The Capital of Sámi Culture

The parish village of Inari is the centre for Finland’s Sámi culture. Fed by the water of dozens of fell highlands, flowing into the western side of Lake Inarijärvi, is the so called mother of all rivers, the Juutuanjoki River, from which evidence of settlements have been found dating back over 8,000 years. It is in this district where you will find the Siida Sámi Museum and Nature Centre, which is a great place to start your exploration of Sámi culture and the nature of the region. In the Inari surroundings, the Sámi traditions thrive and blossom with handicrafts and reindeer husbandry. The mystical Sámi Ocean, Lake Inarijärvi, opens up in front of you in the village. Only a few of the thousands of islands lying in the pure water of the great lake have been named.  Nevertheless, many islands, such as the old sacrificial island and the popular Ukonsaari Island, hold fascinating stories from days gone by.
