beyond compare: on a fine day, you may even be able to see the fell highlands beyond the Russian border that are located up to 30 kilometres away. You travel through changing landscapes from treeless felltops to wooded valleys, on top of frozen rivers and lakes. The six-hour safari includes coffee breaks and a lunch, which is served in a forest cabin on the shores of a frozen lake. During the same trip, you can also try some ice fishing, making a campfire, or snowshoe hiking in deep snow.

In addition to its northern location, Lake Inarinjärvi differs from Finland’s other great lakes due to its wilderness qualities. There is no permanent housing on any of the islands. Nellim is a natural departure dock for many who are travelling to the eastern side of the lake. Boat docks and boat launching spots can also be found in Nanguniemi, Veskoniemi, Inari parish village, and Kotalahti in Partakko. A number of ice fishers take the route via Nitsijärvi. Right through to the present day, Lake Inarinjärvi has remained an Eldorado for hikers and people who

gather food from nature. Metsähallitus manages the region and has built boating support points and jetties for the most popular camping places. Metsähallitus also services and maintains the wilderness cabins around the lake. Using these measures, the intention is to concentrate the travel of tourists and to save the beautiful, rugged, yet very vulnerable nature. For people who value peace and quiet, Lake Inarinjärvi is a place visited again and again. It is a place where the fast pace of modern, everyday life does not reach. It is a place where you can experience the nature of the wilderness at its best – rugged, yet handsome. It is a place where hikers can begin to understand how small they really are in the huge cycle of nature. Seppo Saraspää

Northern cultural landscape In Inari and Northern Lapland, the landscape holds a history of life and culture without any large visible or spectacular monuments. The traces left by humans have blended into the environment and have never formed big obstacles for the natural course of nature. People have themselves lived to the rhythm of nature in summer and winter grounds, yet respecting nature, from which they have received their livelihood. Despite their natural way of living, the peoples of the north have not lived in isolation from the rest of the world. Their living environment has been crisscrossed with route of travel and trade, and these have been used by tradespeople, clergymen, civil servants and explorers alike. Today’s visitors explore northern culture in a different way: in constructed sites, exhibitions and events, guided excursions and tours. The course of the year has a large variety of excellent choices for cultural tourists. These are events to which the locals also come to meet one another and to enjoy the performances. At the same time, tourists have the opportunity to get to know the locals and the various sides of culture.

The cultural year begins in January with Skabmagovilla – the indigenous film festival in Inari. During the winter, the Reindeer Cup ends with the Inari Reindeer Championship Race in late March. The Annunciation and Easter are festive times for early spring, with a whole range of traditional events all over Northern Lapland. The Ijahis Idjaevent arranged in mid-August is a showcase of Sámi music and northern ethnomusic, with the great venue of the soon completed Sajos Sámi Culture Centre Auditorium. November sees a gathering of nature photographers and nature enthusiasts in the Camera Borealis Sàmi Museum and the Northern Lapland Nature Centre premises. Kaamos Jazz, on the other hand, sees concert venues from Tankavaara to Saariselkä fill with Jazz lovers. The cultural folk come from all over to swing to these events – from north and south, east and west. Irja Jefremoff
