The unique geography around Kilpisjärvi holds unique potential for freeriding in Finland. Finland’s greatest fells and powder snow are yours to enjoy, from the darkness of winter till the Midnight Sun of spring.
Enontekiö has the longest snow season in Finland. At its best, the wilderness ski season starts in October and goes on until Midsummer. During Polar Night, you can use headlamps and ski under the northern lights. In the spring, there’s nothing to stop you from skiing around the clock.
Taking on the great fells and wilderness does require experience and knowledge of the conditions and snow. All freeriding in the region is foot-powered: there are no ski lifts or marked runs. The best and safest way to start freeriding is to hire an experienced guide. Local companies provide guided trips for freeriders as well as snowmobile transport to the wilderness.
Remember to always check the current travel restrictions on nature reserves and the avalanche forecast.
Avalanche forecast can be checked from the Finnish and Norwegian Meteorological Institutes.
