Pyhä is a true Lappish ski resort surrounded by the natural beauty of fell landscapes in the Pyhä-Luosto National Park. Here reindeers roam free and Northern lights dance in the sky. Already the ancient Lappish people recognized the beauty of Pyhä, and brought offerings to the gods on these impressive fells. Today well-maintained ski slopes, efficient ski lifts and great service guarantee fabulous skiing days at Pyhä. Ski area is totally renewed with a superfast 6 person chair lift, new Piste Palander (FIS) Slope and improved beginners’ area. Pyhä is easily reached from Rovaniemi. In just 90 minutes from the airport you are skiing surrounded by pure nature. At Pyhä the quietness and magnificent nature of the National Park are just at 300m from the accommodation.

Pyhä, short for Pyhätunturi (holy mountain or fell) is a fell in Finnish Lapland. Pyhä is nesting a modern ski resort with good selection of slopes ranging from family friendly to demanding and has plenty of opportunities for off-pist skiing as well. Pyhä is relatively quiet place compared to some other resorts, which is not a bad thing at all.... More

Pyhä is both for a winter and summer tourism attraction. During the winter you can ski. Summer is for hiking. We tried the new app of MobiRanger to find the best places in Pyhä, resting places and the geological attractions there. And we did not get lost due to the GPS-location of the app. MobiRanger is for any mobile, for... More

Pyha is very small with 1 supermarket and a couple of clothes/souvenir shops. The slopes were very quiet with no queues even though it was Finnish half term. Even though there were a small number of slopes some were quite challenging. We did think that the grading of the slopes was dubious. The blues could have been reds and so... More

Our flight was approximately 3hrs 30mins and within 20 minutes of landing at Kittila we were on the small minibus to Pyha. Transfer to Pyha was approximately 2hrs, a very steady drive through the snow covered forests. On our arrival... More

We stayed at Holy suites (rented through Best Western). The apartment was nice and well equipped (Wifi, TV, DVD-player, good kitchen stuff with kitchenette). The... More

My family have just come back from a magical holiday in Pyha. We stayed in a lovely log cabin which had everything we needed and more. There were 8 of us including my 4 year old grand-daughter and we still had a spare room. The older boys went snow boarding every day and loved it - we took our 4... More

We went with Crystal in March - mainly to be assured of good snow. The snow was terrific and the runs, although limited, were expertly maintained so very flattering. Also there were no queues for the lifts. The resort is very child friendly and we saw a large number of quite young children skiing around on their own (the slopes... More

We have just got back from a fantastic week in Pyha, Finland. Lapland. We went with Crystal holidays and from start to finish every thing went perfectly. The flight landed at Kussamo airport and although very small our luggage was with us very quickly. There are only two toilets in the arrivals so if you need to go you can... More
