Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Angry Birds Activity Park and Otsamo Fell. Your inner history buff will appreciate Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church and Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church. There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Lemmenjoki National Park, experience rural life at Tuula's Reindeer, and get a taste of life in the country at Angeli Reindeer Farm.
