Your guide in Kilpisjärvi: Martti Niskanen

Welcome to Safaris & Tours of Kilpisjärvi!

My name is Martti Niskanen and I will be happy to take you out to enjoy the arctic nature in and around Kilpisjärvi.  I’m a wilderness guide with 30 years of working experience.

During the snow season I organize snowmobile excursions – you can sit comfortably in my snowmobile sledge or drive a rental snowmobile with my guidance. I’ll take you snowshoe trekking, ice fishing and for a ride with my Siberian huskies.  The handsome fellow next to me in the photo is Peni, the leader of my husky team.

In summer I organize guided fishing trips, hikes in our magnificent fell country nature trails as well as river rafting down the border river between Finland and Sweden.  In between summer and winter, “off-season” as we call it here, you can join us for an autumn nature trail, a cultural tour around the village and a chase for the northern lights.  Kilpisjärvi is a great place for viewing the Aurora – they start appearing often as early as in August.

You’ll find our summer & autumn tours here, our October – November activities here, and our winter safaris & tours here. complete with descriptions, prices and general booking terms.  For bookings and inquiries, please send us an e-mail to, use the booking forms on the website or call us at +358(0)40 142 6061. We can assist you in English, French, German and Swedish.

See you in Kilpisjärvi!
