Family activity holiday including snowmobiling and husky safari

The resort of Iso Syöte is tucked away in central Finland, occupying the southernmost fells and encompassed by the pristine wilderness of the Syöte National Park. It is the ideal place for a winter adventure week in Finland, as its hills, plains, forests and frozen lakes create a playground for a variety of snow-based outdoor activities. During the course of your adventure week in Finland, you can try snowmobiling, kicksledding, husky sledding, snowshoeing, a reindeer sleigh ride and much more. Beginners needn’t worry, as full instructions and equipment are provided by the helpful guides.

Your accommodation for your adventure week in Finland is in one of the rustic log cabins at the Iso Syöte Hotel. Each cabin offers terrific views across the snow-dusted countryside, and the log fire and private sauna are a welcome sight when you return from a day enjoying the outdoors. The log cabins have fully equipped kitchenettes, but there is also a superb restaurant at the hotel, which serves delicious, high quality meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, made with locally sourced ingredients. The Iso Syöte Hotel offers one of the best winter activity breaks in Finland and it will be even more memorable if the Northern Lights appear.
