CLIMB THE HIGHEST PEAKS, ENJOY THE SPARKLIEST SNOW
Visitors to Kilpisjärvi are drawn here by the magnificent scenery or come to pursue their favourite hobby. In the winter, the fells call to ski touring enthusiasts and downhill skiers, who can try heli-skiing or a dog team to get to the powdery snow. This way you can also reach the highest peaks across the border. The climax of a day of winter sports will be bathing in the sauna and swimming in an ice hole. The skiing season here continues until Midsummer.
