Inari ©
Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Visiting Lemmenjoki National Park and Angeli Reindeer Farm will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church. Step out of Inari to go to Saariselka and see Angry Birds Activity Park, which is approximately 56 minutes away. There's more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Otsamo Fell and experience rural life at Tuula's Reindeer.
