Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Inari Reindeer Farm. Explore Inari's surroundings by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Ivalo), Gold Prospector Museum (in Tankavaara) and Saariselka (Urho Kekkonen National Park & Angry Birds Activity Park). There's much more to do: trek along Juutua Nature Trail, head outdoors with Lake Inari, and explore the venue of The Sami Cultural Centre Sajos.
