If you don’t fancy the sub-zero temperatures associated with Northern Scandinavia in winter, consider an autumn tour. Enjoy the best of Finnish Lapland, staying in the lakeside retreat of Torassieppi, located 230kms north of the Arctic Circle. This local resort offers a great range of early Northern Lights activities as well as comfortable Scandinavian style accommodation.
Enjoy peaceful afternoons at the lake, discovering the nature around Torassieppi. You can pick as many berries and mushrooms as you can carry, the lake is full with tasty fish and the Jeris River is just a stone throw away.
During your stay, you get to know the local reindeers, and hunt for the Auroras by mountain bike. You will also chase the Northern Lights by bus in search of the area with the best sightings.
Day 1: Arrive and transfer to your hotel then campfire BBQ by the river for Northern Lights searching
Day 2: Forest exploring and then an evening mountain bike Aurora hunt
Day 3: Berry picking, mushrooming, walking around the lakes before an evening 'Aurora Hunt' by minibus
Day 4: Departure
