Lake Inari Cruise

Lake Inari Cruise is an easy way to experience the biggest arctic wilderness lake in Northern Lapland. The lake cruise starts from the harbour by the Sámi Museum, SIIDA, and will take you to see the historical Ukko Island.

Lake Inari is the third largest lake in Finland and is home to over 3300 islands. The sacred Ukko Island (or Ukko’s Rock) was historically used as a Sámi sacrificial offering site right up until the 19th century. We will cruise around the island and admire the spectacular Ukko from a short distance.

The Electric-hybrid Catamaran has 120 seats. On board you can buy coffee, tea, wine, beer and small snacks. During the cruise audio guide in English and Finnish.

1pm cruise stops at Pielpavuono on request if weather permits. Please state your wish before the departure. From Pielpavuono there is a marked trail to Pielpajärvi Wilderness Church. The journey back to the village is by walk independently.

Please note that dogs are welcome to join the cruise on front deck or inside in front the catamaran. Catamaran is non-smoking.

Lake Inari Cruise is Green Activities certified by the Green Key ecolabel.
