Enontekiö Vacation Packages
Discover lovely churches, superb food and miles of dense forest in Enontekiö. Tackle this wild landscape on skis or learn about the nomadic adventurers who have been exploring this region for years.
The main place of interest here is Hetta in the southern part of the municipality. Presiding on the north bank of Lake Ounasjärvi, the region has a dramatic sparseness. Note that the names of the village and district are used interchangeably on road signs and by the locals.
Take a stroll near the icy waters of the lake on your way to Enontekiö Church in the middle of town. This structure was consecrated in 1952. Over the years, the church has collected an assortment of attractive relics for display inside. See one of the most impressive items, the majestic altar mosaic. Don’t miss the death mask of Martin Luther and the baptismal table that is more than 500 years old.
For snowy adventure, put on your skis and hit the slopes of the village’s own snow resort. The slopes are gentle, with drops that are generally shorter than 330 feet (100 meters), making them ideal for beginners. Surface lifts will carry you back to the top. A ski school offers lessons and equipment rental.
To discover more about the people who live in this harsh Arctic climate, head east to the Fell Lapland Nature Centre. Exhibits here focus on the Sámi people who have lived in the region for hundreds of years. Inspect a selection of historic artifacts along with stunning photos and wood sculptures.
Stay at one of several family-run hotels operating in Hetta. After a day in the cold, come back to your guesthouse to enjoy sumptuous food in front of a log fire. Enontekiö has a small airport. However, most people drive east from Sweden or Norway.
Explore the wilderness land of Enontekiö that remains inhabited by a small population of hugely hospitable people.
