Pyhä-Luosto National Park
The southernmost area of great fells in Finland provides visitors to explore the magnificent scenery and stunning nature of Lapland while close to a vast range of services. The surrounding Pyhä-Luosto National Park is a mosaic of open fell and aapa mires, silent old-growth forests and rugged gorges. Pyhä-Luosto National Park is a superb destination for day trips and short hikes throughout the year. The 35-km-long fell chain in Pyhä-Luosto is a remnant of one of the Earth’s oldest mountain ranges, formed over 2000 million years ago.
