In the heart of the resort, the Hotel Pyhätunturi is the ideal base for your winter holiday. It’s a peaceful setting, but it’s just steps to the ski lifts, rental shop and ski school – and at the end of the day, you can ski right back to the door of the hotel.
The rooms are basic, but they’re comfy and have everything you need, including free WiFi. The hotel comes on a half board basis - and you definitely won’t want to miss mealtimes in the restaurant. It has floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal stunning views of the valley – not to mention the food is fantastic too. The hotel bar is also a popular place to grab a drink in the evening, and it gets pretty lively at the weekends.

Snow-sure resort in the Arctic Circle, with plenty of traditional activities to try.
Step through the wardrobe into a snowy landscape straight from the pages of a children’s book. North of the Arctic Circle, Pyhä is a true winter wonderland for kids and adults alike.
A haven for beginners, Pyhä is known for its wide, confidence-building blue runs and great ski school. If you’ve never strapped on skis before, then this is a great place to learn. More advanced skiers will appreciate the deep, powdery snow and can test their skills on some of the best runs in Finland – including the Huttu-Ukko, which is used by the national ski team for race training. Plus, there are miles of off-piste and cross-country trails just begging to be explored.
Families love Pyhä and it’s easy to see why - there are slopes designed especially for families, as well as the Junior Park where the kids can practise jumps and tricks.
Away from the slopes, there’s a wish list full of winter activities to do. Drive a team of huskies through snow-covered forests, race snowmobiles across the frozen tundra or snuggle up in the back of a reindeer-pulled sleigh. And of course, a visit to Santa’s secret cottage is guaranteed to make any child’s Christmas.
There's no Crystal rep based in Pyhä, but support is available 24/7 by phone, email or Twitter. Check out your info pack or the Ski Explorer app for details on local activities and our resort tips. We’ll send by email any vouchers if you've pre-booked lift passes, equipment hire or tuition, and give you information on how to pick up your gear so you’re ready for the mountain.
All holidays here are lift pass inclusive, meaning that everyone gets a lift pass within their package price, so you can get out onto the slopes for some snowy fun.
Pyhä itself is a small village so you can get a real taste for the traditions and culture of Finland. Mealtimes are always a treat, with everything from pizza to reindeer on offer. The après is pretty low-key – though there are several bars that offer live music and great drinks if you like things a bit louder. After a day on the mountain, what better way to relax that by heading back to your own cosy cabin in the woods and warming up in the sauna or in front of the log fire. If you prefer less rustic accommodation, the Hotel Pyhätunturi has all the modern comforts.
