If you are looking for a holiday destination off the beaten path in Lapland, you've come to the right place! Welcome to Kilpisjärvi, a tiny village in the remote northwestern corner of Arctic Lapland in Finland and welcome to Guesthouse Haltinmaa.
Kilpisjärvi is located in a unique Arctic setting. It is surrounded by the highest peaks of Finnish Lapland and cradles in the lap of the rugged Scandinavian mountain range. It is bordered by a deep clear-water lake on one side and a vast uninhabited wilderness on the other. It is safe to say that Kilpisjärvi is unlike any other holiday destination in Lapland. Whichever of the eight Arctic seasons you choose for your visit, Kilpisjärvi is bound to leave you wanting for more.
Guesthouse Haltinmaa is a family-owned business in the heart of Kilpisjärvi. It's a delightful base for your holiday, steps away from the services in the village and on the threshold to nature's treasures. Cozy and affordable fully-equipped semi-detached cottages are ideal for individuals, families and small groups, and comfortable hostel rooms are perfect for budget-minded travelers.
Guesthouse Haltinmaa is located on the Northern Lights Route which connects the Baltic Sea to the Arctic Ocean across three countries and six cultures. The nearest airports are in Tromso in Norway and in Kittilä in Finland. A daily bus connection connects Kilpisjärvi to Rovaniemi, the Capital of Lapland, and a seasonal bus connection to Tromso, the Paris of the North.
