Ivalo is a village in the region of Inari, Lapland, Finland, situated on the Ivalo River. Just 19 miles to the south of the village is the popular resort of Saariselkä. It is a well-known destination each year for those who enjoy winter sports such as husky and reindeer sledge riding, skiing and snowboarding. It is also a great place for outdoor adventures like trekking and hiking, canoeing, panning for gold, and fishing. Hiring a car from Ivalo Airport lets you use the village as a base so you can explore the rest of the region with ease.
Rent a car from Ivalo Airport and drive the short distance to Lake Inarijärvi which is the third biggest lake in the country. Here you can learn all about the two local fishing techniques which are net fishing and ice fishing. This guided tour involves travelling by car and by snowmobile. During the trip you also get to enjoy a tasty picnic around the camp fire. Travel around 20 minutes south of the village to Saariselkä which is a great place to watch the famous Northern Lights. There are some of the highest sighting rates here from between September to March.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
