A lot of the time you have too much on your plate to plan a holiday and suddenly a week frees up and Lapland’s on the menu. When booking last minute you want good snow, comfy accommodation and great things to do, all without a humungous price tag; this is where Pyhä excels. Check the snow report and snow history for annual trends - Pyhä tends to have snow-sure slopes right up till May thanks to its low temperatures and north-facing aspect.
Get to grips with the forecast before you pack – some proper thermal layers are worth ordering for next day delivery if you don’t already have some, as the average temperatures are a lot chillier than France or Austria.
If you’re booking last minute, a hassle-free package with travel is usually the best bet and staying in a hotel on full or half-board is great for those that just want to explore all day and come back to a plate of hot food in the evening. If you’re looking for a more flexible, cost-effective trip, staying in an apartment or log cabin is the answer.
The resort has mixed terrain that caters especially well for beginners and advanced skiers. Some of the resort’s red runs, especially those in the Polar Slopes are a great challenge for intermediates and freestylers have the Snow Park to enjoy. For families and groups, this place is great as there’s so much to do, both on and off the mountains from husky rides to ice fishing. The local Lappish food is comforting and tasty and the chance to see the Northern Lights is too awesome to turn down.
