Kilpisjärvi and Käsivarsi Wilderness are a treasure chest waiting to be discovered by you

Join Saivaara Cottages guided experiences to explore Kilpisjärvi and Käsivarsi Wilderness
We live and breathe the great outdoors at Saivaara Cottages and we want to share our nature's wonders with you, our guest.
We'll take you fishing on lakes and on the riverside in summer and fall. We'll go hunting for ptarmigan with you in winter. We'll show you the best vantage points for a Northern Lights chase during the Aurora season. We'll organize transfers across the frozen tundra so you can reach the best winter fishing waters, backcountry ski slopes and cross-country trails. We'll conquer Mt. Halti, the highest peak of Finland, with you in spring.
When you book your accommodations, please drop us a few lines and share your interests. We'll be happy to customize a program for you in collaboration with other guided service providers in the village.
