Spring, sun and fun!

The month of March is half gone already!  Believe it or not, we are speedily heading towards the nightless nights. . . But for another month and a half we continue with Snow Time!

The Husky Team led by Mr. Peni and a guest as the musher, in February.

So far this winter we’ve been quite busy,  with guests from all corners of the globe: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, all across Europe, the Middle East, Russia, South Africa, the United States. . . It’s been fun to meet people from so many different countries and cultures who have one thing in common: they arrive in Kilpisjärvi to enjoy our fantastic winter!

The village is enjoying peaceful moments during a cold spell in January.

Winter is now turning to spring here in Kilpisjärvi and that means that our days are long and filled with light, and the cold spells – when the temperature kept hovering around – 30 C / – 22 F – are mostly behind us. Not that the cold weather kept us and our visitors from enjoying the outdoors.  The saying goes that there’s no such a thing as bad and cold weather – only unsuitable clothing.

The spring days are perfect for conquering Mt. Halti – the highest peak of Finland, and the height of the season for these trips is in April and early May.  Lots of cross-country skiers are expected to arrive in Kilpisjärvi to enjoy the sun-filled days on the tundra – and the easiest way to get amidst the most stunning landscapes is to book a snowmobile sledge transfer from us and ski back to the village. 

Our holiday season and winter programs for 2019 – 2020 will be published soon on this website. Meanwhile, feel free to contact us by e-mail laplandconnection(at)gmail.com with your questions. And – it’s still not too late to book your Snow Time for this winter – we are at your service!
