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.

    We had an amazing guide at Siida who told us so many personal stories that really helped everyone relate and learn about the Sami people and their history. The museum has a great open air part as well as some wonderful interactive exhibits indoors as well. Highly recommend!

    It was wonderful to be in with the reindeer and feed them by hand, and the owner was very knowledgeable. We learnt everything about the reindeer, the farm, the area, the Saami people and their way of life. We were treated to hot drinks and biscuits in a Saami round house whilst we learnt about their culture. Loved every minute of it.

    Cool lake for observing northern lights
    Very dark at night, makes an ideal base for a stargazing. Has flat beaches where you can drive on to avoid lume

    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.

    There is some excellent craftwork in here along with materials to make your own pieces.
    Unlike some Duodji I have seen that mostly focus on jewellery or knives, in addition to these there is also a lot of clothing in here, baby shoes, caps, belts, ties etc. There are also some smaller, more accessible pieces, simpler, smaller jewellery pieces and key rings for example.
    The staff were informative and helpful and pointed out that the receipt also includes the name of the maker for the items purchased. A great connection to the piece. Highly recommended.

    We made with our family of 8 adults 2 tours with Terhi and Arto. The first was to the middel of the lake for aurora spotting and the 2nd a tour around their 14 hectare property with explanations of the wild life, the vegetation and life and history in arctic Finland. They are both very sociable and knowledgeable people who gave us a great time!

    Visiting Angeli’s farm is one of the things you should do when you stay in or around Inari. It was one of the best experiences of our holiday. Listening to Anne’s stories about the life of a Sami family while walking in the beautiful forest is very special and makes you feel humble. It’s almost magical to hear that there is a group of people in Europe who still live so close to nature. She makes everyone feel welcome too. Takka Innuv Anne, also to the dogs and your beautiful reindeers :)

    We booked a package with lodging, 1/2 board, and excursions, so we had lots of experience with this company. Before our first excursion, we were issued snow suits, mittens, boots, and balaclavas. I was sure they wouldn't be able to fit me (short and stout), but they did. They also had extra wool socks, if you needed them (yours were wet, etc.). Be sure to wear long underwear and some sort of insulation layer underneath, for example, fleece top and pants. The snowsuits do have zips up the leg so you can get them on and off with boots and access your own pants pockets. They also have a couple of shallow zipper pockets on the top for your small camera or phone. We were issued a large duffle bag for our coats and other items and were told to keep the loaner stuff until our last excursion which was really helpful. In all, it took 20-30 minutes to get all the stuff and try on a couple of pairs of boots, etc.
    The guides were uniformly nice and pleasant, even when all the visitors were of different nationalities and had different needs. The excursions we did were:
    1. Reindeer sleigh ride. This one was a favorite. We were taken to a reindeer herder, bundled into a 1-2 person sleigh and then the herder led the lead reindeer on about a 2 mile route. The reindeer were strung together so no actual ability was needed. We also got to feed, but not pet, the reindeer. Afterward, we went into a traditional Sammi dwelling with a fire and had some hot berry juice and an opportunity to warm up.
    2. Aurora camp. We loaded into a sled that was pulled by a snowmobile across frozen Lake Inari to a small island (this took about 25 minutes). As soon as the guide saw the aurora, the stopped to point it out to us. Once at the island, we stopped for more photos. We went into the tent and the guide made a nice fire, cooked sausages and pancakes and we had more hot berry juice. We had a beautiful view of the aurora and the stars, but, of course, this is highly dependent on the skies. We were so, so cold though. The trip back, particularly was cold and long - couldn't feel my feet at all!
    3. Dog sledding. This excursion was very close to the reindeer area. We were taken there, given some instruction on how to stop the sled and some hand signals and then we were off. One of us sat in the sled while the other drove, then about 1/2 way, we changed positions. This was more difficult than the reindeer for sure in that we actually had to drive and watch what the sled in front of us was doing. Personally, I thought it was a lot of fun for the first 10 minutes of driving, then it was a little tiring and cold. If you have a Go Pro, this is a good place to use it because you can't take photos while you are driving. When we got back to the kennel area, we could go into a hut and sit around a fire, have more hot berry juice, and ask the dog handler questions. You could also hang around outside with the dogs some more, but it was very, very cold and the dogs were all barking and barking.
    4. Aurora hunting by car. This is a 4-hour excursion and helps you make sure you see the aurora because you can go fairly far if it is cloudy. Of course, it might be fine right in Inari, but then again, it might not, and you did travel to Finland in the winter to see them. We went 120 km before the skies cleared, but then we saw them quite clearly. This is also nice in that you have the van to warm up in, although when the aurora was really showing off, no one got inside! There was more hot berry juice, but I skipped it this time because I wasn't freezing to death.
    Overall, I was quite pleased with this company and the guides and all of their contracted people (reindeer herder, dog handler) were really great. I did book a standard package, but they let me swap the 2-hour snowshoe expedition for the reindeer experience. We met another couple who did the snowshoes and they said it was very nice as well with a hike up to the top of a mountain. The other perk of the package was that they provided transportation between the airport in Ivalo and Inari and they picked us up and dropped us off at the Holiday Village. If you are staying at Hotel Inari, it is right next to the office.

    I heard about this tour from other guests at the hotel and was told that I have more chance to see the northern lights with him, because he is a local person who drives around the area and beyond to make sure you'll find the lights.
    Of course all depend on the weather, but if there is a chance of Northern lights somewhere 50 km away from your hotel he will take you there.
    You can tell that this job is his passion and he is very knowledgable on the subject.
    We did a numer of stops if different places to find the best view.
    He takes pictures with his profesional camera and will email them to you. (Phones don't do that well)
    I highly recommend! He's the best man for the job.
