Inari

Inari is Finland's largest, most sparsely populated municipality, with four official languages, more than any other in the country. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lemmenjoki National Park and Tuula's Reindeer. Change things up with these side-trips from Inari: Gold Prospector Museum (in Tankavaara) and Hippupuoti Gift Shop (in Saariselka). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church, get a taste of life in the country at Reindeer Farm Petri Mattus, and take in the pleasant sights at Otsamo Fell.
