If you are lucky you can find most famous jewel in Lapland – the Shaman jewel. In the center of Pyhä you will find the Naava heritage center , which is worth stopping by.

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 during the aurora seasons (Sept-Nov, Feb-April). 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.
