Why Travel to Inari?

There are a lot of reasons why travelers put amazing Finland on their travel bucket list. Some come for its luxurious ski resorts. Some are eager to go hunting one of the most remarkable natural phenomena, the spectacular Aurora Borealis. Quite a few people choose this incrediblу country for their winter vacation because of its most magical region, Lapland. And it's hardly a surprise, can you think of any other place that can get you into the holiday spirit faster than the motherland of Santa Claus himself? And, of course, among the most exciting reasons to travel to Finland is the unique culture of the indigenous inhabitants of the region, Sami people. And there is no better place to learn the history of Sami as well as explore their fascinating traditions than a small village of Inari, the heart of Sami culture.

Carefully and proudly preserving their national identity, Sami people are more than happy to help anyone interested in exploring their remarkable cultural ad historical heritage. For this purpose, they built Sajos, an educative center dedicated to spreading the knowledge about the Sami's legacy. Inside, you can find a lot of beautiful examples of Sami national attributes as well as plenty of opportunities to learn through exciting interactive experiences.

Another must-visit place during your Inari tour is the Siida Nature Center, also known as the Sami Museum. It invites you to have a look at what life was like for Sami people hundreds of years ago, as it houses a vast and fascinating collection of original artifacts. While you are there, make sure to stop by the ones that tell you the life's story of a reindeer herder, some of the museum's most treasured exhibits.

When you feel like you've quenched your thirst for Sami knowledge, you can continue your Inari vacation by exploring the crystal-clear Inari Lake, one of the most breathtaking places in Finland. Don't deprive yourself of the pleasure to take a long walk along its shores, admiring the one-of-a-kind views and enjoying the rich head-spinning smell of firs. If you are a fan of fishing, feel free to try your skills (and luck) in the waters of the Inari Lake, rich on trout, salmon, and pike.
