This is the dream of many visitors to Kilpisjärvi: to conquer the Top of Lapland! The snowmobile trail takes you across the highest tundra tundra region in Finland, approximately 50 km each way. You’ll travel on frozen lakes, along river valleys, uphill and downhill in the “fell country”, through total wilderness where there are no roads and no inhabitants.
The easiest way to reach the highest peak of Finland in winter is to travel there in the snowmobile sledge of an experienced guide. take a seat, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride! Soon after leaving the village of Kilpisjärvi you’ll be above the tree line and on the tundra of Käsivarsi Wilderness. stops will be made from time to time for viewing, admiring and photographing the spectacular scenery.
Halti Fell is situated on the Norwegian border and reaches to 1324 meters above sea level. If weather conditions are favorable we drive to the summit, and should it be clear, the Arctic Ocean shoreline may be seen. During the excursion a picnic lunch will be served to you by your guide in a wilderness hut.
This excursion is available from the middle of February to early May in 2019.
