Skiing & Ski touring
From March until mid-May are the skiing conditions in Kilpisjärvi at their the best. There are about 40 kilometers of tracks suitable for beginners to more advanced skiers. Ski touring is just as popular as skiing on the tracks. Differences between normal skiing and ski touring are the equipment and usually ski touring is done outside the tracks. Kilpisjärvi area is one of the best places in the world for ski touring in the spring time because of the great snow conditions, sunshiny days and surrealy beautiful landscapes. If you are interested in longer ski tours you should look into organised ski tours to Halti, check out for example AdventurebyDesign.fi or WildHikesFinland.com. These ski tours require a good physical condition and are about one week long. Great way to just to get to know the sport is to participate on our guided ski tours (duration 4-6 hours) running six days a week on week numbers 14-17. Check out the pricelist for our equipment rental from here.
For beginners the best choice is to take part on a guided snowmobile safari- this way you can enjoy the speedy ride safely and go and visit for example Halti or the Three Nations' Border Point. On a snowmobile you will get a glimpse of how big and desolate our arctic wilderness area actually is! We can help you to book your snowmobile safari or you can contact Kilpissafaris at Kilpissafarit.fi.
