Summer Memories

Arctic summer is short and beautiful beyond description.   Now we are eagerly waiting for “ruska”, nature’s autumn color festival.  It’s different every year and there is no way of knowing how flamboyant the colors turn out to be.    One thing is for sure, though:  every year it attracts lots of visitors here to Kilpisjärvi, mostly Finns but in recent years more and more from foreign countries.  We’ll take them hiking to Malla Nature Reserve, to visit the Three-Country Cairn and to conquer Mt. Saana.  More information about these popular day trips can be  found here.

Martti with guest conquering Halti Fell
Halti is the highest peak in Finland, and conquering the summit is the dream of many visitors.
Sinikka with Husky Peni
Huskies enjoy summer, too! Daily walks, kick-bike runs and swimming are their favorite summer hobbies.

Guided fishing trips, river rafting and terrain biking trips will be carried out until late September.  Check them out here:  Safaris & Tours in Kilpisjärvi Summer & Autumn 2017

See you in Kilpisjärvi!
