UNFORGETTABLE EVENINGS AT KILPISJÄRVI
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 resort to heli-skiing or a dog team to get to the softest snows. The keenest skiers can even crest summits in the neighbouring countries. The climax of a wintery day will be bathing in the sauna and dipping in a hole cut in the ice on the shores of Lake Kilpisjärvi.
In the summer, Kilpisjärvi is a paradise for hikers, fishermen and motorists. For the latter group, we offer such services as washing facilities for motorbikes and, in the evenings, like-minded company around a barbecue on the shores of Lake Kilpisjärvi.
Are you dreaming of climbing the fell Halti? We will take you from peak to peak. Lapland Safaris also serves visitor groups in the Kilpisjärvi area. We will listen to your wishes and tailor a safari package for your group.
