So many of us wonder how to fill the tiresome gap between Christmas and New Year. The excitement of Christmas has come to an end, the sluggish, post-Christmas dinner feeling has kicked in and there is little to do other than wait for New Year’s Eve. There is, however, an alluring alternative to how you spend your ‘betwixmas’ (as we here at The Aurora Zone like to call it) - fly to Kittilä and spend three nights in the festive winter wonderland that is Torassieppi.
Working hard with our partners in Northern Finland, we have created a trip that is the perfect post-Christmas treat. Every one of our most popular winter activities is included, as well as a night of Aurora glamping in a wonderful Aurora Dome.
Our longstanding relationship with the Pietikäinen family, owners of Torassieppi Reindeer Farm, means that we can cooperate and work closely with them to provide the best possible itinerary. Therefore, we are able to offer you three days full of activities, including a husky safari, snowshoeing and a reindeer experience.
We have also included an Aurora workshop so you can learn more about the display, before enjoying two Northern Lights experiences. One evening will see you venture out on snowmobiles into the wilds around Torassieppi in order to try and track down a display. Your guide will take you to a prime Northern Lights viewpoint that they have chosen based on their knowledge of Aurora activity and weather conditions that day. Lastly, your final night in Finland will be spent in the incredible Aurora Domes. These tent-like structures take glamping to a whole new level. Equipped with a see-through wall, wood burning stove and double bed with views out to the Arctic wilderness, this a sure to be an unforgettable night searching for the Northern Lights as you’re tucked up under your duvet.
So go on; treat yourself to a ‘Betwixmas’ break and make your friends envious on New Year’s Eve, as you gloat about the time that you spent in Finnish Lapland.
