Boutique Ski Hotel

Ski and Play at Hotel Iso Syote in Finnish Lapland

Ski resort Iso-Syote has been voted the best Ski Resort in Finland on several occasions, the most recent in 2022. It is located in the southernmost fell in Finland where there are 17 fabulous slopes suitable for first-time skiers or those at an advanced level - there is a slope waiting for you! The resort is surrounded by the Syote National Park and has the biggest winter snowfall in the whole of Finland, making it the ideal destination to try the wide range of skiing options together with a selection of other winter activities, making this resort a fantastic choice for travellers wanting the best of both worlds.

The Hotel Iso-Syote has an elevated position on top of the fell, with views overlooking the slopes on one side and the vast snowy landscape below. With excellent facilities including the Arctic Spa, comfortable accommodations options, several winter activities and easy access to the ski slopes and cross-country trails, our flexible holiday allows you to pick and choose the best combination for your travel plans.

With plenty of day-time fun to keep you busy, the winter season also brings night-time potential to view the magical Northern Lights for the ultimate holiday experience.
