Welcome to experience the magnificent landscape, beautiful natural features and peace of Pyhä-Luosto National Park, together with the area’s versatile services. The Pyhä-Luosto National Park is located just by Pyhä and Luosto tourist centres, connecting these two resorts along the hiking and skiing trails. Pyhä-Luosto National Park is a superb destination for day trips and short hikes throughout the year.
The basic zone of the National Park is formed of Finland’s southernmost fell chain. The area has many functions; it is for conserving nature, preserving indigenous people’s culture and serving as a destination for hiking and tourism.
The National Park consists of Finland’s oldest National Park (Pyhätunturi National Park established already in 1938) and of the Luosto area northwest of Pyhätunturi Fell. These were combined at the beginning of 2005 to form a new National Park.
