LAST MINUTE! Northern Lights Break in Pyhä-Luosto

LAST MINUTE! Northern Lights Break in Pyhä-Luosto

Lapland has now more snow than in 30 years! This last minute trip to Pyhä in Lapland offers you great value for money. Three night in a glass igloo and environmentally friendly activity package with a husky safari, snowshoeing, e-fatbiking and e-snowmobiiling. You will also cook a Lappish dinner by campfire with a chef out of local ingredients.  

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.

PyhäIgloos is ecologically built igloo hotel. It is crafted from Lappish timber, a material that breathes, endures and is natural and local. The apartments are attached to save energy. The carbon footprint of the Igloos is low as the trees chopped for building are replanted making the buildings themselves carbon sinks. 

The apartments are very Scandinavian with light wooden waals and Marimekko textiles. The igloo hotel also has a sauna with a hot jacuzzi booked for you for one evening for 1,5h. 

The Amethyst mine i is the specialty of Pyhä-Luosto.. 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.

Activties included: 

Husky Safari takes you to the winter forest in an unforgettable way. This is the kind of activity that is fun for everyone and leaves a good memory for a long time to come. Huskies absolutely love pulling sledges and running on trail across the forest.  They are veyr friendly and like you to pet them. Two adults share a team of huskies.  This takes place on your arrival day in Rovaniemi. 

Snowshoeing to the Amethyst mine  requires good condition as you will walk upwards. The snowshoeing part is appr. 2,5km after which you will take the last part by a pendolino. Up on the hill there is the Amethyst ine. You will hear about this gem and get down to the mine yourselves. The view over the winter landscape is simply amazing. 

e-Fatbiking  takes place in Pyhä--Luosto National park. Fatbikes are designed to be used on snow, they have big flat tyres giving you a good grip on snow. Electric engine helps you and makes it a bit easier for you. 

Cooking by campfire  offers you a chance to see the Lucky Ranch with horses and snow igloos. You will sit by campfire and cook a delicious 3-course lappish dinner outdoors out of local ingredients. 

e-Snowmobiiles  are silent and in that way offer you a unique experiennce. You will be picked up from the hotel and get the most magical experience in the darkish winter forest (it is not as dark as you would think). If you are lucky, you will see the northern lights. If they do not appear yet during your tour, you have yet three nights in the glass igloo.
