Heading Into Arctic Winter!

PUPPIES

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!

Summer Holiday – and already missing winter!

A rare “heat wave” is washing over the arctic and here in Kilpisjärvi we’ve been pampered with unusually warm temperatures for a couple of weeks now – +20 C / 68 F is quite warm for us!  The nightless nights have been the source of plenty of sun and light, enough to last us for the long winter ahead.  The sun will set tomorrow, on July 24, for the first time in two months.

We and the huskies are on summer holiday, enjoying every moment  – but already missing winter!  If you, too, are missing winter, check out our guided winter activities “Safaris & Tours”.  And book your Kilpisjärvi winter holiday now!

The Snow Season is officially over!

 

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.  

See you in Kilpisjärvi!
