For tour operators
Posio is better known as the hidden gem of Finnish Lapland. Away from the highways Posio’s travel sector has developed to a somewhat different direction than other bigger destinations. The tourism companies are rather small family businesses operated by locals. Hotels and cabins are situated in their own privacy by lakes, in forests or forested areas. Hence the sense of space and silence are very much part of the experiences offered to tourists.
International tourism to Posio has been growing steadily, and after the coronavirus pandemic Posio has caught the attention of tour operators looking for non-touristic, authentic and sustainable destinations.
