This lake is very big and, during sub zero temperatures, can be walked on. The forests around provides good hiking, but the actual lake itself is great for a stroll. Quite often, snowmobiles would glide in and given the large surface area, you can see...More

As the lake was frozen we went across on Snow mobiles. The scenery was second to none and our guides were fantastic. Stopped off at a quaint little church and a BBQ in the snow and the food was excellent served with hot coffee and...More

Our guide brought us two nights in a row to a bridge on the Lake said to be a good spot for aurora sighting because of the possibility of reflections on its calm waters. Unfortunately, it was overcast both nights and indeed it even snowed...More

The lake is also called the Sámi sea due to its vastness - 100km accross! We visited in winter when the lake was frozen. Flying to Ukko's Island by snowmobile sled was unforgettable. The view from the island is magical with the sun glistening At...More

the boat tour out to a small island is pleasant but gets a little long with repetitive scenery. Clean and crisp, the outside decks offer a good spot to be. Some coffee can be purchased.

Cruising with Inari III boat in lake Inari is the most boring cruise like ever! It lasted totally 3 hours, mostly due to terribly slow boat, only 6 knots! 20 min. in the destination, just walk up to the hill (frankly speaking, nothing special to...More

It is difficult to put into words just how we felt to stay here albeit for a short while. The lake is simply stunning and to watch the sun go down over it is , well , quite mesmeric. There is also a river boat...More

Lake Inari is beautiful with some fantastic walks in the area. The Lake cruise is also worth doing (22 euros each) but you get a wonderful view of the lake

The lake was frozen of course, to a depth of about 80 centimetres, and so during the day you will see snow mobiles, skiers, sleds, reindeer, and even a few snow surfers. At night tourists congregate in the pub just off the lake, and when...More

Hello, Is it possible to self-tour Lake Inari either by foot or some other method (driving the outskirts) in order to visit both the Wilderness Church and Ukko's Rock? Or is the only way to visit these sites by taking a snowmobile tour? If the latter is accurate, are there any recommendations for tour guides? Thanks, Laura
