Start off your visit on the 19th (Thu): take a stroll around The Sami Cultural Centre Sajos, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church, and then examine the collection at Siida. On the next day, go for a walk through Otsamo Fell and then pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church.

Plan my day in Inari using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Inari is an approximately 27-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Malaysia Time to Eastern European Time is minus 6 hours. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December, with highs in Inari at -7°C and lows at -17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel to Levi.
