Day in Inari

Siida Museum, Lunch & Lake Inari Cruise

Join us for a guided day in the beautiful village of Inari, which is the cultural heart of the indigenous people of Lapland, the Sámi people. During our day, we’ll familiarize ourselves with the immeasurably valuable Sámi culture and traditional Lappish reindeer herding.

We will visit the well-known, astonishing Sámi museum, “Siida”, where you’ll learn a lot about the interesting history and culture of the area, its indigenous people and the surrounding nature.

We’ll move to harbour where we board a electric-hybrid Catamaran for a cruise to Lake Inari. Lake Inari Cruise is an easy way to experience the biggest arctic wilderness lake in Northern Lapland.

Lake Inari is the third largest lake in Finland and is home to over 3300 islands. The sacred Ukko Island (or Ukko’s Rock) was historically used as a Sámi sacrificial offering site right up until the 19th century. We will cruise around the island and admire the spectacular Ukko from a short distance.

After the cruise, we’ll return to Ivalo, just in time for you to enjoy a relaxing evening.
