Syöte National Park
Surrounding the ski resort, Syöte National Park covers almost 300 km2 of forests and fells, with many mires of different types. Most are North Ostrobothnian aapa bogs, but some are hanging bogs unique to the region. The region claims the oldest dated rock formations in the EU, in Siuruankylä, where the trondhjemite gneiss has been aged to 3.5 billion years.
The unique landscape of Syöte National Park, with its rugged hills, special bogs on hill tops and slopes, and its chain of old-growth spruce forests, creates an ideal setting for hikers and mountain bikers, while offering great opportunities for cross-country skiing and snowshoe excursions – there are 120 km well-groomed cross-country skiing tracks and hiking trails in the region. Visitors can also enjoy snowmobile safaris, visit husky farms and try their hand at husky sledding, and visit reindeer farms for a more relaxed reindeer sleigh ride through the forests in this untouched wilderness.
