  • I am out during my stay in Inari from the Centre ran off to this beautifully renovated church. A route is approximately 7 km long by Inari or the Sami Museum. You can also drive to a parking lot and hike from there a simple, but very nice hiking distance of 4.5 km to the Church. (simply refers to the slopes, it's more or less a wilderness path). Near the church there is also a refuge where you can break.

  • The 18th century. wooden church of Sami. surrounded by wilderness. The handle is only possible on foot, with one route Is approximately 5 km away. Beautiful, well marked route, but the trail pretty exhaustive due to the constantly occurring tree roots. All compensates for tranquility, beautiful forest and views. You might want to choose.

  • Beautiful church hidden in the woods - well worth the hike! Bring some matches for the fire stop halfway, and next to the church.
  • The walk and landscape is what makes it worth going to this church, which by the way is in very good condition, is picturesque and traditional, all in wood. Upon arrival we are on the shores of the Lake with a small grill to make fire, a cabin where there are tea and coffee powder and a small kitchen and also other cottage with a sauna - although it is not very good state - also there are bathrooms. I did the journey in summer, on a sunny day and it was perfect except for the abundance of mosquitoes and other flying insects that can be very annoying. I got to the Lake. in the Church the windows can be opened so that light from the outside and then close them when you remove. I went up to the Bell Tower and rang the Bell.

  • Beautiful hiking trail through the forest and along the water. Halfway there is a Grillplatzt. The trail passes through several Rentiergehäge, with narrow locks so that no animal takes off. The Church itself is very impressive and completely from Holt.

  • Route of more than an hour and a half. The way is plain but complicated since it is filled with roots, rocks and mud. Half way there is an area of fires to get some sausages. Curious path that is worthwhile where at the end you will find this old church.
