About the area

Far in the North Inari-Saariselkä

In the far North of Finnish Lapland lies the arctic region of Inari-Saariselkä. The unique northern countryside, national parks, wilderness lakes, crystal-clear rivers and highland fells offer a wealth of opportunities for year-round travel.

In winter, the Northern Lights dance across the sky up to 200 days a year. In summer, the midnight sun shines for two whole months. Here is where you find the genuine Lapland.

Finland’s two largest national parks are located in the Inari-Saariselkä region – The Lemmenjoki National Park and Urho Kekkonen National Park.


How to get here?

Inari-Saariselkä is far away in the North, yet just a few hours from Southern Finland. You can get to Lapland with multiple ways, and often the trip is an experience in itself.
