Welcome to Winter and Goodbye to Polar Night!
The winter season is in full swing now! The Polar Night officially ended on January 11, but so far we’ve only seen an occasional glimpse of the sun while she’s been hiding behind the Swedish mountain range and we’ve also had a lot of snowfall recently. The snow depth exceeds one meter – plenty for all sorts of winter fun: snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoe trekking and dog sledding. The days are getting longer at a very fast pace – now it’s about 4 hours and 30 minutes from sunrise to sunset plus a lengthy twilight period before and after.
For current news and lots of photos – quite breathtaking shots of Aurora Borealis included – check out the facebook pages of Kilpisjärvi Village and of Destination Enontekiö. Cross-country skiers might want to get familiar with the site of Käsivarsi WIlderness Area.
And we are just an e-mail or a phone call away for advice and bookings. See you in Kilpisjärvi!
