Northern Lapland is one of the most remote regions in Europe, yet Inari is quite accessible. The nearest airport is located just south in Ivalo, and is well served from Helsinki and other major cities, the rail service (via Rovaniemi) is efficient, and there are numerous bus routes. Getting there by car will take time, but the routes up the western coast or past the eastern towns and cities are excellent, and very picturesque.
Taxi service can be found in Saariselkä, Ivalo, Lemmenjoki village and Utsjoki. Ivalo airport has four rental cars, if you want to rent a car during your stay. Charters are an easy way to make group visits to various destinations in northern Lapland, and even in Norway or the Russian side.
