Welcome to Kemijärvi, the mountain town! This original and boldly ”retro” mountain town, surrounded by lakes and with a glowing sky, offers amazing amusement and leisure possibilities to travellers, as well as different shopping alternatives throughout the year. As a counter-balance for the busy and accelerated life rhythm, Kemijärvi offers peace and quiet, as well as quality of life. The nature surrounding Kemijärvi is the perfect scenario for fishing, hunting, boating or even for a couple looking for hiking. We are proud of what we are. The unique character and local culture of the region can be seen in the several events organized in the area throughout the year, as well as in the near-by villages, their history and stories. Just about an hour’s drive from Kemijärvi, by the Arctic Circle, lies the legendary Suomu Fell, whose services meet the expectations of even the most demanding travellers.
In Kemijärvi, you can also understand the spirit of the Sky Lights drama series. The series has hooked countless spectators for several years already, by offering a fantasy trip to the limits of the imaginary and real world. Come and experience the Sky Lights and the diverse events of the series in the beautiful scenery of Kemijärvi!
