Holiday in northeastern Lapland: Joosula and Pyhä

Holiday in northeastern Lapland: Joosula and Pyhä

Joosula  is a guesthouse hosting max 9 guests at a time so your group will fill the whole guesthouse. Please note, that it is a private home hosted by Tuulikki and Pentti, not a hotel. You'll get your own family apartments and you will be the only guests. 

Activities in Joosula: 

1) Try kick-sledging or tobogganing on snow, even cross-country skiing f you like.

2)  Sledge-dog safari 13km takes you on a ride through the forests pulled by your own husky teams (2adults share a team of dogs, children sit in sleigh of the guide in front). 

3) Snowmobile tour, not by driving but sitting in sleigh so that you can look up on the sky and see, if there would be northern lights dancing . Those, who want to drive snwomobile, can then book their own tour in Pyhä. During this tour you will visit a cabin where you will meet Santa himself.

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.

Pyhä  is a skiing center especially well known well among the backcountry skiers. There are 7 backcountry skiing areas available. Guided backcountry skiing tours are organised by the ski-school. There are also 150km of cross -country ski-tracks, part of them lighted so you can ski also during the polar night.

Activities in Pyhä: 

1) Cross-country skiing tour 2h  will take you all for a short, instructed tour while waiting for the aurora cabins to get ready for you. After this it is possible to rent skies for next day and ski more. Alternatively this can be changed to a 90-minute instruction of downhill skiing.  

2) Reindeer sleigh ride  takes you on a 1-hour sleigh ride over the snowy sceneries. You just need to take a comfy seat in your sleigh and open all your senses for a calming experience. After the relaxing adventure your host takes you to warm kota hut and serve coffee with homemade pastries.  You also get chance to feed the reindeer calves and hear interesting stories about reindeer herder´s everyday life. After coming back to the reindeer farm, it is time to have dinner in a Lappish hut.

There is a lot to do in Pyhä ski village. You can go ice-karting, downhill skiing, fatbiking, snowmobiling or cross-country skiing for example. Later you will find also sample prices for activities not yet included in this plan.
