Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country.

There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel, head outdoors with Lake Inari, and stroll through Juutua Nature Trail.
