Travel between Trosmo to Inari

Travel between Trosmo to Inari
Save

Hi,

I'm planning to travel from Trosmo to Inari at the end of December.

Discovered that there is 2 routes to transit:

1) Driving from Trosmo to Inari (~8 hours)

2) Take the flight from Trosmo to Lakselv (50mins),

Drive from Lakselv to Inari ( 3 hours) or get the the bus from Lakselv - Karasjok - Inari

Questions about the routes:

1. Is the drive from Lakselv to Inari difficult in winter time ?

2. Any public transport from Lakselv to Karasjok ?

Thank you very much !!

Drive one way? Not a feasible solution as cross border drop off charges are enormous. Otherwise driving would be my preferred way.

You can also fly Tromso-Oulu and take a bus from there.

Hi, Polarbearfins,

Thanks for your advice.

What's the cross border drop off charges mean?

When driving across Norway to Finland, it's necessary to stop by somewhere and pay the charges ?

For your suggestion , Tromso - Oulu, it may not be possible for us as the time is a bit tight for our travel planning. Actually, there are some connected flight from Tromso - Helsinki - Inari. In worse case, this may be the choice or finally we will give up to visit Inari.

Drop off charge = the car rental agency charges you for the return trip -> because they need to hire someone to drive the car back if you don't

No, there is no border control or fees of state/passport officials. Just a sign next to the road.

Driving is OK, if you plan to return to Norway. It's a pretty much a day's drive oneway.

Renting a car in Norway and leaving it in Finland will be very expensive.
