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!
