An ideal setting for anyone seeking the peace and quiet of the wilderness, the village of Jeesiöjärvi is located near the majestic mountain fell of Kumputunturi (translates to “Mount Fell’). In winter, there is a snowmobile route leading to the top (581 meters above sea level) and a wilderness cabin at the top of the fell that provides shelter for a packed lunch or snack before you head back.
Location: Roughly 37 km east of the village of Kittilä.
Population: About 45.
Places of interest: The Kumputunturi Fell, the Hautajärvi wilderness cabin and recreation area, and the Chapel of Saint Elia.
