ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

Day 1

Welcome to Finland in the Autumn, a time many consider the best for observing the Northern Lights. You will be met at Kittila airport and transferred to Harriniva resort, where you will check into your beautiful riverside log cabin. Make yourself at home, have a relaxing sauna and take a seat on your cozy terrace, maybe the Aurora Borealis will appear on your first evening.

Day 2

After breakfast, take a quick stroll to the local reindeer farm where you will learn about the year of the reindeer, meet and feed the reindeer and try your hand at lasso throwing. Next, you move on to the husky farm for a short tour and a chance to meet the eager teams of dogs.

Today a picnic lunch will be enjoyed around the fire but before this, there will be an introduction to fishing for those who would like to try their hand at catching a few fish or you can just relax surrounded by nature.

This afternoon you will head off with your guide into the forest. Here you will join in Harriniva in its mission to become a carbon-neutral holiday destination. In carefully designated areas the aim is to replenish the forest and you will plant your own tree to offset your already reduced carbon footprint during your stay. The rest of the afternoon is free to relax, go for a walk in the surrounding countryside or join an optional canoe trip across the clear waters of Lake Torassieppi.

After a delightful dinner in the restaurant, you meet your guide and the secrets behind the Northern Lights. After an informative presentation, you will head out and make a campfire. While making pancakes on the campfire you’ll find yourself in the perfect spot to admire the Northern Lights should they choose to appear across the sky.

Day 3

Breakfast will be taken in the main restaurant after which you are free to enjoy the day as you wish. There are many activities to choose from such as Hiking with huskies or in the national park, horse riding, canoeing, river rafting, all of which we can pre-book for you.

During the day it is time to check out of your Riverside Cabin and into your Aurora dome. With its comfy beds, fireplace and panoramic window it’s the perfect way to spend a night on the shore of the lake. This evening after dinner you will transfer to the Arctic Sauna World, an ecological wellness centre based on Finnish mythology and folktales, for a Finnish 5 sauna experience with lake swimming for those who are feeling brave. This is a wonderful chance to catch a glimpse of those elusive lights while soothing away the day.

Day 4

This morning you will wake up to the gentle sounds of the water lapping against the shore of the lake. Enjoy one last hearty breakfast before checking out of your dome and departing for the airport in time for your onward journey.
