • Day 04 Farewell, Finland

    Card image

    Enjoy a final breakfast at your lodge, before catching a transfer to the airport. Interested in an extended Scandi escape? Take a peek at our Norway itinerary.

Our Favourite Hotels

Browse a selection of our favourite hotels, for a flavour of where you may stay on this trip.

Card image

Torassieppi Village, Muonio

Cosy cabin village in Pallas-Ylläs National Park

Bed down in peaceful wooden chalets (complete with log burners) on the shores of Lake Torassieppi.

Why we stay here

This 19th-century farm complex is spectacularly located amid snow-clad fir trees and the frozen lake. We love the toasty saunas, and the restaurant’s roaring log fire.

Card image

Aurora Domes, Lake Torassieppi (optional upgrade)

Sleep in igloo-shaped pods under the Northern Lights

These brilliant insulated domes, perched on the edge of frozen Lake Torassieppi, come with log fires, cosy beds, rugs and plenty of blankets.

Why we stay here

An unrivalled Northern Lights experience – especially when you’re wrapped up in a blanket with a glass of prosecco in your hand.

Important Notes

  • Fly into and out of Kittilä Airport (KTT). Finding flights for this northwards voyage to the Arctic Circle can be a little difficult. Please let us know if you are struggling and we will do our very best to help.

  • You need to have a driver’s licence from your home country in order to drive a snowmobile. Otherwise, you can still take part but you’ll need to ride pillion.

  • Please be aware that the Northern Lights are weather-dependent and not guaranteed to appear on every trip.

  • For December dates of this trip, we will be staying in the cosy cabins of Hotel Jeris instead of Torassieppi Village.

  • Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control – but we’ll always do our best to ensure it has little impact on your experience. From time to time, we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh and exciting.
