Last week we went on a trip with Kilpissafarit to the border of three countries. Reservation was made online and communication was flawless. We were two families (4 adults and 5 children) and although there was a tour earlier that day, they gave us an other hour so we would be on our own and not part of a larger group. We were well equipped, given good information & safety instructions. We enjoyed every minute of it! Beautiful landscapes, really nice guide who told us a lot of interesting things and took his time, great berry juice & cakes...Would absolutely recommend it!

We did a snow mobile ride over the lake, to the border of Finland, Norway and Sweden and back. It was the two of us and a guide, and we totally enjoyed it. The guide was very good and friendly.
Everything was organised well and the price was clear from the start. But after all, 358 euros for two snow mobiles, less than three hours may be a bit much.

We went out for the border of three countries snowmobiling tour when it was about -24 Celsius. The staff ensured everyone had the proper gear and provided an enclosed sleigh for younger children. Safety is their number one priority.

The outing was fantastic despite the frigid temperatures. The color of the little daylight we had reflecting off the ice and snow was amazing! We stopped along the way to enjoy the scenery as well as to move around a bit to warm up. When we reached our destination at the three borders marker, the guides provided everyone with hot coffee or tea and a small piece of cake.

I highly recommend Kilpissafarit day tours. Be sure to book in advance during the busy seasons. Communication at booking and throughout the adventure is excellent.

We spent 3 days with pre-booked tours from Kilpssafarit. Jussi took us out to kit us up for the -34C arctic conditions and we were absolutely impressed by the professionalism, quality of the kit (all seemed new and fitted really well even though I am short, S-M and my partner is an XXL). We also enjoyed talking to Jussi and hearing about his life and family and business. Unfortunately the low temperature ruled out our two snowmobile trips (dangerous risk of frost bite) but Jussi took us in his land cruiser high above the lake to watch northern lights. Actually the lights were so clear in the town and from our cabin this was just an added bonus. He even knew how to use my new Panasonic camera better then me! Wew had another trip with Kilpissafarit to visit a reindeer farmer while he was feeding - again we had to do this by car (-34C) and Hanu, Jussi's dad, took us. He was also really charming, interesting and very helpful. He originally started the business and Jussi has joined him.

I really recommend booking with them and also asking their advise. I plan to return some day (hopefully in -20 rather than -30C)!!
