Full description

This lofty resort is perched on a felltop in Syote National Park, around 150km below the Arctic Circle. Not only are the views spectacular, but the big skies and lack of artificial light pollution bode well for sightings of the aurora borealis. As an added bonus, this part of Finland often receives bumper snowfalls, causing trees to bow under the weight and creating a wonderland for winter activities.
