Winter is back – in Kilpisjärvi!

No doubt about it – winter has arrived in Kilpisjärvi!  Thanks to our northern high-altitude location we get to enjoy winter earlier than most places in Lapland, and by now the ground is covered by a 20-cm blanket of snow and the temperature stays below 0 degrees Celsius.  Lake Kilpisjärvi is in the process of forming its permanent solid ice cover, and we expect to launch the winter season on schedule in the beginning of December , if not earlier.  Check out our our winter activities  and book your holiday to Lapland’s winter wonderland!

Meanwhile we observe the signs of winter’s arrival on Autumn Nature Trail,  we get acquainted with the history and culture of our village on a walking tour and chaise the Northern Lights which statistically appear in Kilpisjärvi more often than anywhere else in Lapland – welcome to Discover Kilpisjärvi Off-Season!

Farewell to Fall!

Autumn is slowly turning to winter here in the arctic. We’ve had a gorgeous “Ruska”, the time of autumn colors, when nature celebrates the end of summer and starts preparing for the snow season.  The season for Aurora Borelias is here again – it starts already in August when the nights get dark.  The first snow paid us a brief visit some time ago, only to disappear again – but permanent snow cover is expected by November.

If all goes according to plans, we launch the winter activities in the beginning of December.  In the meantime, check out what Kilpisjärvi is like in the “off-season” in October and November –  you  might find this to be the perfect time to visit the Top of Lapland!  Please send us an e-mail to laplandconnection(at)gmail.com or give us a call and we’ll help you plan your trip.
