Statistically, the Kilpisjärvi area has more clear night skies and records more Northern Lights activity than any other place in Finland – making it the best place to go starry-eyed. Experts have estimated that if the sky is clear, visitors have more than a 70% chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

Providing the ultimate combination of adventure and comfort, those staying in the new wilderness rooms will be able to enjoy the amazing scenery within a cozy cabin.
