Jeris - Winter Cottage Escape Overview

Your cosy cottage, surrounded by stunning scenery, is an ideal retreat after a day of arctic activities. This holidays includes a night in the wilderness, with dog sleds and snowmobiles, as well as snowshoeing and cross country skiing. This holiday to Jeris really encapsulates the essence of this remote region. Max group size 20 approx

This Jeris itinerary brilliantly captures the essence of Finnish Lapland. Our trusted guides will make sure you get to experience the most popular and unique experiences the area has to offer.

This holiday is designed as an escape from the every day and includes a host of unforgettable activities and encounters which will leave you feeling refreshed and exhilarated.

You will meet a reindeer herder and find out about their way of life and the importance of their animals before taking to a sleigh for a three-kilometre-long ride through the forests with the reindeer pulling you along. An unforgettable husky safari will really provide you with a connection to this area, while a snowmobile safari will take you further afield, pushing adrenaline levels higher.

Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing activities are both included, giving you the means to explore independently later in your stay should you wish. On one evening, a Northern Lights workshop and camp will have you fully prepared for spotting the Aurora, should they make an appearance. A visit to Torassieppi Winter Village, to marvel at its frozen rooms and ice sculptures, is also in the itinerary.

At the end of each day, you can relax by the fire in your winter cottage and enjoy your own private sauna.

For an extra-special end to your holiday in Finland, why not spend the night in one of the snow rooms at Torassieppi Winter Village, or in one of the stunning Aurora Domes which offer wonderful views of the night sky? Details of both options can be found in the 'Personalise' section of the holiday page.
