KARIGASNIEMI

The Village of Three Languages

The Karigasniemi village has three languages and cultures; Sámi, Finnish, and Norwegian. Thanks to this mix, Karigasniemi has a rather special ambiance, which can be sensed in the inn. In fact, it has been said that the best night life of the Tenojoki River Valley is found in Karigasniemi, a place to which Norwegians from Karasjoki travel 18 kilometres to party. The border river at Karigasniemi has always brought people together, instead of keeping them apart. The village is located at the confluence of the two rivers; Inarijoki and Tenojoki, which means the surroundings offer great opportunities for wilderness fishing and fly fishing along the smaller rivers. Karigasniemi is an excellent base for trips heading to the Arctic Ocean, the rugged northern Norway landscapes or hiking the surrounding Muotkatunturi and Paistunturi fell wilderness regions, and the Kevo Strict Nature Reserve.
