The northern lights and the magical night sky

If in search for Aurora Borealis, Kilpisjärvi is a must destination. Statistically, Kilpisjärvi area has clear night skies and northern lights more often than any other place in Finland. You can admire the night sky in complete silence and with minimal manmade light pollution on a tundra lake surrounded by snowy fells. We recommend snowmobiling during the safari.


There is also a northern light camera located in the Kilpissafarit office. This camera takes images of the whole sky and uploads them to our webcams page every minute during the dark time of the day for you to see what is going on in the sky. If you want to see the full glory of the whole night, we have uploaded videos of some Kilpisjärvi night skies to Kilpissafarit Youtube Channel — Do have a look what could be waiting for you!


Kilpissafarit, established in 1995, is a Kilpisjärvi-based outdoor activity company. Safari House is totally renewed in 2018. All bathrooms are renovated and the facilities of the Safari House are also suitable for customers with reduced mobility. We provide thermal clothing for guests of all sizes and ages. Bring your own eyewear, beanie, several layers of warm clothing to wear under our safari overalls.


We in Kilpissafarit rent snowmobiles and other trekking gears needed in the Kilpisjärvi area. We organize tours and safaris for example to Halti, the highest peak of Finland, and to the other locations in the wilderness area of Kilpisjärvi. The trips are organized during both summer and winter seasons. With us you have a chance to fish in the best fishing waters of Kilpisjärvi wilderness area. Kilpissafarit also have a rentable fishing camp in Luohtojärvi, which is one of the best fishing lakes in the area to catch arctic char.


Kilpissafarit is established by Hannu Rauhala, who was working as a border guard in Kilpisjärvi since 1973. Nowadays Kilpissafarit is run by his children, Johanna Rauhala-Siivonen and Jussi Rauhala. In addition to Hannu, Johanna, and Jussi, Kilpissafarit have several local guides, who know the area and the quickly changing conditions extremely well.
