Our Story

Our story started in August 1991 when we, Martti and Sinikka Niskanen, founded an activity outfitter in Sea-Lapland. Martti, a native Laplander, and Sinikka, originally from the south of Finland, both travel business professionals with extensive experience, had found a common tune, in both personal and in business life. Later that same year, in November, just when the northwestern corner of Finnish Lapland was wrapped in the soft colors of the Polar Night, we made our first trip together to Kilpisjärvi – and it was love at first sight. Ever since that autumn we took every opportunity to visit Kilpisjärvi – with or without customers – until we finally settled here permanently in the spring of 2006.

Since then we have designed and delivered travel experiences in Kilpisjärvi to guests coming from all corners of the globe, during the eight seasons of our arctic year. We are very fortunate to live here in Finnish Lapland’s only mountain village, at the remote corner of the land where the three nations and cultures come together. We hope to share the magnificence of our nature, which is part of our daily life, with you.

Welcome to experience Kilpisjärvi and our arctic life with us!
