Giellajohkan ympäristö tarjoaa mahtavia mahdollisuuksia tehdä lyhyitä tai vähän pidempiäkin päiväretkiä. Suoraan Giellajohkan pihasta lähtevien polkujen varrelta löytyy ainutlaatuista tunturimaisemaa, 500 vuotta vanhaa männikköä, kaunis erämaajoki sekä vanha erakon kammi. Tai jos haluat vielä enemmän mahdollisuuksia, lyhyen ajomatkan päästä löytyy lisää tarjontaa erityisesti tunturiretkille.
