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!
Recent news of Lapland’s winter being cancelled have been greatly exaggerated!
Here in Kilpisjärvi winter has arrived in time for us to launch our winter Safaris & Tours in the beginning of December. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, we are keeping busy with preparations for the new season, especially with Husky Peni and Husky Maya’s offspring who were born in August. Nalle and Nekku are future sleddogs in our husky family.
See you in Kilpisjärvi!
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!
