The landscape in Enontekiö is distinguished by its spectacular open and clear spaces, which you can only experience in the treeless wilderness. Once you cross into Enontekiö, the pines and spruce trees disappear, and the kingdom of the low-growing mountain birch begins.
The highest fells of Finland are located in Enontekiö, of which the most in area of Kilpisjärvi. The most popular ones of these are Saana and Halti. The spectacular views cannot be described by words, and even a picture cannot deliver the feeling that the view from the top of the fell gives. You just have to experience it.
During this seven-day program we want you to experience pure Lappish authenticity, the Sámi culture, reindeer herding traditions, snowmobiling, and wonders of mother Nature from extremely cold winter nights with Northern Lights dancing on the skies.
