Get to know Pyhä-Luosto

Pyhä-Luosto is synonymous with Lapland. In the nook of a National Park, it lies pure and unspoilt. It is sympathetic, cosy and tranquil.

Services within a small area

National parks, gorges, fells and clear waters as far as the eye can see

  Pyhä-Luosto has all services within a small area, and in its backyard the oldest National Park in Finland with its gorges, peaks and old-growth forests. It is sympathetic, cosy and tranquil.

The most famous sights in the National Park are only a short walk away: Isokuru Gorge, Pyhäkaste Waterfall and Uhriharju Ridge. You can take part in most of the activities in the National Park or in its immediate vicinity.

Experience and enjoy!

Unspoilt Pyhä-Luosto

Pyhä-Luosto makes one think of serendipity. People hear about it from a friend or stumble on it once they have experienced the busy ski centres of Lapland. The fells offer one of the most magnificent views in Finland. The villages on the hills, however, are tiny and sympathetic.

You can be sure that there are no glaring fluorescent lights or masses of tourists. The spirit of Pyhä-Luosto, as its name in Finnish suggests, is sacred and home-grown. This doesn’t mean that Pyhä-Luosto wouldn’t offer good customer service, on the contrary; everyone welcomes visitors gladly. This kingdom of fell tops and gorges has attracted many regular visitors who have become friends with the locals.
