Torassieppi - Lakeside Auroras Overview

Torassieppi resides in the wonderfully remote forested-fells of Finland. A 7-night stay in this secluded spot gives you an excellent chance of seeing the Northern Lights and our itinerary even includes a night in an Aurora Dome. You’ll also take part in brilliant daytime activities to complete your holiday.

This holiday offers guests an escape to Lapland, a wonderfully varied schedule containing exceptional experiences, along with excellent Northern Lights viewing opportunities.

Your base will be the delightful Torassieppi Reindeer Farm and Winter Cottages. Here you will spend six nights in their hotel room accommodation (or upgrade to a cosy winter cottage) and one unforgettable night in an Aurora Dome, where you can keep watch on the sky from the comfort of your bed.

During the days you will enjoy a wonderful variety of experiences and activities. There will be adventures such as a dog sled safari and a thrilling snowmobile adventure. You will gain an insight into local culture and life in the North during a visit to a reindeer farm, a cookery lesson, an evening with a shaman and an introduction to some local skills such as ice fishing. There will also be a snowshoe hike in the famous Pallas Fell area and a chance to relax in an Arctic Spa.

Torassieppi's location is ideal for any Aurora hunter as it sits in a pristine lakeside location, far from any light pollution. Within moments of the hotel, you can be gazing skywards at the Northern Lights in all of their glory. You will enjoy an Aurora campfire experience and a magical Aurora Snow Train ride to aid your viewing and your night in an Aurora Dome will also provide incredible opportunities.

This holiday gives you the opportunity to see Lapland at its best, during both the night and day.
