Kilpisjärvi’s summer is short, but breathtaking.
The light of the nightless night lasts more than two months in Kilpisjärvi on May 22. – 25.7., when nature wakes up to bloom incredibly fast in the 24-hour light. At Midsummer, you can still ski in the heights of the fell, admire the glory of flowers on the way down and take a dip in the clear waters of the Kilpisjärvi lake from the sauna.
One of the best activities in summer and fall is fishing. Kilpisjärvi lake and the nearby rivers are clean and clear, offering versatile opportunities for fishing. Traditional catches from the Kilpisjärvi area are trout, grayling, and arctic char. The big catches of the Arctic Ocean, halibut and sea trout, are also a day trip away from Kilpisjärvi!
Kilpisjärvi is a destination that everyone who loves fishing or hiking must experience.
Kayaking in the silence of the great fells relaxes and restores. Clear water and the sound of streams invite you to day trips. We rent kayaks and rowboats to our guests, which are waiting at Tundrea’s pier.
The surroundings of Kilpisjärvi are a hiker’s dream. Breathtaking landscapes and beautiful day routes, peaks to conquer in a couple of hours, and longer hiking opportunities beyond the eye’s reach. You can move around on foot or by mountain bike.
