The many paths and ski and snowmobile trails of Pello in Lapland create countless route alternatives for walking and hiking. The independent traveller can don a backpack and sleep at a lean-to shelter, allowing the nightless night of Lapland to endow the excursion with its own special magic. These stunning sceneries can also be enjoyed on shorter trips; just take a marked trail to a scenic location and let your eyes caress the landscape that opens below. You can find more general information about Pello hiking trails HERE.
A hike can also include some geocaching. A geocache is usually marked with GPS coordinates, but using a device should not be necessary for finding the cache. Coupling geocaching with hiking somewhat resembles orienteering, which is a very popular pastime in Pello. If you want to go orienteering, an evening event is organised on an almost weekly basis.

Many other activities can also be coupled with hiking. Oranki Art offers visitors the chance to see artworks crafted into the forest – time flies when you take in this collection. There is also a geocatch in OrankiArt area. Further information HERE about Oranki Art Environmental Art Exhibition.
