Family winter activities in Luosto

Family winter activities in Luosto

Luosto is a convenient place for a family with activities for every day.
A reindeer farm visit, ice fishing experience, an amethyst mine visit,an ice carting and an aurora hunting tour by car. Yet time for skiing on ski-tracks or slopes every day if you like.  

Pyhä-Luosto National Park  is known for its 35 kilometer chain of hills and its extra-ordinary beautiful nature. In the middle of the park there is an amethyst mine, the only gemstone mine in the world that welcomes visitors.

There are two ski resorts, Luosto and Pyhä. Luosto is more authentic and silent whereas there are a lot of action in Pyhä. The distance however is only 24km and there is a bus driving back and forth 4 times a day. By car it takes 20 minutes. Our activities take place in both ends.

Hotel Luostotunturi with its unique log cabin area  is surrounded by the most beautiful Arctic forests and hills. The environment is silent and authentic. There is less light in the village, which makes Luosto one of the best northern light observation places. In the hotel there is a spa and four dining restaurants, a dancing restaurant a music pub and four bars taking care of the entertainment.

Skiing  is available in all formats. There are 7 slopes in Luosto and 14 in Pyhä. The ski pass of Luosto is valid also in Pallas and Olos. For cross-country skiing there are 150 kilometers of maintained ski-tracks. Choice is yours, we have not included any ready-made skiing program in the package.  

The Amethyst mine  is a unique place. Nowhere else you can get to a gem mine. Already the tour there is exciting by a special pendolino taking you from Luosto through the snowy landscape to the mine.

Icefishing  is an experience taking place on a frozen lake. For children especially it is very exciting to try fishing through a hole in the ice. 

Icecarting  is in principle similar to carting indoors except the carting cars have winter tires. There is a warm-up. time lapse runs and the final. Starts on thursdays every even hour. A driver must be over 150cm tall not depending on the age. In your order request, please tell us the number of participants (the cost of 60€ will be counted only for those taking part).

Reindeer farm  is a must. You will be picked up from the hotel by a van. During the tranportation you guide will tell you about reindeer farming (in english).  You will get for an hour's reindeer safari in the forest. Back at the farm children can feed reindeers and you have some time to take photographs.

Northern lights  can be observed on a Northern light trail of 2 kilometers, which leaves from the hotel and can be taken any time as it is lighted. We have also included an Aurora Hunting tour by car, which takes you to the best spots for wathing this phenomenon. No guarantee however can be given that you will see auroras as it is a natural phenomenon. The best time for northern light observation is from mid-February to early April.
