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.

Arctic and Aurora Activities of a Lifetime

Pyhä’s enormous wilderness setting and dark skies offer the perfect environment for both Arctic and Aurora activities.

Northern Lights Village Pyhä sits in the fell scenery of the National Park with beautiful lakeside and forest surroundings, approximately 10 minutes from Pyhä. Though easily accessible, this remote setting has a very special and tranquil atmosphere. What’s more, the resort offers many activities to complete your time in the Arctic. From snow-based experiences to exploring the colourful autumnal scenes, the resort may be peaceful but you can make your stay as adventurous as you like.

As darkness falls, the resort’s location away from light pollution makes it a prime destination for Aurora hunting.
