Overview

Perched on a felltop with panoramic views over the lakes and forests of Syote National Park in Finnish Lapland, this secluded resort complete with a fairy tale covering of thick snow, has excellent northern lights potential and a great range of accommodation and activities. Choose from well-appointed hotels rooms, stylish suites with private saunas and outdoor jacuzzis, cottages and traditional log cabins.

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.
