Kurula’s – Hidden from Time

The property dates back 50 years, to a time when reaching the fells took some effort. But there was a reward: your senses awakened as time stood still in the majestic landscape.

You could truly take time off.

Kurula’s is a modern approach to providing that same sense of leisure and wonder in the ancient fells and the beautiful shores of Lake Pyhäjärvi.

New Experience Concept

We want to provide a premium package that combines top-quality hotel accommodation in a unique location with the best activities in Lapland. Our experiences allow you to enjoy the lake and surrounding fells in all seasons.

Kurula’s is surrounded by the pure nature of Lapland.
We are the only hotel at Pyhä providing both lakefront views among the fells as well as easy access to the ski lifts and hiking trails. In addition to our excellent location and premium accommodation, our customers can trust us to guide them to the best local activities and natural wonders.

Our sincere wish is to introduce you to the same ancient charm, Pyhä Magic, which has kept us coming back again and again for decades.


Kurula’s location at Pyhä is unique. The resort is located right next to Lake Pyhäjärvi, only a short walk from the ski lifts, hiking trails and the oldest national park in Finland.

The main lodge has 17 spacious premium suites. The suites have magnificent views of the lake and fells. All activities as well as the serene lake are right outside the door.
The main hub houses our reception, dining room, bar, lounge and conference room where our guests are welcome to relax over snacks or a drink. At the lakeside, you will find our exclusive sauna and hot tub.

Kurula’s is designed with nature in mind. The energy-efficient resort blends in with the forest and uses geothermal energy from the lake for heating.

Unique Experiences

We introduce you the Lohkare sauna by Tingander,  Amethyst edition.

Our lakeside sauna is uniquely handcrafted to tell a visual story about its surroundings. The way Lohkare is carved from the wood is an artform in itself. Beautiful Luosto amethysts gems have been the inspiration for the design of our masterpiece.  

Naturally, we also provide all other traditional activities you would expect in Lapland, such as husky and reindeer safaris, northern light hunting and visits with Santa Claus.

We will guide our customers to the best local activities and natural wonders – in all seasons. We also want our guests to slow down and spend time in the glorious nature around us, and our experience packages are planned accordingly.
Pyhä is located in Eastern Lapland, next to the oldest national park in Finland, Pyhä-Luosto. Rovaniemi railway station and airport can be reached in only 90 minutes by car. Both have great bus connections to Pyhä.
