This is actually one of Flashpack’s most popular tours, and trips sell-out every weekend. So I’d recommend booking well in advance (snag a spot during a sale), and that’ll help save some money on airfare as well.
You’ll need to book return flights to Kittilä Airport (KTT). Most flights will have a connection via London or Helsinki. I flew all the way from Indonesia, and found pretty affordable flights using Skyscanner!
Tours operate Thursday – Sunday between November – April. Northern Lights visibility not guaranteed.
Finland Digital Detox Adventure Tour
Price: 1,399 GBP (1,828 U.S.D)
What’s Included: All activities, from snowmobiles to cross-country skiing, included. 3 nights based on sharing twin rooms in a lakeside location 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 3 dinners. All internal transport between destinations included.
ALSO – Massively warm winter jumpsuit, gloves, heavy duty boots, balaclava, and wool socks rentals are all complimentary for guests of the Torassieppi Reindeer Farm & Cottages. So you actually don’t need to freak out all that much about being prepared for the freezing winter temperatures. Just make sure you’ve got some thermal underwear, wool scarf, gloves, and lots of layers.
I flew all the way from Bali, and was super nervous about surviving the cold – but it actually wasn’t that bad at all!!
- One of the aspects of this tour that I didn’t mention too much in this article is the food, which is odd – because it really was outstanding! From trying local delicacies like reindeer and moose, to a tasty breakfast buffet – I was extremely satisfied with the food provided by the Torassieppi Cottage crew.
- The trip is all-inclusive – you actually don’t even need to spend a dime the entire trip once you’ve landed in KT, except if you want to buy some alcohol (which most people do, lol).
- Handwarmers are for sale at reception for 2.50 euro, and they can be life-savers!!
And lastly, full disclosure – I edit my photos to bring out colors, contrast, highlights, etc. Seeing the Northern Lights with your own two eyes is a truly epic experience, but it doesn’t quite look like the photos you’ve seen in this post, lol.
