Inari ©
Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. Explore hidden gems such as Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort. Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church and Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel will appeal to history buffs. Explore Inari's surroundings by going to Hippupuoti Gift Shop (in Saariselka) and Gold Prospector Museum (in Tankavaara). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Reindeer Farm Petri Mattus.

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Visit Rovaniemi Church and German Soldier s Cemetery for their historical value. Attractions like SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Pilke Science Centre make great kid-friendly stops. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, and have fun at Santa Claus Office.

Plan my Rovaniemi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
