Iso-Syöte is the name of the southernmost fell in Finland that lies adjacent to the Syöte National Park. The fell offers a wonderful panoramic viewpoint over the region, with excellent views of the surrounding wilderness.

If you are travelling to this destination on one of our summer trips, you will be greeted by a beautiful vista of trees, lakes and streams which you can explore on hikes, canoe trips and more. During the long summer days, you can really make the most of your time here.

The destination is most well-known however as a winter location and it benefits from having some of the best snowfall in Finland with up to 2m annually. At 432 metres high the fell is also a very well-known ski resort and has 15 pistes for guests to explore with slopes for both beginners and advanced skiers. The cold temperatures lead to perfect light powdery snow conditions throughout the winter season. This also makes the slopes a snowboarder's paradise with two dedicated snowboarding zones with boxes and rails for anyone wishing to practise some tricks.

In the winter the region is also home to over 120km of cross-country ski trails and in the past was the host of the Finnish National Championships.

The Syöte National Park is home to beautiful and diverse scenery such as forests, swamps, lakes and streams and is also rich with wildlife. Birds here include the white-tailed eagle, Siberian jay and black woodpecker whilst mammals that have been spotted here include wolverine, otter and lynx. The park is also known to be home to brown bears and wolves but these are seen infrequently (indeed bears will hibernate throughout the winter!).

There are hunting traditions here which date back thousands of years and the Sámi reindeer herders have found their home here since the 1700s. This rich history is evident throughout and you will likely gain a wonderful insight into it during your stay.
