Situated in the Lappish countryside on a hilltop with a panoramic view across forest, hills, lakes and rivers, Hotel Iso-Syote is the ideal Finnish retreat. Located on the top of a hill on the southernmost fell of Lapland, the hotel is built on the highest point in the area meaning it has a unique and picturesque setting with splendid views in all directions.
There are 30 double rooms at the hotel, which have a cool and funky design. We highly recommend the Eagle’s View Suite that is located on the south corner of the hotel wing and is entirely made from glass giving you a unique chance to admire the midnight sun in summer or gaze at millions of stars in winter. Divided over two floors, it has a private Jacuzzi and a luxury bathroom with private sauna. Other accommodation includes Fell Top Cottages and Kelo Cottages that are built in a traditional Finnish Kelo style.
The Panorama Restaurant has spectacular views of the surrounding fell. The head chef Arto Posio specialises in local delicacies, and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner alongside a range of tasteful wines. For a wilderness experience, dine in a Lappish Kota. After a day of skiing, visit the Ski Restaurant – an on piste restaurant located at the bottom of the hill. For evening drinks, the Snapsibaari Shot Bar serves drinks that are accompanied by a DJ.
For a quintessentially Finnish experience, visit the hotel’s sauna, which is heated daily. There is even the option of the authentic smoke sauna that is near the Lappish Kota and can be heated on request for small groups. There is also a heated swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, massages and a range of facial, hand and foot treatments.
