For visitors

The Kilpisjärvi Biological Station offers accommodation and tasty meals for visitors and provides researchers and students with the use of transportation and laboratory facilities.

The station can accommodate up to 70 people, some of whom can be accommodated in charming cottages by the lake. At the end of the day, you can hike to the Saana fell or enjoy refreshments at the nearby Kilpisjärvi Hiking Center.

The station also has a conference room. Students can borrow skis, snowshoes or a bicycle from the station according to the season. For day trips, visitors can prepare a packed lunch in connection with breakfast. The staff are happy to help with any questions you may have.
