This walking holiday in Finnish Lapland, in the quiet Kilpisjärvi village, is guaranteed to be a unique experience. In the village of just over 120 inhabitants, you will quickly know your way around the one street that goes through the village. But who needs roads when you have paths to walk on?
What is a walking holiday anyway?
Walk up the Saana fell, iconic landmark for all Finns. Do a day trip to Malla Strict Nature Reserve where your guide will tell you about atmosphere and climate research done in this remote location. Add a day trip to Norway to see the fjords, and your walking holiday couldn’t be more varied.
In the company of like-minded walkers, five days will pass quickly. The views here are breathtakingly beautiful; within a short walk, we are already above the treeline. So make sure to pack your camera with those boots!
We do the guided walks in the mornings and afternoons. In the evenings, you can take a quiet stroll in the soft light of summer nights, or just sit by the lake and enjoy the silence. The sun sets late, so you have no rush to be back at your cabin.
This guided walking holiday in Finnish Lapland takes you on moderate routes around the region, taking you into real wilderness, yet staying close by to your accommodation. Daily walking distances are between 6-12 km, so moderate fitness level is expected.
