Lake Inari

Lake Inari is the third largest lake in Finland and the largest lake in Finnish Lapland. The lake has 3000 islands and the Sami people used one of the islands (Hautuumaasaari) as a cemetery island. I was camping one night at the lake and also one night on top of a hill which offered a nice view towards the lake.

Siida museum

The Siida museum was one of the main attractions I was interested in when I visited Inari. It displays the history and culture of the Sami people, and with my museum card, which I purchased a few weeks ago, I was able to get into every museum in Finland for free.

The Siida museum had a room that displayed the history of the area over time. On the next floor, the main exhibition displayed the nature and culture of the area during the seasons. Outside was a trail that displayed different housing styles and traps of the Sami.
