Far north in the Arctic Circle lies the town of Inari. It’s one of the best places in Finland to spot the Northern Lights – best seen from a husky ride – as well as visit a reindeer farm, go ice fishing and try snowshoeing.
The small town of Inari is the spiritual home of the Sámi reindeer herders of northern Lapland. Its remote location on the banks of Lapland’s largest lake, Inarijärvi, is the perfect place to discover the ancient culture of the only indigenous people in Europe. It’s still Finland, but being 1,287km (800mi) north of the heady delights of Helsinki, the attractions of Inari are far more low key and embedded within nature.
