Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): experience rural life at Tuula's Reindeer, then get a dose of the wild on Angeli Reindeer Farm, then pause for some serene contemplation at Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church, and finally see the interesting displays at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Inari holiday maker website.

London, UK to Inari is an approximately 14- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time to Eastern European Standard Time, which is usually a 2 hour difference. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from London in January: high temperatures in Inari hover around -11°C and lows are around -20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to drive to Rovaniemi.

Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Sat): take an exotic tour of a safari tour, then don't miss a visit to Lordi's Square, then see Santa Claus Office, and finally don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village. Here are some ideas for day two: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church.

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

Getting from Inari to Rovaniemi by car takes about 4 hours. Other options: do a combination of shuttle, flight, and bus; or take a bus. In January in Rovaniemi, expect temperatures between -10°C during the day and -17°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
