The surrounding wilderness means a lack of light pollution, giving you ideal viewing conditions for the Northern Lights. Your itinerary includes two dedicated activities to get you out further into the wilds and on the search for the Aurora. From visiting a prime lookout spot with your expert guide to a reindeer-pulled sleigh, you’ll be searching the skies in memorable ways.

Torassieppi Reindeer Farm

Nights: 2-4

Located on the edge of Lake Torasjarvi,  and bordering the Pallas Ylläs National Park, Torassieppi Reindeer Farm is situated in one of the most picturesque wilderness areas in Finland.

The farm building dates back to 1847 making it one of the oldest in the area.  Today it has been lovingly renovated and accommodation has been added nearby so that guests can stay in this spectacular spot.

Here they offer guests a choice of accommodation, in winter cottage rooms or in detached winter cottages.


  • Torassieppi has a central restaurant and reception building which is a short walk from the rooms and winter cottages.  A roaring fire accompanies the evening meals which include as much local produce as possible Typically they are served in a buffet format and include traditional Finnish ingredients such as reindeer (of course dietary requirements are also catered for).
  • There is no bar but alcohol can be purchased from the restaurant so it can be enjoyed with your evening meal.
  • The reception building also has a small gift shop area which sells a variety of local crafts, including reindeer hides and traditional carved Kuksa cups.
  • There are two lakeside saunas at Torassieppi which are both heated in the evenings for guests to use. Separate facilities are provided for both men and women.
  • There is free Wi-Fi in the main restaurant building.
  • Tea and coffee are available free of charge throughout the day in the hotel restaurant / bar area.
  • During the winter months, the nearby Torassieppi Winter Village is carved out of snow and you can personalise your stay by adding an overnight in one of the amazing snow igloos. 
  • A perfect spot to search for the Aurora, there are also a few wooden benches on the edge of the frozen lake, which are ideal for enjoying the expansive wilderness and hopefully a Northern Lights display or two


Room types

DOUBLE/TWIN ROOMS: Torassieppi has only eight rooms which are located a short walk from the main building. There are two rooms to each small cabin building. Each room is completely independent with their own en-suite bathroom and entrance but some rooms can be interconnecting at the guest's request.

Other options

Jeris and Torassieppi Aurora Huts

Supplements from: £159pp

The unique Aurora Huts at Jeris and Torassieppi offer a rather different overnight experience for guests. These huts have pleasant, cosy décor, with floor to ceiling windows on one wall, allowing you to gaze at the night sky in search of the Northern Lights. The Aurora huts at Torassieppi are located close to the lakeshore, whereas the huts at Jeris are located in the woods. The exact location of your dome will be confirmed upon check-in at your hotel.

Torassieppi Winter Cottages

Torassieppi offers 8 detached winter cottages to which you can upgrade. The cottages are ideal for those who want more space or for larger groups of people. Located close to the main restaurant, they are only a short walk away through the snow-laden trees and close to the frozen lake beyond.

The smaller cottages contain a fireplace, living room area, toilet, shower, hairdryer and kitchenette. There are two bedrooms, one with twin beds and another with three beds (including a set of bunk beds). These can accommodate two to five people, we feel they are ideal for 3 or 4 adults.

Torassieppi also has some larger cottages and these have their own sauna in addition to the fireplaces. The larger cottages offer a living room area, toilet, shower, hairdryer and kitchenette with a kettle. They have two bedrooms which have twin beds and a sleeping alcove with bunk beds. Whilst they can sleep up to 6 people, we feel that they are most suited to 4 or 5 adults.

Please contact our Travel Experts for a quotation if you would like to upgrade to a winter cottage.

Traveller Reviews

Our honeymoon in Lapland was a real trip of a lifetime! 20 March 2020

We really felt in safe hands with Aurora zone throughout and they planned an amazing week of activities which we could tailor to best suit us. Torassieppi is an incredible destination, with the friendliest and most helpful staff and guides ever (and the absolute best food throughout - and they were great at catering to our dietary requirements!) The activities and guides really made it special,

from a romantic night-time reindeer sleigh ride to snowshoeing through the Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park. On top of that, there was so much to do locally, including a reindeer and husky farm, winter village with incredible ice sculptures, and lots of great places to head off cross-country skiing/snowshoeing/fat biking. The real icing on the cake was seeing the northern lights, but even if we didn't it would've been an unforgettable trip. We also need to mention that we found both Aurora zone and Torassieppi to be really LGBT+ friendly, and we felt really comfortable throughout to be ourselves and enjoy our honeymoon in the incredible landscape of northern Finland.
