Trails with Tales

The Magic Land of Lapland is a secret entrance to mythical stories and adventures.

SHAMAN PARK

Shaman Park is located close to Holiday Village Himmerki, where you can hike the 1-km long Shaman Trail. The path takes you on a journey into the history and traditions of the Forest Laplander, the wonders of forest nature, the spells cast by the shamans, age-old beliefs and the life and times of the witch of Posio, Jouni Junganpoika.

You can walk the trail independently using a small guidebook available in Himmerki, or on a guided trek with the Himmerki guide. The tour takes about an hour.

WILDERNESS FARMER'S PATH

Wilderness Farmer's Path is a story trail with 35 themed information points that are found along the main road in the villages of Posio. Each information board tells about peasantry life in the early 1900s – the skills, living conditions and thoughts of the inhabitants of Posio. This tourist path takes you deep into the culture and everyday life of the Lappish people in the old days. How did people utilize the northern nature in order to survive?

The information points along the trail can be explored using different means of travel, and it is suitable for the whole family. The locations of the information points are marked with stars in the Posio Tourist Map. A small guidebook in different languages can be acquired from Posio Tourist Information.
