This is the dream of many visitors to Kilpisjärvi: to conquer the highest summit of Finland. The duration of this trip is 6 hours and it is organized from March 1 until May 20. Weather and trail conditions allowing we will start in the latter part of February.
Ride across the tundra of Käsivarsi Wilderness
The easiest way to reach the highest peak of Finland in winter is to travel there in the snowmobile passenger sled of an experienced guide. Take a seat, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride! Soon after leaving the village of Kilpisjärvi you’ll be above the tree line and on the tundra of the Käsivarsi Wilderness region. Stops will be made from time to time for viewing, admiring and photographing the spectacular scenery.
The snowmobile trail takes you across the highest tundra region in Finland, approximately 50 km (31 miles) each way. You’ll travel on frozen lakes, along river valleys, uphill and downhill in the ”fell country”, through total wilderness where there are no roads and no inhabitants.

Mt. Halti – also known as Halti Fell – is situated on the Norwegian border and reaches to 1324 meters (4344 ft.) above sea level. If weather conditions are favorable we drive to the summit. The panorama which opens from the mountain top is breathtaking.
