Amazing cool nature.
Jun 2021
Rocky scenery. Easy access to best places. Nightless night in summer is amazing. Also longer and harder routes, like "noitatunturi" hiking.

Accessible hiking with great views
Sep 2020
Mid-September is the best time to see autumn colours at their best. There are number of hiking routes for every ability. Noitatunturi route was great, but real hiking shoes recommended - the route is really rocky.

Wonderful national park to experience Lapland activities
Dec 2019 • Family
My family with young kids truly enjoyed this national park. We stayed inside the park for 7 nights to experience lots of activities like skiing, Aurora hunting, snowshoeing, ice fishing, etc. Snowshoeing was a wonderful moment when we met the wild Siberian Jays in Pyha. Park was seclusive and quiet with not many people around.

Very beautiful national park
Oct 2019
We visited the park in mid-October. There was some snow on the ground and the temperatures were around -3 to -1 C. The trails are well maintained. But the wooden steps can be very slippery, so be careful. You need to have spiked shoes.

Beautiful nature and great walks
Aug 2019
We stayed two nights in the area and walked two trails, first Tunturiaapa Nature Trail. Varied nature, all gorgeous and it was so lovely to meet beautiful Siberian jays on the way. On the second day we walked to Karhunjuomalampi Pond and back. Fabulous sights and nature. Perfect lunch stop at the Karhunjuomalampi lean-to shelter with an open fire.

Hiked up, barefoot all the way, to the Witch Fjell. 90F/29C at the top.
Jun 2019 • Family
I have hiked tons in Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, Virginia, Spain, Italy, France etc. But this place is unique. You can access one of the most beautiful gorges on the planet, the Iso Kuru (Big Gorge) by simply walking from the hotel. The hike is truly world class and well set up. If you want to push further from the waterfall for some elevation gain, you can gain the top of the Noitatunturi (Witch Fjell) relatively easy. We did it and it was 90F/29C at the top in early June despite being at 67N latitude, which is way further North than Fairbanks, Alaska. Not one single mosquito on early June. Had 12, 10 and 8 year olds kid with me. Just stunning. Never, ever, ever seen dayhikes of this world class quality be accessible by simply walking out of your hotel. Not even in Chamonix, where a gondola ride is required. Services were good for us. The more adventurous can make it a 2-3 day hike to another stunning fjell in the same national park, Luosto. If you just avoid the mosquito season, which is like July to August, and go instead in June or September, you will be absolutely amazed.Truly a hidden gem!!!

Wanted to see autumn colours
Oct 2018 • Couples
We stayed one week in Pyhätunturi. Our hotel was very nice and comfortable. Very good place to start daily walking. The gate to the National Park was nearly opposite our hotel. In National Park Pyhä they have different kind of hiking trails . Hiking here was really nice experience. We did four different kind of slopes and we enjoyed ! They were day trips. There are also fireplaces if you would like to do hot sausages etc. But, totally in Pyhä-Luosto National Park they have 102km marked trails.

A fabulous wild, nature filled experience in the big outdoors! My husband and I trekked all day through this national park and saw some wonders including Siberian jays, reindeer, black grouse and waxwings. Would love to come back
