          Our Lapland is also Your Lapland

          “When you understand what Our Lapland is like, you won’t want to leave.”

          Our calendar is the Torne River
          When does the ice break? Is it already flooding? Is the salmon coming? Is the river already frozen?

          Our clock is the sun
          During the polar night the sun is barely rises, so why not stay in and take it easy. In summer there is light, night and day. So much time and so many nice things to do! Still, let’s take it easy. Have a seat, we’ll have a coffee and a chat.

          Take a moment to feel the rhythm of light and nature.

          Come along!

          The river runs hundreds of kilometres from the Torne Lake in northern Sweden to the far end of the Bay of Bothnia. The area of Original Lapland is vast and the distances may be long, however, the road network and connections cover the area well and getting from place to place is no problem.

The Tundra Experience in Käsivarsi Wilderness Region

The village of Kilpisjärvi is perched on the edge of the vast Käsivarsi Wilderness in Arctic Lapland. Getting to the wilderness is easiest and safest in the company of a professional guide. The panoramic vistas and the tranquility of this remote area create a unique experience.

There are no roads in the wilderness and motorized vehicles are limited to snowmobiles driven by locals and authorized guides. You’ll be comfortably seated in the guide’s snowmobile passenger sled, enjoying the ride and the views as he skillfully steers the vehicle towards the tundra.

Soon after leaving the village behind you ascend above the tree line. The trail leads you across amazing barren landscapes which seem to stretch into infinity. You might spot a reindeer herd on its winter pasture, a dog musher training his team or snowmobilers on a day’s outing.

During the trip you can try your hand at ice fishing and the guide provides the equipment and instruction. If fishing is not your thing, just sit back, enjoy the exotic views and the peaceful atmosphere and take pictures. A picnic lunch is served to you in a wilderness shelter during the day’s outing.
