When a holiday in Lapland is on your bucket list you might face a dilemma: Where to go, when to travel and what to do at the destination. Let us help you! We are Martti and Sinikka, a couple who realized our dream when we settled here, in the village of Kilpisjärvi in Lapland.
Destination Kilpisjärvi 69° N & 20° E
Kilpisjärvi with the surrounding Käsivarsi Wilderness is where you’ll find the longest winter in Finland, the deepest snow and the highest mountains – which we call “tunturi” in Finnish, or “fell” in English. This is where you will find the cleanest air and the purest water and the most frequently appearing Aurora Borealis.
Eight seasons, eight reasons
Lapland is best known internationally as a winter wonderland. Arctic Lapland, where Kilpisjärvi is located, is a fantastic winter playground for all tastes. Yet there is more to Kilpisjärvi than winter. We have eight seasons equalling at least as many reasons for visiting Kilpisjärvi.
Kilpisjärvi is the gateway to Norway and Sweden
The dramatic Arctic landscapes of three countries and the rich heritage of many cultures are within easy reach when you choose Kilpisjärvi for your holiday destination.
