Guests at Torassieppi have access to some of the best Arctic experiences in Lapland.
The reindeer herding heritage remains one of the main attractions and guests can enjoy the museum, which documents a unique way of life and how the community has adapted to the modern world. Of course, you can see reindeer up close (you often see them whilst on activities in this area) and you can get to grips with some of the traditional herding techniques such as lassoing.
You can enjoy a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride through the pristine wintery landscape, taking in the snowy surroundings in the company of these great animals. You can also explore on foot using snowshoes and cross-country skis to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area.
As the lake is frozen there are no water sports available, but the ice is put to good use as trails are marked for both dog sledding and snowmobiling adventures instead. Dog sledding in Finland is one of the most popular activities we offer and simply is a must-do on your visit here.
For Aurora hunters, Torassieppi’s location is ideal and there are many Northern Lights excursions available. The lights are visible in the area from very late August through to early April.
All of these options can be viewed in our Torassieppi Tailor-Made winter programme.
