Imagine sleeping in a glass igloo in the dead of winter, in Finland, while viewing the Northern Lights outside your humble little shelter. Well, that’s exactly what you could do at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. Now, THIS is COOL! It kind of looks like something out of a Hallmark movie, doesn’t it?
Kakslauttanen has several different accommodations in their winter paradise, from the incredible glass igloos in the igloo village to log chalets. Or, for the best of both worlds, a combination of the two. They also have cozy snow igloos and larger log chalets from which to enjoy a holiday with the family.
“…Hotel Kakslauttanen is located in the Saariselkä fell area amidst beautiful Lapland scenery in the vicinity if Urho Kekkonen National Park. ~ Hotel Kakslauttanen
“…Glass igloo provides an one of a kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and millions of stars of the crystal clear sky in a comfortable room temperature. Built from a special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays a normal level. It also prevents the glass from not getting white frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds…” ~ Hotel Kakslauttanen
Two-person igloos include a bathroom and the option of an extra bed if you’re visiting with kids or friends. Saunas and showers are available in nearby buildings. Four-person igloos are also available, which include their own shower.
You can’t get much better than this, or much closer to nature.
The glass igloos are available to rent throughout the Northern Lights season – from about the end of August to the end of April.
