Tundra Experience in Käsivarsi Wilderness near Kilpisjärvi

Experience Käsivarsi Wilderness during your Kilpisjärvi holiday

The village of Kilpisjärvi is perched on the edge of the vast Käsivarsi Wilderness region in northwestern Lapland. Getting to the wilderness is easiest and safest in the company of a professional guide. The panoramic vistas and the tranquility of this remote area create a unique experience.

The duration of the trip is 4 hours and it is organized from December 1 until March 18. 

Käsivarsi Wilderness is the vastest tundra region in Lapland

There are no roads in Käsivarsi wilderness and motorized vehicles are limited to snowmobiles driven by locals and authorized guides. You’ll be comfortably seated in the guide’s snowmobile passenger sled, enjoying the ride and the views as he skillfully steers the vehicle towards the tundra.

Soon after leaving the village behind you ascend above the tree line. The trail leads you across amazing barren landscapes which seem to stretch into infinity. You might spot a reindeer herd on its winter pasture, a dog musher training his team or snowmobilers on a day’s outing.

Fish Ahoy! Try your luck in Käsivarsi Wilderness

During the trip you can try your hand at ice fishing and the guide provides the equipment and instruction. If fishing is not your thing, just sit back, enjoy the exotic views and the peaceful atmosphere and take pictures.

Wilderness lunch on the tundra

A day in the great outdoors gives you a good appetite and the guide is prepared to serve you a picnic lunch in a wilderness shelter. Enjoy a delicious filled sandwich, roasted sausage, homebaked pastry and hot non-alcoholic beverages.
