Mt. Saana reflecing the first rays of sunlight after the termination of the Polar Night

The period called the Polar Night enters Kilpisjärvi at the end of November and leaves again in the middle of January. During this time, which we in Finnish call “kaamos”, the sun does not rise above the horizon. The midday hours are wrapped in soft hues of blue light and the sky line is often blazing with various shades of orange. If you haven’t experienced the Polar Night, add it on your bucket list and start planning a trip to Kilpisjärvi next December!

We want to thank all our clients and partners for the past year and wish you Happy New Year!

Mt. Saana, the “home rock” which dominates the landscape in Kilpisjärvi

Here we are, once again surrounded by the beauty of the Polar Night! The sun set on November 30 and will stay below the horizon until the next sunrise on January 12. This photo of Mt. Saana, our “home rock” here in the village of Kilpisjärvi, was taken today in early afternoon. As you can see, it’s not totally dark here – on the contrary, at midday the landscape is wrapped in fascinating pastel colors. Kilpisjärvi beckons more and more travelers with frequent displays of the Aurora Borealis, and we offer tours in search of what is probably Planet Earth’s most spectacular light show.

Our most sought-after daytime tours are the Husky Sled Ride and The Border Safari to the Three-Country Cairn. During the Husky Sled Ride you’ll learn to be a “musher” of our team of Siberian husky dogs, and when you book the Border Safari you can choose either a seat in the snowmobile passenger sled or a snowmobile driving tour.

Lake Kilpisjärvi is frozen solid now and allowing us to take visitors on a snowmobile safari to the Three-Country Cairn.

Have you checked out our Instagram?  You’ll find it in the lower left corner of this page.  Have a look at the video where Husky Puppies Nalle and Nekku, 4 months old yesterday, are training to be future sleddogs, by running on the side of our adult husky team.
