Off to Northern Lapland
The city of Ivalo is the ideal starting point to experience a true winter dream in the north of Finland. A dream especially for cross-country skiing fans, as there are several hundred kilometers of well-maintained trails waiting to be discovered in the Inari vacation region. Enjoy breathtaking winter landscapes on your cross-country skis as they are written in the picture book - frozen lakes, snow-covered forests and a wildly romantic atmosphere.
But if you love the beautiful sides of winter, you will find other suitable activities during a trip to Inari. For example, how about a ski hike, a husky sled ride or an Aurora snowmobile safari? And if you just want to enjoy the peace and beauty of nature during your winter vacations in Inari, a walk followed by a sauna is a great option.
