Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Step out of the city life by going to Lemmenjoki National Park and Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort. Step off the beaten path and head to Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Otsamo Fell. Get out of town with these interesting Inari side-trips: Hippupuoti Gift Shop (in Saariselka) and Gold Prospector Museum (in Tankavaara). There's more to do: relax in the rural setting at Inari Reindeer Farm and examine the collection at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center.
