As one of the top selling agents in the UK for the Iso-Syöte resort in Finland, the Mighty Fine Company jetted off to this stunning fell region for some VIP treatment. Situated just below the Arctic Circle, staff at the Iso-Syöte resort were keen to give the travel experts a warm reception, albeit in freezing conditions.
(TRAVPR.COM)ENGLAND - February 24th, 2011 - The Iso-Syöte is certainly something for the people of Finland to be proud of as this unspoilt natural wilderness boasts some of the country’s heaviest snowfall and resembles a scene from picture postcards.
“When we first arrived at the Iso-Syöte resort we couldn’t believe our eyes. As we waded through deep pristine snow and admired the glistening snow sculptures that had formed on the branches of trees, we knew we had arrived in a real winter wonderland”, spoke Linda Gilmour from the Mighty Fine Company.
On arrival at the Iso-Syöte resort, staff from the Mighty Fine Company were whisked off to a traditional wilderness hut where they were treated to a delicious reindeer stew, a customary meal in these Arctic regions. This was just the start of two action-packed days. Although various ski slopes surround the Iso-Syöte resort, there was little time for Linda to practice her snowplough. A trip to the nearby reindeer farm was one of the first exciting excursions Linda embarked on and the hospitable reindeer herder, Virkunen, was keen to show off his magnificent animals. Passionate about the reindeer and Finland’s natural environment, Virkunen offered food and warm drinks inside his home whilst educating visitors about his intriguing lifestyle.
Linda enthused, “Virkunen was extremely passionate about his reindeer and it was a pleasure to learn about his way of life in these Arctic conditions, everyone was completely enthralled by his stories.”
After the fascinating cultural experience it was time for guests to explore the picturesque scenery on a speedy snowmobile. Zooming over frozen landscapes, the heated handlebars ensured passengers’ hands remained warm enough to control the powerful vehicles. The following day a steadier pace was taken on a snowshoe hike and guests were treated to hot berry juice and cookies.
Linda explained, “I have never experienced anything quite like it. The scenery is breathtaking, the people are extremely friendly and the activities are second to none.”
Currently at the Iso-Syöte resort there is a main hotel building which offers a range of facilities, comfortable rooms and outstanding views from the Panorama restaurant, whereas the fell top cottages and rustic Kelo cabins offer a more authentic Finnish experience. There are also rumours that the Iso-Syöte resort hopes to build an innovative and exclusively unique room, which would make an ideal honeymoon suite for newlyweds, by the end of 2011.
