Hotel Iso-Syöte & cottages

Stay on top

Hotel Iso-Syöte is surrounded by a unique scenery on top of Iso-Syöte fell. Ski tracks and slopes are accessible almost from the doorstep, and you might even see a fox or a rabbit running by.

We have 20 comfortable double rooms and 12 romantic suites, 20 traditional kelo cabins within a short walk from the hotel and slopes, and 16 modern log cottages right next to the hotel.


Spend an evening at the Panorama Restaurant enjoying good food and company! Some weekends dance bands may keep you entertained until the small hours, after which you can get a good night sleep in the comfortable bed in your accommodation!


The hotel has 20 double rooms. All rooms are with two separate beds and equipped with bathroom (shower and toilet) and tv. There is room for one extra bed in each room. One room is  suitable for disabled persons using a wheelchair.

Eagle’s View Suite

A spacious, luxurious suite is built around an old kelo tree in two floors. On the ground floor is the living room with a cozy fireplace to share a drink and some special moments together, seats and sofa’s and bathroom with own private sauna. The branches of the tree hold the “nest” where the bed is placed. And on this floor is the jacuzzi situated as well. Lying on the bed or while enjoying a relaxing bath in the jacuzzi you can overlook the unspoiled nature all around you, like an eagle, admire the scenery and almost touch the sky… This suite was chosen among the world’s 10 most romantic hotel rooms by The Telegraph magazine.

Bear Cave Suite

Enjoy the Bear Cave suite’s king size double bed and two saunas, a Turkish steam sauna and a traditional Finnish sauna. The old fireplace in the living area is made of natural stone and dates back to the early 80’s when the hotel was built. Next to the fireplace awaits a huge sofa and your own private jacuzzi for you to climb in and relax.

From the living area and private terrace there is a beautiful view to the nature around and a free view towards the north to spot the northernlights – or to enjoy the scenery overlooking the snow covered trees in the valley. Ski slopes are only a few steps away!

In addition, the Bear Cave suite has a kitchenette with a fridge and a kettle, a large flat screen TV with Soundbar, two toilets, double shower and extra bed option for two.

Aurora View Suites

The 10 Aurora suites are divided in two floors. The glass facade and the balcony create admirable views to the sky above to watch the stars and northern lights as well as towards the snow covered forest and valley below.

First floor with a seating area, bathroom with shower, toilet and private sauna.
