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

Fantastic little church and a great walk to get there. Really nice place for a picnic with covered fire pit if it's a cold day. You can shorten the walk from Siida by taking your car to a car park which is a little nearr....More

What a beautiful justice church. The simplicity really spoke to the beauty of the surroundings. I can well imagine a perfect winter wedding.

We arrived on our snow mobiles and one or two of us floundered happily in the deep snow as soon as we disembarked..Our guide told us a lot about the Church. It seemed a holy place, surrounded by the quiet forests............

Again, visited on a snowmobile safari. Very peaceful and simple. Used for hundreds of years and then abandoned before being used again when the town was destroyed in the Second World War. Take a torch.
