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 visitors to Lapland looking for a less commercial destination where the Finns themselves love to visit.
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.
