Remember what life was like before digital distractions and enjoy full focus on yourself, nature and well being. Visit an ancient reindeer farm dating back to 1847, enjoy guided cross country skiing and a husky safari, plus  a romantic evening snowshoe walk. Stay in a winter wonderland, in a small resort adjacent to the Pallas-Ylläs National Park, offering a nature lovers paradise with fabulous winter outdoor sports and local culture. After each day enjoy delicious and healthy food prepared from local and organic ingredients. Best of all,  each evening all you need to do to search for the fabled Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights is just step outside and look up!  

Day 1  Arrival in Kittila
On arrival at Kittilä airport transfer to your hotel in Toraieppi (approx. 45 minutes).  After you settle into your accommodation, a delicious organic and locally grown dinner awaits you in the hotel restaurant.  It's time to ditch your digital devices and enjoy all this area of Lapland has to offer.

Day 2  Reindeer Farm Visit and Sleigh Ride + Guided Cross-Country Skiing
Following breakfast visit a 100 year old traditional reindeer farm and museum, where the reindeer herder will give you an insight into Lappish life, and you will see one of the few remaining original Lappish manor houses and a museum of local life. Then enjoy a 3km ride in the reindeer sled, followed  by lunch in a traditional Lappish kota by the fire.

In the afternoon hop on to cross country skis and head out into the national park, just around the corner, for a 3 hour guided trip on well maintained tracks, through the untouched beauty of the national park. This is an excellent way to exercise as well as enjoy the quiet nature around you. A dinner of local and organic ingredients is served in the restaurant this evening.

Day 3 Morning at Leisure, Afternoon Husky Safari and Evening Northern Lights Hunt by Snowshoe.
In the morning relax and enjoy this winter wonderland. This afternoon after a safety and driving lesson it's time for an exciting 17km husky safari, with 2 person sharing each sled. You'll be amazed by the thrill of speeding over the snow,  with your happy, furry new friends! 

This evening after dinner enjoy a guided snowshoe hike, one of the best and quietest ways to explore the surrounding natural environment, even in deep snow, while searching for the fabled Aurora Borealis on a most memorable and enchanting trip into the forest.
