You can rent a motorboat from Kalastajan Majatalo for good old-fashioned salmon fishing. The River Inari is also great for fly-fishing in a wilderness environment. Fishermen (and women) can use both the Finnish and Norwegian banks of the river. In this case, the fishing management fee (kalastuksenhoitomaksu) must be paid both in Finland and Norway (fiskeravgift).
The wilderness areas of Paistunturi and Muotkatunturi on the eastern side of Karigasniemi offer a wide range of hiking opportunities.
The mountainous highlands of Utsjoki are especially popular among hunters with bird-hunting dogs. Hunting is limited by the game population that varies from one year to another. In licence areas 1601–1604 in Utsjoki, you can hunt red grouse, hare, small predators and water birds during the hunting season. Ask us for more information about the hunting opportunities in the area!
In the winter, Karigasniemi offers great adventures for those who enjoy snowmobile rides. The trail from Inari branches out to Karigasniemi in Kielajoki halfway down the Karigasniemi-Kaamanen road. The route to the north takes you to Utsjoki and Nuorgam via the Kaldoaivi wilderness area. From Karigasniemi, you can continue on to Norway on snowmobile trails. The trails in the municipality of Karasjok run on the river along the border between Finland and Norway (Inarijoki) and the closest trails branch off this trail and run along the riverbanks of the Karasjoki and Iskurasjoki all the way to the Arctic Ocean.

Porsangerfjorden fjord and Nordkapp in Norway offer high cliffs and the fresh northern wind. We recommend the Karasjok municipality in Norway, only 18 kilometres away, as a day-trip destination.
