Kick back and relax atop Lapland’s southernmost fell, right next to its snowiest national park, Syöte, where the Northern Lights are a perpetual visitor.
Cloud-piercing Hotel Iso Syöte makes luxury holidays in winter wonderland a breeze with amenities comparable to five-star capital city skyscrapers – not what you’d expect to find in Finland’s vast subarctic wilderness. There's even an arctic spa with a hot tub, therapy pool, Finnish sauna, and steam bath to relax tired muscles after an activity-packed day on the slopes or bike trails.
Restaurant Hilltop packs a tasty punch. Located on the top floor, its views are almost as incredible as the dishes crafted in its kitchen, which combine international and northern flavours with local fell produce – such as reindeer, berries and mushrooms – offering a true taste of the forest.
Choose between boutique rooms, suave suites and authentic log cabins built from silver pine with earthy interiors that all make the most of the hotel’s unspoiled hilltop vistas. Wooden walls, plump furs and warm lighting promise to keep you cosy, and are a not-so-subtle ode to Lapland’s heritage. Some rooms feature a hot tub on the balcony and an open fireplace, too.
Not just a hotel, Iso Syöte offers activities galore straight from the doorstep. Snowmobile safaris, reindeer farm visits, husky sled excursions, ice fishing trips, snowshoe hikes...they really can do it all. With professional guides always on hand, there’s no better place from which to explore the Land of the Midnight Sun.
