Inari

Inari ©
Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. On the 23rd (Mon), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church, then tour or see a show at The Sami Cultural Centre Sajos, and then examine the collection at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take some stellar pictures from Otsamo Fell and then wander the wide-open spaces of Reindeer Farm Petri Mattus.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Inari online trip itinerary planner.

Paris, France to Inari is an approximately 15-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Paris to Inari due to the time zone difference.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to travel to Levi.
