Inari Summer Highlights
Experience Lake Inari and the Midnight sun in the summertime!
Cruise on Lake Inari
This cruise starts from the Inari harbour by the Sámi Museum. You will head out to Lake Inari, which is the third largest lake in Finland and is home to over 3300 islands. The sacred Ukko Island (or Ukko´s Rock) was used as a Sámi sacrificial offering ground right up until the 19th century. At Ukko Island, weather permitting, you will have the chance to explore a little, admire the view from the top and take in the atmosphere of this ancient cultural site. Then will return to Inari along the old post boat waterway. On the way we will pass an old cemetery island where some wooden crosses marking the graves are still standing. The boat seats 120 and has a small cafe on board.
