Huttu-Ukko art route

The Feel the Peak experience also includes the Huttu-Ukko art route completed in autumn 2019. You will find the art route near the PyhäExpress lift and Restaurant Tsokka. Huttu-Ukko Art Route has been created in co-operation with a local artist Tapio Uusitalo and Pyhä Ski Resort. The majority of the art works are based on the local history, lifestyle, myths and beliefs.

Different seasons have been taken into account in the implementation of the art route. When winter comes, the snow covers the art works in a white glow until the spring sun melts the snow and reveals the art to its viewers again.
