Best of the Arctic Pyhätunturi

Experience the best parts of the Arctic winter in Pyhätunturi! The beautiful surroundings of Pyhätunturi will take you on an unforgettable journey in Lapland. During this tour you will get to snowshoe through a pine forest, meet reindeer and huskies and enjoy the traditional Finnish sauna. Not to mention the Northern Lights! If you get lucky, you will experience this amazing phenomenon and take photos to remind you of this experience.

Pyhä-Luosto National Park, where Pyhätunturi is located, is formed of Finland’s southernmost fell chain. The area has many functions; it is for conserving nature, preserving indigenous people’s culture and serving as a destination for hiking and tourism. The National Park consists of Finland’s oldest National Park (Pyhätunturi National Park established already in 1938) and of the Luosto area northwest of Pyhätunturi Fell. These were combined at the beginning of 2005 to form a new National Park. In southwest areas of Ukko-Luosto Fell and Lampivaara Hill forests have not been logged and some trees are as old as 400 years. The Luosto area is known for its majestic old-growth pine forests and Pyhätunturi for its geology and Forest Sámi history. The fell chain is a collage of treeless peaks and deep ravines. Lush forests, some of them herb-rich forests, flourish in the area’s valleys and along brook banks.
