Contents

Get in

By plane

Ivalo Airport (IATA: IVL) [1] is the northernmost airport in Finland. The only scheduled services are twice daily flights to Helsinki (1:40) on Finnair, although there are many charter flights from all over Europe during the Christmas/New Year peak tourism season. The airport has a regular bus service to Saariselkä (25 km, 20 min, €7,50), but none to central Ivalo (17 km). Taxis to Ivalo, Utsjoki and Saariselkä cost around €17, €27 and €35 respectively.

By bus

Ivalo is along highway E75 from Utsjoki to Sodankylä and the railhead at Rovaniemi (3 hours away), and is thus served by any buses plying this route. Gluttons for punishment can even take a direct bus from Helsinki, which takes around 15 hours. There's a bus connection from Murmansk, Russia three times a week as well.

Get around

See

Virtually nothing. Ivalo is ugly puny village without anything to do. That's why most people head straight for Inari or Saariselkä.

Do

The Ivalo River nearby was the site of a gold rush in the 1870s, and some gold panners still try their luck.
