Programme Information

____

Lapland ‘offline,’ is an adventure into the unspoilt nature of the Lappish wilderness. Here you will regain your sense of well-being through a complete digital detox! Relish in the tastes of the freshest organic and locally produced food. Meals are cooked on an open fire in the most authentic surroundings of the 100 years old Torassieppi reindeer farm.  Torassieppi Winter Village is located on the edge of a large and quiet lake and is a traditional reindeer farm and guesthouse. This idyllic location, right next to Pallas-Ylläs National Park, (whose bare-topped fells offer dramatic views and the cleanest air in Europe), has no light pollution either. All of these elements make it a prime spot for viewing the Northern Lights, as well as for enjoying the best of what Lapland's wild nature has to offer. You can discover the Lappish well-being rituals of Sauna, cabin life and ice-hole swimming and feast on the local delicacies of reindeer and salmon. Venture into the national park and breathe the cleanest air in the world. Let Lapland heal your soul and refresh your spirit.

Please note that the use of phones, computers, tablets or similar electronic devices is not permitted and that all such items must be handed in for safe keeping for the duration of your stay. But we're not completely mean, cameras are allowed. And after this digital detox, you might beg us to keep your smart phones locked up forever...

Detailed Itinerary

____

Day 1 – Welcome to Torassieppi

From Kittilä airport it is only a 45 minute transfer to Torassieppi, where you will be welcomed by your guide and receive information on the days to come. After settling in to your accommodation, you can enjoy your dinner in the restaurant. All food is prepared from local and organic ingredients. It is now that your digital detox begins. This is also when you need to hand over electronic devices, ALL of them. If you need to be reached by family and loved ones, you can give them Torassieppi 24/7 emergency phone number. If you haven't brought an alarm clock, you can request a wake-up call, which is by way of a knock on the door!

Day 2 – Local culture & the great outdoors

After a hearty breakfast, your guide will lead you to the reindeer farm, which is a short walk from your accommodation. You will be introduced to the reindeer herder who will take you on a 3 km ride on a reindeer sled and give you an insight into the life of reindeer. There will be an opportunity to enter the traditional guest house and museum. This step back in time shows you the tools and artefacts used and made by the original family of the house, enabling you to catch a rare glimpse of what life was like in this northern land before roads and motorised vehicles. The house is one of the few remaining in Lapland after the Second World War.

Lunch will be served in a traditional Lappish kota around a roaring fire. After a cross-country skiing lesson, your guide will help you test your new-found skills on a scenic route on maintained tracks through the national park. Admire the peaceful views while pumping all of that pure air through your lungs and working up an appetite... Cross-country skiing is one of the best forms of low impact, full body exercise there is. Dinner will be served in the restaurant.

Day 3 – Snowshoes hike & Northern Lights husky safari

After breakfast, you'll be strapping on your snowshoes and hiking through the winter landscape. Snowshoes give us access to areas of unspoilt snow and without them, it would be almost impossible to cross. Go slow and easy, or, if you prefer, stomp in the deep drifts and break a sweat! Lunch will be served in the restaurant. Trust us, you  will be ravenous! The rest of the afternoon is at leisure. If you feel up to it you can take another circuit on your skis or snowshoes. The equipment is free to use during your entire stay. Dinner is served in the restaurant in the evening, after which it is time for the, ‘ride of your life’. You will be pulled through the dark night on sledges by teams of eager huskies. If the sky is clear, chances of seeing the northern lights are high, but even on a cloudy night, this is one of our most romantic trips to the forest.

Day 4 – Farewell Torassieppi

After breakfast, and the return of all your electronic equipment, it is time to bid farewell to this enchanting place and take your transfer back to the airport. This will be just enough time for you to mentally prepare yourself for the return to your normal life, feeling relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on anything. Even Facebook!
