Practically, the only way to get to Utsjoki is using the roads; either driving or travelling with the bus . Remember that distances are huge. One can reach Utsjoki using E 75 from the south and E 6 from Norway. E6 passes 4 km (3 mi) north of Utsjoki, on the norwegian side of the border. The second most important village is Nuorgam, some 50 km north-east from Utsjoki. Nuorgam is the very northernmost point of Finland.

People coming from the Norwegian side of the border usually head for the Alko store in Nuorgam to buy liquor, because it's far cheaper than in Norway. Tourists from elsewhere will most probably find some souvenirs more interesting.
