IVALO

Central Village of Sámiland

Often called the Golden River, the Ivalojoki River flows into the village of Ivalo, which is the commercial, administrative and transport centre of the Inari Municipality. Ivalo Airport is located 10 kilometres south of the village. Ivalo is located along the no. 4 main road and at the junction of the Raja-Jooseppi road leading to Murmansk, Russia. The village has daily bus connections for many destinations. For those touring Sámiland, Ivalo is an excellent place to get all your supplies, licences and food before heading beyond the road network. There are also plenty of opportunities for experiencing husky dogs in the village surroundings. The Ivalojoki River that flows through the village, is not only a legendary river for the gold it holds, but also a wilderness river, renowned for its trout and grayling. With its occasional white water sections, the river is outstanding for rubber boat rafting or canoeing.
