My favourite Lapland spot for peace!
Jan 2021 • Solo
Kiilopää is run by Suomen Latu (The Finnish society for Outdoors activities), so it is perfect place to come and enjoy the Lapland wildlife and wild nature. It is right next to The UKK Nature Park, so location is excellent for hiking and Winter activities like skiing. They have Also The best smoke sauna and 'winter spa'= ice swimming place to enjoy after a great day Outdoors. The Vibe here is very down to earth, so easy to calm down after a hectic City Life

Go for midnight sun trails
Jul 2020 • Solo
Great outdoors in the midnight sun. Suomen Latu is a perfect base for day hikes, runs and drives on the trails of Saariselkä. Nice service and prices for summer season. While leaving I was already asking myself: when next?

Nice hike with amazing views
Jul 2019 • Couples
It is an about 1 h 20 min hike in total to and back from Kiilopää peak. An easy route with lots of places to sit down, catch your breath and enjoy the view. Amazing scenery from the top.

Smoke sauna and ice swimming!
Apr 2019 • Couples
Just went here for sauna and bath.
They have a great smoke sauna, also normal ones. But the thing that makes this a truly awesome experience is that you can take an ice bath right outside the saunas!
Which I did not!! The others that were with me did, all cred to them. And of course the Finnish, just went in and out of it over and over.

The only bad thing I can report from this place, is that it's very crowded, at least it was when we were there. The rooms to change clothes in are very tiny, and you have to sit almost on top of others. I also couldn't see anywhere to lock my belongings in. So you kinda have to trust everyone else to not steal.

They also do lots of other stuff here. Seems like cross country skiing here is great as the tracks start at hotel door. And they serve food and have rooms.
Would love to come here and stay some other time.

Definitely worth the hike up for the views
Apr 2019 • Friends
When in the area, it makes sense to walk to the top of the fell to get a view of the whole area. The view is probably as good, if not better than the view from the Saariselka ski resort.

Ice pool plunge is once in a life time experience
Mar 2019 • Family
I visited with group of 7 just for the Smoke Sauna and Ice pool plunge. I stayed at a different hotel, however, found this to be the most economic option for the MUST experience. I found it a bit crowded perhaps since they accommodate guests from outside just for the activity. Nonetheless the Ice pool plunge experience was unforgettable.

Mar 2019 • Solo
I booked a room on the internet, i choosed 2nights and then they searched the cost and then i paied all of that but i couldnt notice that i wasnt 2nighs. it was just a one night. and also i made a mistake i choosed a wrong room . i meant a room not cattage(expensive) so i sent an email if i can change the on friday but they didnt answered it maybe it's not on service time or something so i had to go there and then asked to change the room from cattage to room cause i dont need 4 beds. i''m alone. they said it's possible but i cant get back my money. who wanna change??? and it's really uncomfortable their attitude or somethin. if you want sking or somthing you should go , but you can stay another place it's not that far. there is no activities for northern lights. it's pretty sucks. i orderd beer but she gave it that comes before for other people, and half beer and half bublle. you can see the picture.

Lovely stay again
Feb 2019 • Couples
Beautiful spot in the wilderness.
We had the appartment for two. It had all conviences that you will need for the week. We stayed for 10 days.
The appartments are at the end off the park, which is quite a walk but doable.
The appartment is equiped with a sauna ...we loved it!
A lot of hiking trails close by and lovely activities are offered. The restaurant has good cafe food nice burgers and good pizza’s.
Recommend staying here in the quiet surroundings.

Honeymooners into the wilderness of Lapland
Jan 2018 • Couples
Our honeymoon started at the Kiilopää Fell Centre. We are enthusiastic about the location and the accommodation: the cottage was simple perfect, with our own sauna and a fireplace.
Dinners were not always wonderful, except the salmon: absolutely gorgeous.

Smoked sauna is so much fun!
Dec 2016 • Friends
We did not stay at the fell center, took a taxi to get there around noon. The reception desk staff was super nice and helpful. They had a storage room for bags while we were doingcsports and sauna

We went to the sauna right around 3pm. Smoked sauna in the back, flanked by changing rooms for men and women. It was much nice between 3-4pm without many people, the ice pool area was very nice, orderly, and people were very friendly, screaming and laughing together

By the time we made it back to the reception to return towel and pick up bag, the line was really long

So the sauna and ice pool is definitely fun fun fun! But do get there early to rent the towel and buy ticket, dip into the pool early before the crowd come
