Climb the highest peaks, enjoy the sparkliest snow.

Visitors to Kilpisjärvi are drawn here by the magnificent scenery or come to pursue their favourite hobby. In the winter, the fells call to ski touring enthusiasts and downhill skiers, who can try heli-skiing or a dog team to get to the powdery snow. This way you can also reach the highest peaks across the border. The climax of a day of winter sports will be bathing in the sauna and swimming in an ice hole. The skiing season here continues until Midsummer.

Whether you are longing for old-time charm or wish to spend your holiday in cosy surroundings, you will find both at Lapland Hotel Kilpis. Our retro inspired hotel offers accommodation ranging from a hostel to welcoming holiday apartments. All types of accommodation are at a distance of no more than 100-300 metres from the hotel building.

Enjoy authentic Lappish delicacies while savouring the views across Lake Kilpisjärvi and the fells of Norway and Sweden in our panoramic restaurant. In addition to a dining and dancing restaurant seating 120, a lobby bar and a pub-style bar that stays open until the small hours are at the disposal of our guests. On Fridays in April, the hotel restaurant puts on retro nights: you can select delicacies from a menu steeped in nostalgia, and a prize will be given for the best retro outfit. Or why not watch a slide show in the pub to catch the atmosphere of years gone by?


What activities would you like to include in your perfect holiday – a ride in a reindeer sleigh, a husky or snowmobile safari, a snowshoe trek with coffee brewed over a campfire, or perhaps a canoe trip? These will be the ingredients for an unforgettable holiday. We will bring to you a piece of choicest Lapland with unbelievable safari experiences.
