Kittila

Kittila ©
Kittilä is a municipality of Finland and a popular holiday resort.It is located in northern Finland north of the Arctic Circle within the Lapland region. Explore hidden gems such as Pakasaivo and Enontekio Church. Escape the urban bustle at Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park and Santa"s Cottage & Pet Farm. Venture out of the city with trips to Jyppyra lookout (in Enontekio) and Levi Huskypark (in Kongas). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Giewont Husky Adventures, take a memorable tour with Tours, experience rural life at Ounaskievari Reindeer Farm, and fly down the slopes at Yllas Ski Resort.

Plan my Kittila trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Tampere to Kittila is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and bus; or drive. Traveling from Tampere in June, expect nights in Kittila to be about the same, around 7°C, while days are a bit cooler, around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can drive to Rovaniemi.
