The Ukonkivi rock is a historical holy site for the Sami people. These holy sites were considered to be the dwelling places of gods, spirits and elves. The supreme god was known as Äijih (Ukko in Finnish), the term referring to the rumble of thunder. Ukonsaari is approximately 30 metres high, 50 metres wide and 100 metres long. There is a daily ferry trip from the village of Inari to Ukonsaari during the summer months.
