It's hard to find anywhere else in the world that compares with the wilderness of Inari. Its four sharply contrasting seasons provide unforgettable experiences: the midnight sun of summer, the blazing colours of autumn, the dazzling white snow and ice of winter, and the awakening of nature in spring. Inari is actively growing on the terms of nature. Inari's strength lies in its mighty and magnificent nature that we cherish with all our heart.

With a surface area of more than 17,000km2, Inari is the largest municipality in Finland. Lake Inari accounts for more than half of its 2,000 of lakes and rivers. Nestled between its thousands of lakes and islands are hundreds of majestic fells that shape its landscape.

The attractions of Northern Lapland are based on the culture and nature of the region.
The entire region is a living area of the indigenous Sámi. The Siida Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre in the village of Inari is the most significant place of interest telling of the culture and life of northern peoples.
