Day hike in Pyhä-Luosto national park

1.6.2020—1.11.2016

This hike is the ideal way to discover the different ecosystems of Lapland in the automn, at a quiet pace.

the whole hike is about 12-13 km long, and we are mostly following hiking trails and using duckboards when crossing wet areas (so regular hiking boots are enough).

I pick you from the location of your choice in Luosto at 9.30, and we will drive to the national park (10-15 min drive) where we will start our hike. We will discover the old boreal forest, go through arctic peatlands and swamp areas, and drink the pure water from clear forest streams whenever we feel thirsty. We´ll stop for a meal around the fire in a forest camp. The menu will be grilled meat (reindeer, elk, or beef entrecôte) ,  potatoes in folio with parsley butter, with a glass of  crowberry wine. For dessert, we have fruit, traditional pastry and coffee. On the way back, we will have the possibility to climb over the tree-line in order to have a look at the incredible lappish panorama from above.

The whole trip lasts around 5-6 hours (depending on our walking speed, and the length of our photo breaks!), and i will drop you back to your accomodation by car or taxi.
