Lonely Planet review

These cruises sail on Inarijärvi from June (as soon as the ice melts) to September. Departures are at 2pm daily, with an additional departure in July at 6pm. Boats leave from the wharf at the Siida car park. The destination is Ukko Island (Sámi: Äjjih), which is sacred to the Sámi. During the brief (20-minute) stop, most people climb to the top of the island, but there are also cave formations at the island’s northern end. The same company also organises fishing trips and snowmobile safaris, and in summer can organise quad-bike trips.
