We hiked out to the church on an unusually warm day and reached the church just before lunch. A fantastic place in the middle of the wilderness. Well worth a visit.

Situated about 8 km NNE from Inari village we reached the church after a nice adventurous trip by snowmobile through snowy forest and over icy lakes. Although a simple construction it is still impressive. If - like us - you visit the church in winter,...More

A 250 year old church , still in use, but only for special events. Very austere, but interesting because of it's age. I believe it is accessible only by sled , snowmobile, or on foot.
