The snowy winters of Posio provide amazing chances for snowshoeing and winter hiking.

Snowshoe walking is an excellent way to discover the different locations in Posio. Especially the marked day trails in Riisitunturi National Park and the Koro’s Ice Trail 5 km in Korouoma canyon are ideal places to try this truly fun way to experience deep snow! Snowshoeing is a perfect activity for the whole family as anyone can do it – no previous experience required. With snowshoes anyone can walk in deep snow without straining themselves. Head for Riisitunturi in the evening, or perhaps you might want to stay over night in the hut on the top of the fell. You may even get to experience the bright Northern Lights – if you are lucky..

Opportunities for skiing in Posio are vast and versatile. There are altogether 70 kilometers of skiing tracks around the area which lead you all the way to special wilderness ski tracks and into the frost decorated Karitunturi and Riisitunturi fell regions.

Should you want to treat yourself with the local specialties on a wintry picnic you might want to try Aneen Loma sausage and other local products found in Posio S-Market Ahola and Kuusamo Prisma.
