Winter wonderland in Finland

Five star glass igloo

Witnessing the Northern Lights is pretty high up on most people’s bucket lists; that’s because actually achieving it, however, is easier said than done. Increase your chances by spending the night in a glass igloo with clear views of north Finland’s night sky – the standard accommodation at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. One of the original Finnish Lapland hotels, there’s more to do than lie horizontally gazing upwards through your transparent ceiling at the aurora borealis. Husky rides, reindeer safaris, snowmobiles, horse riding and ice shing are all options to while away the time in this back- to-nature, snowy setting.

Although the temperature drops to -30 ° C, it is kept in a glass needle at a comfortable 21 ° C

Romantic log cabins, smoke saunas and ice swimming in the resort’s lake are all unique experiences that further remove you from city life, while a 15-minute drive gives you access to nearby ski slopes. Situated 30 minutes from the nearest airport in Ivalo, the area is rich with local Sammi culture, and there’s no better way to experience it first hand than with a Lemmenjoki river cruise though Finland’s biggest national park. If you get caught up in the fairy-tale romance of the place, the resort has its own ice chapel for weddings, with the happy couple whisked to its entrance on a reindeer-drawn sleigh. www.kakslauttanen.fi
