Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Go for a jaunt from Inari to Saariselka to see Urho Kekkonen National Park about 1 hour away. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center, take some stellar pictures from Otsamo Fell, wander the wide-open spaces of Reindeer Farm Petri Mattus, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Juutua Nature Trail.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Inari trip itinerary app.

Paphos, Cyprus to Inari is an approximately 18.5- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Paphos in July, with highs in Inari at 20°C and lows at 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 18th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Rovaniemi.
