Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A great look into the life of a Sami Reindeer farmer. Got to feed the reindeer and learn all about their life. Very pleasant outing!

    Wonderful informative experience!
    Tuula is a great host and taught us so much about the Sami way of life today!
    We also learnt about the history of the Inari Sami from a personal perspective.
    It wasn’t just a visit to see the Reindeer, it was so much more.. we enjoyed feeding the Reindeer which were all well cared for.. Tuula spoke great English and was very knowledgeable, she was also a realist. She answered all of our questions.. it’s nice to be able to help support a local business that was totally non commercial

    This remote chapel is a wonder. It is as though time stopped in 1895, and still in use we were told, but only for certain holidays and occasions.

    We started our hike from Tradition Hotel Kultahovi in Inari. We followed Juutua Trail (Juutuan polku) to Jäniskoski Rapids. After the suspension bridge we chose a separate trail to Otsamo Fell. The trail is marked well with signposts and red wooden poles. You don't need a map if you stay on the trail. The distance from Tradition Hotel Kultahovi to Fell Otsamo is about 9 kilometers and it takes 3-4 hours. So there and back it takes about 6-8 hours.

    There aren't any services on the route, except for some campfire sites. On Otsamo Fell you find a free day hut and a dry toilet (take your own toilet papers with you). Going uphill the trail is quite deep. So it is a good idea to have hiking boots with good ankle support. You don't need wellies (rubber boots) if the weather isn't very rainy. There may be some mosquitoes in the forest (especially in July and August) but usually you don't see mosquitoes on the fell. Because of mosquitoes it isn't a good idea to wear shorts and a short sleeve t-shirt. I recommend wearing long sleeve clothes and a hat. Remember to take enough water or other beverages with you.

    Hiking to Otsamo Fell is a bit challenging but absolutely worth the effort. The scenery is fabulous. It is very relaxing to enjoy views and silence on the fell.

    If you don't want to hike 18 kilometers, you can walk to Otsamo Fell from another side. First drive to Rovajärvi parking place. From there the trail to Otsamo Fell is about 2.6 kilometers in one direction.

    Visited this church on the way to see some reindeer. A rustic wooden building fashioned and decorated in the orthodox style. The internal design is simple, while retaining adherence to its religious foundation. In particular a simple wooden altar with an array of paintings of saints in the icon style as the altar piece/backdrop.
    Above more paintings of angels in a circle surrounding an image of God.

    This church is well worthy of a visit en route to another attraction.

    we saw this while out on a snow mobile ride. Its a beautiful old building, well maintained & obviously well loved by the locals with many people using it to get married in, even in summer despite guests having a lengthy journey to get there by foot. In Winter you can get there easily by snow mobile and the associated buildings next to it are very interesting

    This was one of the highlights of our trip in Lapland! Petri took us to the forest with his snowmobile where we found hundreds of reindeers waiting hor us! We got to feed them, observe them, and hear everything about them from Petri who responded all our questions with accuracy and enthusiasm. We also got to rest around a fire pit with hot coffee/tea and cinnamon buns. It was also great to learn more about the Sami language and culture and to visit the small shop (where we bought a fantastic reindeer hide). We highly recommend it!

    Raisa is an amazing host. We loved meeting the reindeer (she’ll nurse sick ones in her yard) and she told us the stories about many of her favorites. Her farm is located outside Inari on a private road (we saw some wild ones on the way), but you meet at her house. She’ll show you how to feed the reindeer and then you return to her home for snacks.

    The most unique part was her showing the Sami clothing she made for her family (many reindeer related) and she showed us a book on Sami culture and clothing and pointed out which models were her family members. Visiting her was a highlight of Finland.

    She only takes small groups and it felt like visiting the home of a friend more than a tour. She also has a small craft shop (which will get bigger once her new building is finished). Thanks, Raisa!
