Syöte National Park
The Syöte National Park invites you on an adventure!
The Syöte National Park was established in 2000 in order to protect the valuable natural features of the wooded hills. In the deep wilderness of the national park, many threatened species, such as the Siberian flying squirrel, the golden eagle, large carnivore species, and the delicate yellow marsh saxifrage have a chance to thrive. There are hundreds of kilometres of trails in the Syöte National Park, in all seasons.
The Syöte Visitor Centre is a must to visit when going on a holiday in the Syöte area.
The Syöte Visitor Centre, which is located deep in an old-growth forest, boasts a fascinating exhibition that presents the natural features and cultural history of the area. The visitor centre provides up-to-date hiking tips, making it easy to have an active holiday in this landscape of wooded hills. Some of them are listed above.
Syöte National Park for families
From Syöte Visitor Centre you can rent snow shoes, a child backpack carrier and a child pulling sledge for winter fun. The snow covered spruces are magnificently beautiful and looks a bit like a troll. Take a walk in one of our nice day trip huts like Annintupa. Explore Syöte with all senses!
Say yes to adventure
The wild wooded hills of Syöte provide an ideal setting for many adventures. Ski through the magical snow-covered winter forests, or pedal up and down along the park’s fine fatbiking routes. The log cabin sauna at Ahmatupa in the heart of the park is a great place to soothe your body and soul. Go on an active holiday over the wooded hills and enjoy outdoor life!
