In the far North of Finnish Lapland lies the popular resort of Inari-Saariselkä. Ivalo is locatedin between. The unique northern countryside, national parks, lake areas, rivers and highland fells offer a wealth of opportunities for year-round travel. In winter, the Northern Lights dance across the sky up to 200 days a year.
Ivalo is a village where our tourists are accommodated but most of activities are held in Inari-Saariselkä. It offers amazing time in real Finnish nature and the possibility to see Aurora Borealis, swimming in the Arctic ocean (during the tour to Norway), visiting the Nord Cape, rolling in the snow after hot sauna, having a drink with the friends, visiting huskies, driving snowmobile, meeting Santa Claus and cozy nights in wooden cabins in the center of nowhere.
During spring semester we visit Kemi snow castle and enjoy masterpieces from the ice. Keep in mind: snow castle services are weather permitting.
