Treat the family to a range of fabulous Finnish activities and experiences on this fun-filled holiday to Jeris. You’ll get to try out a host of classic activities on the snow, stay in a wonderful winter cottage, and explore a true winter wonderland. 

As a family, you will journey through this landscape in a range of ways. Huskies are some of the most enthusiastic creatures you will ever meet and you'll enjoy their company on a 17-kilometre husky ride and, during a 30-kilometre snowmobile safari, you’ll see some superb scenery and witness the scale of the wilderness. 

Get ready to learn how to ski cross-country just like the locals do, as well as enjoying a snowshoe hike in the forest. Your family will also take part in ice-fishing, testing your luck on a frozen lake – it’s a much-loved sport in the Nordic countries.

Not that the line-up of local delights ends there. At Torassieppi Winter Village you'll eat lunch in an ice restaurant. There will also be a visit to Torassieppi Reindeer Farm, which has stood since 1847. Learn to throw a lasso and take a sleigh ride through the forest.

Jeris is the perfect place to spot the Northern Lights, so we've organised a workshop and campfire with an expert guide who will tell you all about the myths, legends and science behind the Aurora. Hopefully, you will get the chance to witness them at their shimmering best during your stay. 

At the end of every adventure, you will return to the warmth of your very own cosy winter cottage accommodation.

Special Nights

Spend the night in an Aurora Dome

From: £107pp

The Aurora Domes are a spectacular addition to Torassieppi and Jeris and offer families the chance for some serious Aurora glamping.

On the banks of Lake Torassieppi or Lake Jerisjärvi, the domes provide the chance for you to gaze at the sky and hopefully the Northern Lights, from the comfort of your bed. Each of the domes is kept toasty warm by a log burning stove and faces north for the best Aurora views. They are a truly cosy and unique place to spend the night.

The domes have either a double or twin bed but there is room for two extra beds if you all wish to share. They are only around 50-100 metres from the sauna building and toilet facilities.

They are an unforgettable place for any family to spend the night.

For December dates at Torassieppi, you will have dinner at your hotel, prior to transferring to your dome at approximately 8.30/9pm; from early January onwards, you will check-in at approximately 4 pm and have dinner at Torassieppi. If you are staying in an Aurora Dome in Jeris, check-in is approximately 4 pm throughout the season and you will have dinner at Jeris as well.

At both locations, you will check-out after breakfast.

The price shown is based on you spending the final night of your holiday in a dome and you will therefore not require your hotel accommodation. If you wish to spend any other night in a dome then supplements will apply so please ask our team for a quotation.

Available: Monday to Sunday

Torassieppi Winter Village

From: £50pp

A dazzling construction of artfully crafted ice and snow, the Winter Village at Torassieppi is built anew each season, consisting of snow rooms and beautiful ice sculptures for families to enjoy.

During your stay, we can arrange for you and your family to spend the night inside one of their snow rooms, enjoying a unique night’s sleep. We would not advise this for children under the age of 12 but if you have teenagers, this is sure to be a memorable choice for your trip! Each snow room can accommodate a maximum of 2 people.

You will be transferred here following dinner at your hotel and will check into you snow room at approximately 8:30/9pm. There are approximately 10 of these snow rooms and each contains an ice bed, topped with a mattress. You will be provided with arctic grade sleeping bags which should keep you toasty despite the average temperature in the igloo of around -5°C! The toilet and sauna facilities are approximately 200 metres’ walk away.

Following your night’s sleep, you will enjoy breakfast at Torassieppi before you head back to your hotel. If you choose to spend the last night of your holiday at the Winter Village then you may have some time to explore the delightful surroundings before you head directly to the airport for your return flights home.

The price shown is based on guests spending their first or last night at the Winter Village and checking out of their hotel room/cottage beforehand. If you would like to spend any other night in a dome then this is possible but supplements will apply. 

NB: Please be aware the activity schedule on your trip will be subject to change and we may be unable to confirm exactly which night you will spend at Torassieppi, although we will make every effort to accommodate specific requests. You will be provided with your final activity schedule including confirmation of the date of your stay at Torassieppi upon arrival.

Terms

For our full booking terms and conditions please click here

Holiday group size (approximate)

Minimum 4 people; maximum 28

Group size

We always try to provide an approximation of the group size you can expect to be with for the duration of each of our holidays. It may be that you are joined by others for parts of your holiday (such as transfers and particular activities) but the above number reflects those you can normally expect to be with from beginning to end. If group size is something which is particularly important to you, please speak to our Travel Experts and they can suggest the best holidays for you.

Tailor-made holiday group sizes will vary for all activities as will the group size for any additional activities you book.

Minimum numbers required for a holiday to operate

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section). If your holiday departure has not yet reached the minimum number, you will be told at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date is not guaranteed by nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you to discuss the available options as per our booking conditions.

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities is always subject to change and you will be provided with your final itinerary upon arrival at your destination.

Single supplement

Please note that some of our holidays may incur a single supplement. Please speak to one of our Travel Experts who will provide you with a quotation.

Medical history and advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.

Pregnancy

If you are pregnant at the time of booking your holiday or you discover you are pregnant prior to your departure, firstly – congratulations! Secondly – please tell us as soon as possible. This situation does arise, and we are able to advise you both from our own first-hand experience and from discussing this at length with our expert local partners who have experience in this area. The more notice you can give us the better, in order to suggest any adaptions to the itinerary you have booked which will reduce the risk to both mother and baby. Please contact our customer service team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

Insurance

Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

Reduced mobility

If you have a reduced level of mobility, then please contact our travel experts to discuss the suitability of this holiday in relation to your requirements.

Experience and fitness

Most of the activities we offer have been designed for beginners who have no prior experience and are of all age ranges and fitness levels. Our guides provide expert advice, tuition and instructions prior to any activity going ahead. Activities are designed to be enjoyed and not endured, but some, do require a more basic level of fitness than others. If you have any questions, then please contact one of our Travel Experts who can provide first-hand advice.

The only holidays which are not as suitable for complete beginners are the multi-night safaris which involve several days in wilderness cabins travelling by either snowmobile or husky safari. Again, this all depends on the individual taking part, but some prior experience and understanding of these types of activities can be very helpful and a greater level of fitness is recommended.

Guides & Safety

When partaking in any activity, it is imperative that everyone in your group listens very closely to the instructions provided by the guide and that they are abided by at all times. Our guides are experts in their field and no one knows the environment better than these highly knowledgeable and experienced providers.

Prior to starting any activity, please make it clear to your guide if there is any element of the safety briefing you are unsure of or would like to clarify before you set off.

Our guides will always take local conditions into account when considering whether an activity can go ahead. This is, in part, why your itinerary is subject to change at short notice. This rarely happens, however, if it does, we will always endeavour to reschedule the activity for later in your holiday. If this is not possible then the cost of the activity will be refunded to you when you return home.

Our guides' word on activities is always final and your safety is their principal concern at all times; please respect their decisions. By following their instructions, your safety and enjoyment during each activity will be greatly enhanced.

NB: In order to participate in our holidays, all guests must be able to understand instructions given in English. These instructions may be delivered verbally or in writing and will include vital safety information and ongoing instruction during activities.

Minimum and Maximum Age

The minimum age for this holiday can be found in the ‘Key Facts’ section of the holiday overview.

Younger family members may be able to participate but may not be able to take part in all activities. Please contact one of our Travel Experts if you have any questions.

Booking activities locally and equipment hire

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.

In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

Car hire

If your trip includes car hire the named driver must have a credit card registered in their name which they can present when they collect their car along with their driving licence, as a deposit will be held on the credit card.  Please see your trip dossier for full details.

Travel Safety and Foreign Office Advice

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/ New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/ Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/ The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

Booking your own flights - cancellation disclaimer

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

Minimum accommodation occupancy:

Cabin A: price is based on 2 adults sharing a cabin with one or more children (minimum occupancy for a cabin A is 2 adults)

Cabin B: price is based on 2 adults sharing with 2 children (minimum occupancy for a cabin B is 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults)

Cabin C: price is based on 3 adults sharing with 2 children (minimum occupancy for a cabin C is 3 adults and 2 children or 4 adults)

Children and snowmobiles

For safety reasons, children under the age of 16 will typically travel in a sledge pulled behind the guides’ snowmobile on any snowmobile tours. From approximately 15 years onwards, children may be allowed to ride pillion on the back of a parent’s snowmobile. The guide will make a decision on the day as to where each individual child shall travel, and this may depend on the child’s height and the guide’s confidence in their ability to travel safely as a pillion for the duration of any safari. The guide’s decisions are final.

The driver of a snowmobile must be 18 years or over and have a valid driving licence. If an adult is unable to share a snowmobile with either a child or another adult in their party, they will be required to pay a single snowmobile supplement as all prices are based on two people sharing.

Traveller Reviews

  • We intend on coming back in the future 10 April 2018 by The Willison Family

    Snowmobiling was fantastic and we intend on coming back in the future to do a longer trip for 2 or 4 nights. We paid a little extra to have our own snowmobiles. The guide, Tonio was fantastic and a great asset to the team. Tonio was particularly informative, helpful, very lovely and great fun. All the staff at the hotel were helpful. My son managed to have a nosebleed on the sheets

  • I can't give a least enjoyable activity 27 February 2018 by The Ratcliffe Family

    I can't give a least enjoyable activity - we enjoyed all the activities immensely. I suppose I was looking forward to the ice fishing least but I actually found it really great fun. Our local guide, Becky, was most excellent - informative, friendly, helpful and good company. Our cabin was really excellent - warm, cosy, clean and well equipped. It was more modern and newer than I was expecting -

  • A special week that will be imprinted in our memories forever! 12 February 2017 by The Sandys Family

    My wife and I booked to go to Finnish Lapland with our kids (aged 8 and 10) to have some Arctic wilderness adventures and to see the Northern Lights. Well, we were not disappointed! What a fantastically amazing and unique week we had. We stayed in a wood lodge, which was so lovely and warm. The sauna was used at least 3 times a day too. As for the activities...every day was different

    with brilliantly run activities. The husky sledging was great fun. Snowmobiling at 50kph across a frozen lake - awesome. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing were a great way to explore the snow-covered forests. Small groups and excellent guides, really enhanced the experiences we took part in.We were concerned our kids may not eat much, as they are fussy eaters, but how wrong we were. They had so much food every day and tried many a new thing. Varied and plentiful food all week. The Northern Lights. Well, what can I say? We hoped we would see them at least once. We saw them on 5 of the 7 nights, sometimes for hours at a time. Absolutely magical and breathtaking. Go to the middle of the frozen lake late at night to maximise the views. We were so blessed to see them for so long the week we went (you can pay 10 Euros to get a text alert for when they are out too. That helped us catch some unexpected displays too, right outside our cabin). The kids took to all the activities with excitement and enthusiasm and my wife and I had such a special week that will be imprinted in our memories forever!

  • Seeing the Aurora was magical. 14 February 2016 by Donna Westall

    We all enjoyed different things, but snowshoeing, skiing, huskies and reindeer all featured. Snowmobiles were great fun for the drivers. And seeing the Aurora was magical.

  • We all had a great time 14 February 2016 by Paul Corke

    We picked this holiday because of the wide range of activities that were included, and we weren't disappointed. We all had a great time. Katrina was always friendly and helpful and the local guide, Toini, was brilliant. You could tell that she loves her job and she was great with the children. (Most enjoyable activity?): For the rest of the family it was either the reindeer safari or the

    snowmobiles or the skiing or the sledges by the hill depending on when you ask. For me the husky sledding just wins because I loved the combination of man and animals working together; the silence, whilst on the move, combined with the beautiful scenery and the sense of isolation in the wilderness.

    Thank you for a brilliant holiday - once in a lifetime trip for us. Our Finnish guide was excellent and a real asset to our group.

  • Brilliant holiday 25 February 2013 by Alison Muirhead

    We had a brilliant holiday! Perfect for the children (10+14), a little challenging but not daunting, they were able to participate at an adult level. Many thanks! We have already been on the website looking at our next possible holiday - perhaps further afield next time.

  • Fantastic holiday 09 January 2013 by Nicholas Sherwood

    We had a fantastic holiday which was topped off by seeing the aurora on our last night. The clear starry night was also an incredible experience. We were all very sad to return home.

  • A fantastic holiday from start to finish 10 April 2012 by Carl Hitchens

    A fantastic holiday from start to finish. Totally exhausting but great fun from the first day. The log cabin was great to return to after a hard days outings. The hotel staff were great even presenting my son with a cake on his 8th birthday which we did not ask for or expect.

  • Excellent 22 February 2010 by Victoria Elliott

    Overall the whole family were really impressed with the log cabin at Jeris. The whole place was out of this world - so peaceful. The local guide was fantastic with the children and took time to explain Finnish ways to them. The food at Hotel Jeris was fantastic and the staff were brilliant. Not one activity was unenjoyable. The huskies were fantastic, the excitement of the skidoos skating across

    the lake was exhilarating and the fun of snowshoe walking. The holiday introduced us as a family to Nordic skiing and allowed us to experience new activities as a family. Thank you so much for such a brilliant holiday - it did take our breath away and kept a teenage son away from computers and PS3 so thank you very much.
