Inari Hiking Area

The hiker with backpack standing at a viewing point on top of a tall hill. A lush and summery lake- and forest landscape can be seen from the hill. The sky is cloudy.

In the heartlands of the Sámi people there is plenty to see and do. Lake Inari has thousands of lovely islands, including sacred Ukonsaari. Wooded hills and treeless arctic fells rise around the lake, which is fed by untamed rivers. From the fascinating Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre Siida you can walk or ski through the forest to picturesque old Pielpajärvi Wilderness Church.

Suitability: Suited for visitors of all ages and levels of fitness all year round. The Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre Siida is accessible to all. Part of the Juutua trail is suitable for visitors with mobility difficulties if assisted.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland.
