What are we going to do

Come with me to explore the hidden gems of the Kilpisjärvi region. We'll hike above the treeline into the open tundra-like terrain, which offers great views towards Norway, Sweden and Finland's most iconic fell Saana.

As a local guide in the region and habitual explorer, I have a wide knowledge of the region and less visited places. If you're looking for something away from the crowds, this is the trip for you. You'll learn about the history of the region, the local plants and animals and about day to day life in our small arctic village.

There will be plenty of stops for photographs and there will also be a longer lunch break where you can kick back and enjoy the surroundings. I look forward to showing you around my 'backyard'.

About Gareth - the Doer

I have been exploring and working in the outdoors for the past 20 years. Originally from New Zealand where I worked as an outdoor educator, I have been living in Finland for the past 10 years. I love getting people outdoors on their own little adventures. I don't like to have a set plan for my trips but decide based on the weather, group and how adventurous people want to be. I try to aim for the right level of challenge so you feel like you've been on an adventure, but no so difficult you never want to go outside again!
