Iso Syote


Iso Syote suffered a major fire on 21 December 2018, destroying parts of the main building including reception, restaurant, spa, pool and Bears Cave suite. Hotel Rooms & Suites were damaged by fire, smoke or water.  The Eagle View was not damaged but is out of use. All persons were evacuated safely. The hotel continued to operate for the 2018-19 winter season with guest accommodation in Kelo & Fell Top Cottages.  

Rooms and suites are now being renovated and will be ready for December 2019. The building work of the new hotel restaurant and reception began in May 2019 and come December, restaurant services will be provided either in Romekievari ski restaurant or the new hotel restaurant, if completed by then.


Located just 150km below the Arctic Circle and in an enviable position on top of Lapland's southernmost fjell, Iso Syote is the perfect location from which to experience the beauty of Finland in winter.

Spacious Fell Top Cottages are ideal for larger groups and families travelling together, complete with their own sauna and fireplace.  Or, for something a little more traditional, the cosy Kelo Log Cabins are built in authentic Finnish style and also feature a private sauna and fireplace.

A host of winter adventures await, from snowmobiling and snowshoeing to exciting husky safaris. 12 illuminated ski slopes and 120km of cross-country ski-track are also at your disposal, together with a family sledding hill located close to the cottages. 

At the end of each busy day, relax in your own private sauna and enjoy high quality food at Romekievari Restaurant where you can choose from the extensive buffet style options or sample some local delicacies from the a la carte menu.
