For winter 2013-14, Inghams has expanded its hugely popular Lapland programme and introduced the unspoilt resort of Pyhä (pronounced Poo-ha). Set in Finland’s oldest national park, this authentic resort offers some of the best skiing in Finland as well as a wide choice of exciting excursions from Ice Climbing to reindeer and husky safaris.
Situated just north of the Arctic Circle, the unspoilt resort of Pyhä is surrounded by spectacular arctic scenery. Pyhä is the fourth Finnish resort in the operator’s programme along with Levi, Ylläs and Saariselkä and is exclusive to Inghams.
For first time skiers and families, Pyhä is the perfect place to learn to ski and improve technique with easily accessible beginner slopes and confidence building blue runs. Previously awarded Finnish Ski Resort of the Year the ski area has seen heavy investment in recent years with the new Polar Express 6-seater chairlift which whisks skiers and snowboarders to tree lined slopes, and a FunPark for boarders and freestyle skiers. Pyhä also offers some of the most challenging slopes in Finland including Huttu-Ukko, used by the Finnish Ski Team for race training.
For a truly unique experience Inghams guests can ride on a Snow-cat to visit an Arctic Amethyst Mine, taking home their very own lucky amethyst. The more adventurous can try Ice Climbing on the Tajukangas ice fall.
One of the best ways to experience this peaceful wilderness is to ski cross-country along the 150km of trails or take an exhilarating 20km Snowmobile Safari on a two hour excursion through breathtaking scenery.
>Inghams offers a range of affordable accommodation in Pyhä from a half board stay at the recently renovated 3.5* Pyhätunturi Hotel with its ski in, ski out location from £670 per person per week to the romantic 4* Pyhä Log Cabins set in an idyllic wooded location from just £474 per person per week on a self catering basis. Flights are from Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester to Kittila.
Hugh Walton, Executive Director, Inghams said “Inghams is very excited to add the new resort of Pyhä to our hugely popular Lapland programme. Inghams guests can ski the best slopes in Finland as well as choose from adrenaline pumping activities from Ice Climbing and snowmobile safaris to cross country skiing in beautiful scenery all at an affordable price.”
