  • So what's it like?

    We have put together some of our most popular activities in Iso-Syote, including a visit to Santa’s Cottage where you’ll meet Santa and his elves. This is available in one incredible package staying at the Hotel Iso-Syote.

    The Hotel Iso-Syote has just been voted Finland's Best Ski Boutique Hotel in the World Ski awards. It has been recently refurbished and is located at the top of the fell, with amazing views of the forests and valley below. The hotel restaurant not only serves excellent food and fine wines, but is one of the best places to try and get a glimpse of the northern lights. Being at the top of the fell, you can ski right from the door. Plus, all the activities start and finish at the hotel so it’s really easy for whatever you’re doing. The hotel also has an indoor swimming pool, two saunas and a children’s play area and at weekends there are occasional dance bands to keep you entertained.

You'll be taught a traditional song in Finnish and there will be cookies and drinks. Every child will be given a present and there's plenty of opportunity to take photographs. Before you leave, you can post a letter or card in the Post Office next door before you rejoin the coach back to Iso-Syote (duration of the programme is approx 5.5 hours.
