Three-Country Cairn

In 1897 a cairn was constructed by Norwegians and Russians (todays Finland), to mark the point at which the boarders converge. Sweden was not involved in the process: Norway and Sweden could not agree upon the establishment of a Boarder Comission, hence the cairn was not bejeweled with any of the three countries emblems.

In 1901 Norway and Sweden came to an agreement regarding the new Boarder Comission.
The cairn was covered in cement, but unfortunately the cementation enclosed only the upper part, and the cairn soon became heavily reduced by weather, wind and ice.

The present cairn was constructed in 1926.

A dog with you?

The dog can be taken on board at your own risk. But it is good to know that when coming back to Kilpisjärvi from Sweden to Finland, from Koltalahti, the dog must also have a valid echinococcoli eradication medication by a veterinarian, the pet passport, chip and valid vaccinations. This is something that should be in order before the trip and which is the owner’s own responsibility.
