Nestled among vast forests and fells, Luosto represents a small idyllic resort village set on the edge of Pyha-Luosto National Park.
On the 21st (Wed), go deep underground at Amethyst Mine Lapland, then identify plant and animal life at Kopara Reindeer Park, and then do some two-wheel cruising with Luosto Adventures.

To find photos, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Luosto holiday builder site.

Guadalajara, Mexico to Luosto is an approximately 28- hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Guadalajara to Luosto due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Guadalajara in August, expect Luosto to be a bit cooler, temps between 20°C and 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) early enough to drive to Saariselka.
