Take a short break to Finnish Lapland and enjoy all of the winter essentials on this 5 day holiday. Learn the ways of the husky musher on an exciting dog sledding safari, speed off into the winter wilderness on a snowmobile, and even spend an extraordinary night sleeping in a snow igloo! After active days outside, the sauna will be waiting for you each evening to relax and warm up the Finnish way and you can dine with ease with breakfast and dinner included each day.
Fly from London to Kittilä Airport where you will be met and transferred to Hotel Torassieppi, located about 1 hour's drive away in Muonio. Collect warm winter clothing for the adventure ahead and check in to your cosy double room for your 3 night stay. In the evening, if there are clear skies take a stroll outside in search of the northern lights overhead.
After breakfast have some free time to explore the local area before embarking on an exciting husky safari into the Lappish wilderness. You'll have the chance to experience what it's like to both ride in the sled and to drive it! In the evening you can relax like the locals do with a sauna. (B, D)

After breakfast, check out of your room and have some free time to go skiing on your own or to book an optional excursion. Early this afternoon learn how to safely drive a snowmobile before speeding off into the snowy fells. After the active day a relaxing sauna is waiting for you back at Hotel Torassieppi. Tonight, you get to spend an extraordinary night in Torassieppi's traditional snow igloo! Igloos have been used in the northern countries for accommodation for centuries. The temperature outside can drop down to -30°C but the inside temperature stays moderate. Soft and warm blankets, thick sleeping bags and hot juice will ensure you have a warm and comfortable stay.
