Posio offers endless options for self-exploring hikers.
If you are looking for beautiful, but easily accessible nature sites, Posio is the place for you. Palotunturi hiking trail is situated on an old-growth forest conservation area, and leads hikers to a open wilderness hut on the fell peak. Hirsiniemi trail runs partly on a protected lake shore area and partly on top of a sand ridge offering spectacular views to Lake Livojärvi. If you have time and energy, the Auttiköngäs waterfall and nature trail are just an hour's drive away from the center of Posio.
