Fjell Fun and Skiing

Play on and around the foothills of one of Finland’s most picturesque fjells, surrounded by the dense pine of the Syöte National Park, marked in winter with snow sculptures clinging to the trees in elaborate formations. Iso-Syöte’s unique position on the southern borders of Lapland makes it the ideal ‘ski-plus’ destination, where you can mix and match all manner of ski and safari activities.

Iso-Syöte
Iso-Syöte
Sitting on top of Lapland’s southernmost fjell is the village of Iso-Syöte, which is cloaked throughout the winter in deep, white snow. At its heart is the Iso- Syöte Hotel, complete with panoramic restaurant, Arctic Spa and bar. Flexible accommodation is the order of the day. Choose from simple standard twin rooms or picturesque and cosy 1-bedroomed Kelo pine cottages. The hotel also boasts modern 2-storey fjell top cottages which can sleep up to 8.
 
Finally consider spending a night in the snow igloo or upgrade to the magnificent Eagle View Suite, where the walls and roof are made of glass allowing uninterrupted views of the surrounding hills and a chance to  view the Northern Lights in comfort and style.
 
The hotel has created an ‘Arctic Spa’ complete with two spacious saunas, a swimming pool with massaging hydrojets and, for the ultimate experience, two outdoor Jacuzzi’s, which enjoy uninterrupted views of the snow-covered trees and starlit sky. There is a range of Arctic Spa Body & Beauty treatments also available.
 
Running down the side of the hotel are no fewer than 12 illuminated ski slopes. There are also half and quarter pipes, a snowboard park, children’s slopes and sledding hill. In other words, facilities for just about every level of experience.
