Pyhä-Luosto National Park
Situated only 90 minutes from Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland and the nearest airport, Pyhä-Luosto National Park is an easily accessible natural escape from city life.
Formed of Finland’s southernmost fell chain, it is one of the oldest national parks in the country. Not only does the area showcase Finland’s wonderful wilderness, but Pyhä-Luosto National Park also conserves nature, preserves indigenous cultures and is a brilliant destination for hiking and tourism.
In some parts of the park, the forests are not logged so you can see trees that are over 400 years old. The history continues as you delve into the rich Sámi presence here, Europe’s only indigenous people who have called this area home for hundreds of years.
Pyhä is also known to the locals for its brilliant ski resort of Pyhätunturi, making the most of the Finnish fells and abundance of snowfall during the winter.
