This is a super day tour! we take you to the Lapland-Posio region to Riisitunturi Fell situated in the National Park. It was voted the best hiking area in Finland in 2010 and it is no surprise.

Riisitunturi is famous for its snowcovered trees and a real must for photographers. High up on the fell there are splendid views of Lapland and the famous Kitka lake. We set out by breaking a trail with snowshoes up through the snowy forest wilderness to the top, stopping for a rest by the fire in an old cabin.

December, January and February are the prime months to experience the snow sculptured trees at their best!

Duration 6-7 hours

Level Moderate/Easy
