Luosto in brief

Luosto is a small village about 110 North from Rovaniemi. Luosto has a population of approximately 200 inhabitants in winter time and 73 in summer. It is located in the heart of Pyhä-Luosto National Park, which it covers 145 km². This area had mountains as big as the Alps 2 billion years ago. Now a day the highest peak is the Noitatunturi, with 540m. Some of the pines of the area are 200 year-old or older.

Amethyst mine

The Amethyst mine, located in the hill of Lampivaara, is one of the main attractions in Luosto. Climbing the hill will offer you some of the most amazing views in Lapland, with an immense forest and fells. In the Amethyst mine visitors get an introduction about this mineral and they all have the chance to dig for their own lucky stone.

Activities and Safaris

Luosto is the ideal destination for those looking for pure nature and the peace of a small village.  With Rovaniemi nearby, it is also possible to combine a visit to Santa Claus Village or the Rovaniemi city itself.

In Luosto you will be able to enjoy memorable experiences and safaris in pure untouched surroundings.  Drive your own snowmobile, become a real musher riding your own husky sledge, or feel like a Sámi riding your own reindeer pulled sledge, just like in the old days!  Snowshoes excursions in the beautiful National Park are also highly recommended.

As Luosto is a very small village with almost no light pollution Northern Lights displays can be seen at their best.
