Travel Guide
Akaslompolo showing tranquil scenes, kayaking or canoeing and a river or creek
A well-known winter sports destination, Kittila is an excellent addition to the Leviturnturi (fell slopes) for snowmobiling, as well as hiking through the wilderness in the winter or summer.

Kittila is a municipality composed of more than thirty small villages, whose territory is situated in the well-known ski resort of Levi. In addition to the Levitunturi, you can see Kätkätunturi and Pyhätunturi, both of which sit right next to Levi. Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park is rich in unspoiled nature and has excellent opportunities for hiking and trekking. The Lapland summer, midnight sun and northern lights streaked across the winter skies are already attractions themselves.

In Kittilä, the village closest to Levitunturi, is Sirkka, which has a high concentration of accommodation and sports facilities. Cruise down the slopes of the Levi Ski Centre, located in the village of Sirkka, or one of the other three ski centres. In addition, Levi has the Snow Park, built for those with a love for all sports involving boards, skis and “tricks”. A trip to Kittilä and Levi can also be done without your own car, as the area has excellent and well-served bus connections.

Also, for those arriving in Kittilä, it is also worth visiting Levi, since the south side of the mountain is built on the infinite Activity Park. Climb the adventure park with its versatile tracks, or go take a Gondoli 2000-lift ride. On the flanks of the Levitunturi, there is also an 18-hole golf course and the Levi Bike Park, whose downhill and dirt-tracks attract mountain bike enthusiasts. In Levi, you can rent all the necessary sports equipment, both for summer and winter sports.

A holiday in Kittilä is also nice for spending time hiking or walking. On the slopes of the fell, there are numerous trails from which you can admire the stunning scenery and, at the same time, learn about the area's nature and history. For example, take a look at Rykimäpolku, located in the Kätkätunturior, or Huippupolku, which emerges from the top of Levitunturi. If you want to find out more about the area's history and nature, take a detour to Sami Land, which displays the “Sami way of life” from then and now. In addition to the internal exhibition, there is a large outdoor exhibition area, which houses Europe's only wide range of indigenous culture.

For hiking enthusiasts, it is worth visiting Kittilä’s Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, which is also partly in the Enontekiö, Muonio and Kolari area. This is the third largest national park in Finland, and is perfect for both the whole family and experienced walkers. The area has four long hiking trails, and eighteen nature trails, which provide very lengthy excursions. Starting with the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, you can get both a great and cheap trip to Kittilä.

For outdoor sports enthusiasts, Kittila is an endless treasure trove for a variety of activities. In winter, Kittilä provides 900 kilometres of snowmobile trails. In the summer, you can take canoe trips or paddle on the rapids of the River Ounasjoki from the village up to Sirkka, or feel free to take a swim in the river. Kittilä’s unspoilt nature and clear waters attract wildlife from across the board.

Kittilä is easily accessible by plane to the municipality's own airport, or by train via Rovaniemi or Kolari. Spectacular scenery, good skiing opportunities and efficient services make Lapland’s Kittilä a dream destination.
