This adventure begins from Kilpisjärvi from where we have a short transport to the starting place of our hike. This hike has somewhat challenging beginning since we need to hike upwards for approximately 7 km to reach the beautiful open fell highlands. We have a lunch on the way and breaks as much as needed to have snacks, take photos and listen to the surrounding silence of the pristine nature. Later we arrive to a picturesque mountain lake where we build our camp. There is also an open hut to be used for service if needed. We can fish by the lake and even though we are not real fishing guides we can help you to get started with fishing permits etc. In the evening we can make a fire and eat a dinner together while sharing stories from the arctic. The next morning after the breakfast we start heading back towards the civilization, having lunch on away and other breaks as needed.
With a guide you can learn about the arctic nature, it’s animals and flora, climate and how it is changing. You will hear about life in the region, both today and in the past. Our guides live in the area all year around, so they know these routes and terrains as their backyard. If you want, your guide can teach you some basics of map reading, fire making and other basic survival skills. You can take part in everything on this trip.
