Hello Arctic Summer in Kilpisjärvi, Lapland!
It snowed yesterday here in Kilpisjärvi! An occasional snow flurry in summer is a not so unusual in the Arctic – but for the holiday maker who comes here unprepared it can come as a suprise. It’s good to know that the average daytime temperature in July – which is the warmest month of the year – is +11 C (52 F). Our cool temperatures are perfect for hiking and enjoying our magnificent nature! Bear in mind: “There’s no such a thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing!”
A propos hiking – how would you like to join our Siberian huskies for a scenic hike in the vicinity of our village? Or conquer Mt. Saana and hike to the Three-Country Cairn and across Malla Nature Reserve in the company of an experienced wilderness guide?
