Itinerary

Day 1 Kittila Arrival

On arrival at Kittila Airport transfer to your accommodation at either Hotel Harriniva or Hotel Torassieppi in Muonio - the transfer time is 45 minutes - 1 hour. The rest of the day is free to relax, before dinner at the hotel.

Day 2 Reindeer Farm, Husky Farm, Introduction to Fishing, Tree Planting & Evening Campfire Experience

After breakfast, transfer the short distance to the Torassieppi Reindeer farm, a unique, 100-year-old Lappish farmhouse and small museum. Learn about a year in the life of a reindeer, visit the old barn and museum, meet and feed the reindeer and try your hand at lasso throwing. Next we move on to the Husky Farm for a short tour and a chance to meet the eager teams of dogs, and of course the puppies if there are any! Then there will be an introduction to fishing, for those who would like to try their hand at angling, before we relax with a picnic lunch around the fire. After lunch we head off into the forest and join our hosts in their mission to become a carbon neutral destination - help by planting your own tree! The rest of the afternoon is free to relax - go for a walk or join an optional canoe trip on the clear waters of Lake Torassieppi. Dinner at the hotel, then later in the evening your local guide will tell you all about the secrets of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, and lead you on a walk into the hotel grounds where we'll make a campfire and cook pancakes. If you are lucky maybe the Lights might come out .....and if not the starry night sky can still amaze you.

Day 3 Day at Leisure, Finnish Sauna and Aurora Dome Overnight

Enjoy the day as you wish - relax, take a walk or a swim in the lake. Or there are many optional activities such as hiking with huskies, hiking in the National Park, horse riding, canoeing, or river rafting. Or you can hire some fishing equipment if you enjoyed yesterdays introduction to angling. Today you will check out of your hotel room and into your Aurora Dome. With its comfy beds, fireplace and panoramic window it's the perfect way to spend a night on the shores of the lake. Sauna, toilet and shower facilities are located nearby (50m away). Then this evening after dinner there is a chance to try a Finnish sauna experience by the lake.
