Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Visiting Polar Creek and Juutua Nature Trail will get you outdoors.

Venture out of the city with trips to Gold Prospector Museum (in Tankavaara) and Saariselka (Saariselka Reindeer Farm & Angry Birds Activity Park). It doesn't end there: relax in the rural setting at Inari Reindeer Farm and pause for some serene contemplation at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel.
