Clean air and good energies guarantee good sleep. The winter sky turns red. The colors of spring are blue and golden tan. Summer is green with small flowers and just a few mosquitoes. Autumn stains nature yellow and red in the fall. Kaamos lasts only two months and is not as dark as thought. A nightless night lasts for two months, so you also have to remember to sleep. The most popular thing to do is the peak of Saana. Hiking, skiing or snowmobiling on the border of the three kingdoms. Several excursion destinations can be reached on foot or by skiing. Photography in all seasons. Fishing by ice fishing, casting and trolling. Norway's great scenery (20km) and the Arctic Ocean (55km). Northern lights can be seen 200 nights a year. Arctic Polar Holiday Village is the newest holiday village in Kilpisjärvi, founded in 2004. The owner’s roots are centuries old in these areas. The holiday village has 20 apartments in four log houses and a Mutteri restaurant. The buildings were completed in 2006-2008 and are self-produced. We are located in the best location on Lake Kilpisjärvi, on the slopes of the Saana fell, more than 500 meters above sea level, along a beautiful and small rippling mountain stream. There are hiking trails, toboggan runs, trails and shops nearby.
The Lapland wilderness offers the most wonderful experiences and activities.

The best time to watch Northern Lights is hours on either side of midnight. Spring winter and early autumn are statistically the most favorable times for the occurrence of northern lights. Spring is also an average low cloud time, so March is the recommended time to wait for the northern lights.
