Snowhotel, Cool Glamping and Reindeer

Snowhotels and reindeer…

A nineteenth century reindeer farm and a classic smoke sauna – contrast with a neon-lit snowhotel and cool glamping

The lakeside village of Torassieppi offers immersion in traditional culture and contemporary experiences on a six-night holiday available until the end of April.

Staying on a 19th century reindeer farm, gain an insight into the life led by reindeer and their herders, and learn the importance of this special and historical bond in Finnish culture. Have a go at the ancient Sámi pastime of plaiting colourful woollen ribbons called pirtanauhu, used as belts and bootlaces, and learn how to cook traditional Lappish dishes using local and organic ingredients.

Snowhotel - Torassieppi_igluContrast a homely setting and rustic activities with a stay in the neon-lit Torassieppi Winter Village, with ten snow rooms, an ice bar and restaurant, or try glamping in brand new Aurora Domes – completely insulated, igloo-shaped tents with one transparent wall facing northwards for prime views of the unpolluted skies. Spend daylight hours in the wilderness experiencing a 25km husky safari, exploring on snowshoes or trying cross-country skiing, and search for the Northern Lights at night.

If you’ve never been in a traditional smoke sauna, your chance comes on this trip. A savusauna doesn’t have a chimney; smoke from burning wood fills the room, taking around five hours to heat, and is released via a small opening. The smoky heat feels soft and velvety, perfect for soothing the body after a day of exhilarating activity.

Artisan Travel’s six-night trip costs from £1,735 pp (two sharing) including return flights (Heathrow to Kittila), transfers, five nights’ full-board accommodation at the Torassieppi Reindeer Farm, one night full-board at the Winter Village, encounters with reindeer and herders, craft-making, cookery class, Arctic spa and smoke sauna, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and husky safari. Additional Dome stay per night is £115 pp. Departures until 24 April.
