is a peatland protection area
35 km north of Sodankylä
on the E75 that offers a great opportunity to view authentic aapa mire landscape of Lapland
. The landscape of the peatland changes with the seasons and spring brings along floods and the return of migrating birds. In the autumn the aapa mire turns to a variety of vibrant colors which offer some nice photography opportunities. The trail is a duckboard trail
which traverses the bog and leads to a bird-watching tower
where you can observe the mire birdlife. Behind the mire rises the jagged silhouette of Postovaara Hill
. The peatland area is accessed by a swing-gate that is right on the side of the roadway and there is a pull-off area directly across from the gate where you can park.
