In the heart of winter, the Polar Night conjures up colours that simply set you at ease. There is no other winter like ours.
When the skies are clear, you can see the northern lights on three out of four nights in Enontekiö. Wear warm clothes, bring a thermos and be prepared for the light show of your life!
Most years, you can start skiing on natural snow in late October. As the snow keeps falling, more tracks will be opened.
You might be standing on two metres of snow. The only signs of life on the undisturbed snow are animal tracks. Snowshoes represent complete freedom to roam in the snowy landscape.
Take on the snowy landscape and head into the quiet wilderness. You might well encounter a reindeer herder on his way to work. If you meet two, we would consider it a traffic jam.
See how the reindeer and their herders live or go for a sleigh ride. In Enontekiö, you can see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
A dog sled is the greatest way to experience the thrill of speed while taking in the snowy landscape and silence of the wilderness.
Would you like to have your own cottage by the fells? Nothing beats coming back to a warm cabin after a long day. Get something cosy or luxurious – it’s your choice.
Accommodation alone can be quite an experience here. You can spend your night in a wilderness hut and listen to the stove’s crackle or just as well admire the northern lights in a warm glass igloo.
Adventure may await, but the friendly staff at our hotels will wait on you. Enjoy the modern luxuries but worry not, as you’ll be on the hiking trails as soon as you’re out the door.
Would you like to test an e-fatbike or gliding snowshoes? Did you forget your skis or didn’t want to haul your pulk? Don’t worry, our rental shops will take care of your every need!
Guided tours give you a chance to safely experience the Arctic while learning more about our unique nature. Our local guides will take you on snowmobile safaris, wilderness ski tours, the best freeride spots – or on a snowshoeing trip with your whole family.
How deep is the snow, are the lakes frozen yet? Where are the best places for aurora hunting or snowshoeing? The Visitor Centres’ Tourist Information will be your best friend when planning outdoor adventures.
