Day 2 | Sámi Culture and Hiking the Northern Lights
Inari village is the centre of Sámi culture in Finland. The best introduction to the history of the Sámi people and their way of life is by visiting the fascinating Sámi Museum and Nature Centre Siida. The museum has exhibitions on reindeer herding, Sámi handicrafts, Sámi traditions and arctic nature. After the museum visit you can walk along the nature paths surrounding Inari village. The colours of Autumn are at their best in the month of September and the nearby trails offer a variety of charming views.
In the evening you will meet your guide who will take you on an easy walk to go in the search of the dancing auroras. Our guide will walk with you through the quiet darkness to a location perfect for observing those legendary lights. Our guide will tell you about the surrounding nature. Should you get cold, a sip of hot juice with a picnic snack by the blazing campfire will quickly warm you up.
Day 3 | Visit to a Reindeer Farm & Northern Lights Cruise on Lake Inari
In the afternoon we will take you to a local reindeer herder who will introduce you to her small herd. You will be able to pet and feed these friendly creatures, while your hostess tells you about her life with the reindeer. In the warmth of the house, you will discover how traditional Sámi fur boots are made from reindeer hide and hear a personal and authentic account of what life is really like in the far north.
In the late evening after your dinner, you will board on a cruise on the mythical Lake Inari. If the sky stays clear you will have the best possibilities in experiencing the Auroras in a unique place where there is no light pollution and a clear view of the sky. Even the stars feel closer when there is only the wilderness lake surrounding you.
