Järvi is a Finnish word, which means lake. During May, Kilpisjärvi (the lake) has had a frozen surface. This breaks up during June. However, at the time of the site inspection visit, it was still a solid sheet of ice, with occasional people skiing, or even riding snowmobiles, over the white expanse.
The photograph shows the view of our accommodation, with Pikku Malla in the right-hand background. The lake surface is visible through the still-bare trees.
