An authentic reindeer farm dating back to 1847, Torassiepi is a charming and low key place to appreciate the beauty of Finnish Lapland and the locals’ way of life.

Kate L, Victoria and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

There are eight cabins (including three with their own saunas) each able to take four or six guests, and a further eight twin rooms, all located in the lovely forests by Torassieppi Lake and none more than five minutes' walk from the main building. More adventurous guests can also spend a night wrapped up in snug arctic sleeping bags on reindeer skin covered beds in the new snow hotel igloo rooms, decorated with ice sculptures.

Torassiepi has a number of culinary options including a charming wooden restaurant serving Lappish delicacies such as reindeer, Arctic char, berries and mushrooms; a new ice restaurant and bar and two kotas (traditional conical Sami tent structures). Finally, Poripitti is another wooden restaurant catering for larger parties.

Activities on offer include visits to the old reindeer museum and the manor house, or reindeer or husky dog sledding safaris. Visiting the reindeer farm is a fascinating insight into life in Lapland, and snowmobiling is available from another hotel nearby.

Interior shot at the Levi Igloos

Hullu Poro Penthouse

Hullu Poro Penthouse

Located in the heart of Levi, the Hullu Poro Penthouse is the most luxurious place to stay in town, and the ideal solution for families not keen on the idea of staying in igloos, cabins or snow hotels.

Arctic Snow Hotel

Arctic Snow Hotel

The Arctic Snow Hotel, near the Finnish Lapland centre of Rovaniemi, is, in our humble opinion, the best accommodation in the vicinity of the town. This is probably less of a family-friendly place than many of our other Lapland options, but great for couples looking to experience the magic of Lapland.
