Itinerary

Day 1: Goodbye city lights, hello Northern Lights!

Once you’ve landed in Kittilä airport, it’s time to leave the bright lights of the city behind and head to the Northern Lights of Torassieppi. The cosy wooden cabins here will be your home for the next few days, and you’ll find them invitingly nestled on the edge of an impressive lake with dramatic views of the Pallas-Ylläs National Park. Boasting zero light pollution and the cleanest air in Europe, your accommodation is perfectly placed for a totally refreshing detox. Your fellow detoxing Flashpackers can be met over a delicious homemade dinner where you tuck into incredible organic dishes prepared by the locals.

Day 2: Enjoy life in a Christmas card

After a hearty breakfast, we’ll help you realise your childhood fantasy by leading you a few minutes down the road to the local reindeer farm. After a magical ride on a reindeer sled surrounded by stunning natural scenery, you’ll enjoy an informative chat from the the herders and be given the opportunity to explore an authentic Lappish manor house. Build up your strength for an action-packed afternoon ahead, and enjoy lunch by a roaring fire in a traditional Lappish kota. The rest of the day will be taken up with an expert-led cross-country ski lesson, after which you can test your new-found skills on a scenic route of well maintained tracks. Work up an appetite as you admire the landscape’s untouched beauty and pump pure air through your lungs. When the sun finally fades over the snow, it’s time to switch skis for sweaters and cosy down for another delicious dinner.

No winter wonderland is complete without a reindeer ride

Day 3: Snowmobiles, saunas and husky safaris

Explore this winter wonderland on a revved-up snowmobile for the most exhilarating way to blaze across the endless white tundra. After our snowmobile tour we figure you might need some relaxation after spinning your way across the deep snow, so get ready for a seriously steamy sauna session, complete with all the heat and smoke you’d expect in a traditional Finnish sauna. After dinner in the the warm glow of your hotel, it’s time to level up from your reindeer ride to a fast-paced husky safari. Slice through the trees pulled by howling huskies as you look out for the shimmering and ethereal Northern Lights (best spotted on a clear night).

To squeeze every last minute out of those stunning Northern Lights, we offer the option of upgrading your cabin to an Aurora Dome* where you can sleep beneath the stunning skies with a glass of Prosecco in hand. These are chalet-style pods that keep in all the heat and let in all the lights you want to see. You have comfy beds, a fire, and a spectacular view of the frozen Lake Torassieppi.

*Glamping is an optional extra available for one night only – please ask our team for more information.
