Loitering around Nellim

In my trip to Finland, we managed to squeeze out some time to explore a 2km radius around the Wilderness Hotel Nellim. Proper roads though. :)

Nellim is a small village on the shore of Lake Inari, and is about 45 minutes away from the Ivalo domestic airport. Basically, the only 2 things worthy to take note is the Wilderness hotel, and the wooden Skolt Sámi Orthodox Church. :)

Below are some pictures which I took of the surroundings. Enjoy.

If I recall correctly, its one of the many signs marking the trail to the church

Any wildlife around? Well, I caught one at the last day!

More posts soon on more activities in Finland!
