Kilpisjärvi got its first official snowfall on September 25. Not a moment too soon in our opinion! We love winter, our Siberian huskies love winter, and our customers love winter! We are busily preparing for the winter season which will be launched in November, as soon as the weather conditions allow us to do so. Stay tuned!
Our Siberian husky team earned us a place among Top 10 Husky Dog Blogs on the web. Thank you so much Feedspot – this was a big surprise and our team sends you and your panelists the best regards from Lapland!
In addition to getting us international fame, our husky family has kept busy with the addition of two puppies, Nalle and Nekku , who were born on August 10. The little boys are growing fast and will start their sled dog training during the winter months. Check out our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram for photos and videos of our husky family and our life here in the arctic.
Our Safaris & Tours feature a collection of guided activities designed to offer you the best of Lapland’s winter: dog sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoe trekking, ice fishing, picnic around open fire, chasing the northern lights. The village of Kilpisjärvi with its one hundred permanent residents is a one-of-a-kind arctic destination – still small, still off the beaten track, boasting the most amazing landscapes in all Lapland. If you wish to experience winter in Kilpisjärvi, please send us an e-mail with your request or fill the Booking Request Form – we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
“Rostock Rotates” visited us last January and shared with us this video of the Husky Sled Ride which is without doubt our most popular tour. Check it out and enjoy the ride!
One of our eight seasons – that’s right, eight, not four – is late summer. In Finnish we call it “syyskesä” which literally translates to autumnal summer. Days are getting short and evenings turn dark. The first northern lights appear already in August. Daytime weather is cool and at night the air can be chilly, even frosty. It’s blueberry harvest season – this super food of the Finnish nature is now ripe to be picked. Reindeer – Lapland’s native animal – can be seen roaming around the village. The “ruska season” is starting to paint the nature in a feast of autumn colors, and by late September winter will be on its way.
This is a perfect time to visit Kilpisjärvi and enjoy the great outdoors: Conquer the iconic Saana Fell, trek to the Three-Country Cairn, go on a guided fishing trip or biking tour and hike with Siberian huskies in our peaceful, pure nature. . .

We are not exaggerating when we say that Kilpisjärvi enjoys the longest snow season in Lapland! We launched the Winter Safaris & Tours in November and we packed up the snowmobiles, the snowshoes and the dog sled in early May. And what a season it was: visitors from literally around the globe! As in previous years, the top two were Border Safari to the Three-Country Cairn of Finland, Norway and Sweden and the Husky Sled Ride. Heartfelt thank you to all our guests for having chosen the village of Kilpisjärvi and Safaris – The Lapland Connection! Stay tuned, next winter’s Safaris & Tours will be published soon. Meanwhile, plan a trip to Kilpisjärvi’s arctic summer and check out the best offers in the following: Day trip suggestions and Summer Safaris & Tours.
