Autumn Nature Trip with Campfire Picnic in Kilpisjärvi

From 90 €
Duration 3 hours

Join us for a leisurely hike and campfire picnic and explore nature with a local guide around the village of Kilpisjärvi, Arctic Lapland. This trip is carried out in October and November until the ground is covered by permanent snow.

In October the sun is still high and the days can be pleasantly warm, but they can also be cloudy, rainy and windy. The nights are frosty and the first snowfalls cover the ground. The lake starts slowly freezing over. The village is peaceful and a veritable haven for visitors seeking a relaxing break from their urban life.

Autumn turns into early winter in November. Days grow shorter until finally the Polar Night sets in at the end of the month. The sun dips below the horizon, not to rise again until mid-January. Now is the time of the beautiful blue dusk which replaces sunlight around noon hours.

During this excursion you will explore the nature surrounding the village, walking with the help of Nordic poles or snowshoes, depending on weather and trail conditions. A picnic is served and stories are shared around an open fire in the nature.
