Kittila shines in the winter. Cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, dog and reindeer sledding are just some of the activities available. If you're interested in downhill skiing, you'll have to rent a car and make the short drive to Levi. Two National Parks are part of the Kittila municipality and provide year round recreational opportunities. In the summer hiking, canoeing and fishing are popular. Kittila has been home to not one but two Finnish artists of note. Both Einari Junttila and Reidar Sarestoniemi lived in the area and there are museums dedicated to each of them. The Kittila Museum contains buildings and exhibits from the town; the oldest building dates to 1830, as does the wooden church designed by C.L. Engel. An even more famous personage resides in the area. Santa Claus can be found in the nearby village of Rovaniemi 364 days a year (he's busy on December 24). If you've been nice, rent a car and visit him. Questions about driving in Kittila? Our driving information page should provide answers.
