Description

Situated in the stunning boreal forests of northern Finland, Pyhä-Luosto National Park is the perfect place for a skiing and snowshoeing touring adventure!

Starting from one of two hotels, we will begin the 4-day tour by skiing past the 514-meter high Ukko-Luosto Fell, enjoying great views of it, before continuing on through the unique Taiga forest and on to the mountain hut.

The following couple of days at the hut will be spent exploring the surrounding areas on your skis and getting the chance to try out ice fishing on two different lakes.

Afterwards, we will transfer to another hut and swap our skis out for snowshoes. We will spend the rest of the trip walking through the scenic Pyhä-Luosto fell range, getting the chance to go up to the highest point of the fell chain, Noitatunturi.

From here, we will enjoy the best views of the Pyhä-Luosto National Park before snowshoeing out of the fells to enjoy the saunas at Lake Pyhäjärvi.

Afterwards, we will transfer back to the start of the trip and say our goodbyes.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 4-day skiing and snowshoeing tour in the sublime wintertime scenery of Pyhä-Luosto National Park!

Great wilderness experience with Hannele and Claudia at Bliss Adventure in mid-January. Beautiful winter wilderness landscape and overnight stay in rustic but very comfortable log cabin. Remote and undisturbed but at the same time not too strenuous and appropriate for beginner/intermediate level skiers. Excellent organization and guiding. Highly recommended.
