Scenic Snowshoeing on the top of Pyhä Fell

Hop on the chairlift and enjoy the vast natural scenery from the top of the fell while taking your first steps in snowshoes, right next to Pyhä-Luosto National Park. Feel the peak and see the sights with the best views to fill up your Instagram!

2 hours and 30 minutes EASY

This entry-level snowshoeing tour includes a PyhäExpress chair lift ticket to the top of Pyhä Fell (weather permitting) for the best possibly views across the Pyhä-Luosto National Park and beyond! Our guide will show you how to use snowshoes in a safe environment while sharing stories of the Arctic nature, the surrounding landmarks, and the old Lappish beliefs.

Pyhä Fell offers many opportunities for photographing the changing landscape and and the surrounding nature. The frosty snow starts to cover the trees up in the fell right when the first sub-zero temperatures arrive and the warm and moist air starts to rise from the valley to the top of the fell. Photographers especially are mesmerized by these fairytale-like snow monsters and the different shapes and sizes the snow creates around the trees. Depending on time of year, you may also capture the Polar night sunrise/sunset colors or halos around the sun on a frosty winter day. Camera is a must-have accessory for the Scenic snowshoeing tour!

After visiting the top, we will walk down to the Pyhä-Luosto National Park. On the route back there are plenty to see, for example the reindeer paddock. Go and say hi to friendly reindeers! The tour can and will be tailored based on the clients’ request. Also suitable for a family (snowshoes for kids also available).

Note: Pick up from Luosto starts 30 minutes before departure.

Classic Wilderness Skiing in Pyhä-Luosto National Park

Ski through the unbroken snow in forest like a local! The most genuine activity in Lapland, rewarding also for the absolute beginner. A guide will be delighted to instruct you the safe and fun wilderness skiing technique.

2 hours and 30 minutes EASY

Not a snowshoe nor a traditional long back country ski – but a cross-breed with best of the both worlds. A wide, short, agile ski makes it easy to travel across thick snowfields. No previous skiing experience required for enjoying gliding across the puffy snowfields. Exploring Arctic forest was never so easy and effortless!

CLASSIC WILDERNESS SKIING IS AVAILABLE BOTH IN PYHÄ AND LUOSTO, LAPLAND

Meeting points

CAMP Kitchen & Bar Pyhä, Kultakeronkatu 21
Pyhätunturi, 98530, FI

Amethyst Shop, Luostontie 4
Luosto, 99555, FI

What's included?

  • Guiding and storytelling
  • Use of Altai skis, ski poles and other gear, such as gaiters
  • Hot berry beverages
  • Warm clothing & winter boots (on request)

What do i need to bring?

Suitable personal clothing for winter weather including warm boots, hat and gloves or mittens. Please consider bringing some snacks like nuts or chocolate (caution: keep chocolate in a pocket inside of your jacket, otherwise it will freeze). Complimentary hot berry beverages included.

Please note

The Classic Wilderness Skiing Tour lasts 2,5 hours. Wilderness skiing does not require earlier experience in skiing.

From Rovaniemi, the closest airport and Santa Claus’ headquarters, it takes approximately two hours by car or by Skibus to reach us in Pyhä (Hotel Pyhätunturi) or in Luosto (Lapland Hotel Luostotunturi).

Altai ski is a short, easy-to-use forest ski that combines the best features of a snowshoe. With a partial climbing skin integrated into the base, the ski climbs with ease. The skin also makes the ski slower and easier to control than traditional skis. The ski’s short, wide design makes it incredibly maneuverable, ideal for thick woods and variable terrain, a truly all-purpose backcountry tool.
