Nature trip with campfire picnic in summer and in fall

Leisurely nature hike and campfire picnic in Kilpisjärvi

Join us for a leisurely hike and campfire picnic. Explore nature with a local guide and hear the stories of the village and of everyday life in Kilpisjärvi.

The duration of this experience is 3 - 4 hours and it is carried out in fall, until the permanent snow cover arrives in Kilpisjärvi.

Autumn in Kilpisjärvi is not to be missed

In late September and October the sun is still high and the days can be pleasantly warm, but they can also be cloudy, rainy and windy. The nights are frosty and the first snowfalls cover the ground. The lake starts slowly freezing over. The village is peaceful and a genuine haven for visitors seeking a relaxing break from their urban life.

Towards the Polar Night in November

Autumn turns into early winter in November. The days grow quickly shorter until finally the Polar Night, called ”kaamos” in Finnish, sets in at the end of the month. Beautiful blue dusk replaces sunlight around noon hours. The ground is wrapped in a blanket of snow which provides plenty of light, and the lake starts forming its solid ice cover. While the average temperature is just below freezing in October, it's – 7 degrees Celsius in November.

Guided nature trip with campfire picnic

During a guided nature trip you'll hike in the nature surrounding the village, with the help of Nordic poles or snowshoes, depending on the season and the prevailing weather.

A picnic is served and stories are shared around an open fire in the nature.
