Kick off your visit on the 24th (Thu): contemplate the long history of Keimioniemi Fishing Cabins, glide through natural beauty at Torassieppi Reindeer Farm & Cottages, get a taste of local nightlife at Wild Motion Siberian Huskies, then surround yourself with nature on Powerun Adventures, and finally get a taste of the local shopping with Jemes Sport. Keep things going the next day: make a trip to Giewont Husky Adventures and then admire the masterpieces at Sarestoniemi Museum.

Inari

Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Popular historic sites such as Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Reindeer Farm Petri Mattus and Otsamo Fell. Venture out of the city with trips to Gold Prospector Museum (in Tankavaara) and Saariselka (Saariselka Reindeer Farm, Hippupuoti Gift Shop, &more). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church and relax in the rural setting at Inari Reindeer Farm.

Plan my Inari trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
