Trips to Iso-Syote

Iso-Syöte is the name of the southernmost fell in Finland and it sits adjacent to the Syöte National Park. The fell offers a wonderful panoramic viewpoint over the region, with excellent views of the surrounding wilderness and our guests always remark on the beauty of this area.

We operate holidays in both the summer and the winter here on the fell and each season offers its own unique charm.

During our Summer in the Finnish Fells holiday, you will be greeted by a beautiful and seemingly unending vista of trees and lakes. This is a wilderness that offers summer visitors a wealth of experiences and you will explore it as you try canoeing on the Pärjänjoki River, experience the addictive nature of Nordic walking, meet huskies during their summer break, hike in the forests and go fishing – a local obsession! The highlight of this holiday is the chance to witness the exceedingly long hours of daylight which grace the area in the summer months – darkness doesn’t ever really have control here during the summer with the golden glow remaining in the sky 24 hours a day.

This fell region is perhaps most well-known as a winter destination. It boasts some of the highest snowfall in Finland with up to 2 metres falling annually. The 432 metre fell is also a winter ski resort and has 15 pistes for guests who wish to combine skiing with other winter activities during their Artisan holiday.

Our winter holiday here is the Winter Adventure Taster Week, which does exactly what its name suggests – it offers you the chance to try all of the key winter activities. The itinerary includes a snowmobile safari, husky adventure, snowshoe walk, reindeer safari and ice fishing and you can choose between hotel of log cabin accommodation.

An added bonus of any holiday in this area is that the Syöte National Park is home to beautiful and diverse scenery such as forests, swamps, lakes and streams and is also rich with wildlife. Birdlife that can be witnessed 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.
