Heritage and beauty
The unique heritage of reindeer herding is one of the prime attractions here and reindeer are still herded here and in the surrounding area, meaning you can enjoy a close encounter with these magical creatures. There is a small museum with original artefacts on-site too which can be enjoyed and visitors can try their hand at traditional herding techniques such as lassoing.
Torassieppi also holds an enviable reputation for Northern Lights viewing. The sheer remoteness of this location ensures light pollution is kept to a bare minimum with only a handful of buildings in the surrounding region. Torassieppi also has a wonderful range of Northern Lights hunts by snowmobile or snowshoe as well as wonderful Arctic experiences by day including husky sledding and cross-country skiing.
Surrounding the hotel is the peaceful beauty of the fells and the bordering Pallas Ylläs National Park – a pristine snow-topped wilderness. Pallas Ylläs National Park is the third largest national park in Finland, covering some 1000 square kilometres. Its high fells are prime locations from which to seek out potential Auroras, as well as being ideal for the multitude of winter activities on offer. In the winter here, visitors can enjoy some of the cleanest air in Europe as well as marvel at the snow-topped Taiga Forests.
