Off the beaten track: the Three-Country Cairn in Kilpisjärvi

If you seek experiences off the beaten track, how about a visit to the northernmost tripoint in the world? It’s where the borders of Finland, Norway and Sweden meet at the Three-Country Cairn. And it’s easy to reach from the village of Kilpisjärvi.

The duration of the trip is 2 hours and it is organized from December 1 until April 30. Weather allowing we start the tours in late November.

Ride across the frozen Lake Kilpisjärvi in a snowmobile passenger sled

The tripoint is located in the wilderness and it is not accessible by road. It is at the edge of Malla Nature Reserve which is the oldest protected area in Finland.

During our tour you’ll travel across the frozen Lake Kilpisjärvi seated comfortably in a snowmobile passenger sled and you are surrounded by stunning scenery in every direction. A couple of stops are made on the way so you can stretch your legs and take in the views.

Three countries and two time zones at the Three-Country Cairn

A break is made at the border mark and you can stroll freely on the territory of each country. No border patrols or passport control here. When you walk around the cairn you visit three countries and two time zones in less than a minute!
