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 travelers 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. Follow this up with a session of cross-country skiing, which will see you test your newfound skills on a scenic route. Lunch today will be a cozy 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 pristine Arctic beauty

    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 safari. Refuel on lunch at a nearby restaurant, then your outdoor adventure continues with a snowmobile safari. Spend the afternoon reveling in your pure Arctic surroundings, reaching thrilling speeds across the snow. Later on, gather with your group for your final dinner together. 

  • 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.

Torassieppi Village, Muonio

Cozy 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.

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

Why we stay here

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

What Flashpackers say

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.

  • To savor an 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.

  • 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 note that the optional hotel upgrade to the Aurora Domes is based on twin room sharing.

  • 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 cozy 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.
