Short Northern Lights Break at Luosto

Short Northern Lights Break at Luosto

Snowy and silent forest of Pyhä-Luosto National Park looks and feels amazing. Daytime or nighttime there is a lot to see and do. Northern lights look magical as there is less illumination in teh Luosto ski village.

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.

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.  On Fridays (and Mondays) there is also a picture and slide show about the northern lights in the hotel auditorium at 8pm and later at 10pm a guided trail walking for the price of 59€ for adults and 35,50€ for children.

Pre-booked activities at Pyhä: included in price for the whole family

Aurora snowmobiling tour 2,5h  will take you far out from the illumination into the wilderness. By snowmobile you can get on wide open places so this tour will be very difefrent form the snowshoeing experience although the purpose is the same, to see the auroras in the best possible way. Two people always share one snowmobile and warm overalls, helmets, gloves and boots are included in price.

Aurora snowshoeing trip 2,5h  is easy but exciting and it is good sports keeping you warm. Full silence and the sky with the moon and millions of stars lightening up your way. the guide will take you away from the illuminated village up on the hills to the best places to look at the northern lights. Northern lights you can see here often but you do need a clear and bright winter night.

Visit to the Amethyst mine  by Pendolino leaving from Luosto.
