Glass igloos1

Sleep under the Northern Lights in a glass igloo

Lapland isn't just for Christmas, and in Finland the wintry fun there continues until April.

For the ultimate European holiday during the winter, the Hotel Kakslauttanen offers stays in an igloo village where glass ceilings ensure your bed is a front row seat should the Northern Lights put in an appearance. 

The resort in the Arctic Circle has two types of igloo stay on offer, depending on your cold threshold. The traditional snow igloos are -3 to -6 degrees inside – surprisingly snug for a place where the outside temperatures drop to -30°. The owners promise treats like the down sleeping bags, wool socks and hoods that they provide will prevent you from feeling cold.



For those less inclined to relax in a blizzard, the modern glass igloos are a less extreme option. Though in traditional igloo shape, these pods – complete with toilets and posh beds - are maintained at normal room temperature thanks to the clever design of the thermal glass.



Aside from appreciating the snowy views across Finland's Urho Kekkonen National Park and revelling in the majesty of the Aurora Borealis (which appear in the region between August and late April each year), there's plenty for the more active visitors to enjoy. You can combine your stay with trips on offer like ice swimming, a husky or reindeer safari, ice-karting, or skiing nearby.

If you've always wanted to try ice-sculpting, this is the place to get started with two-hour lessons available. If you've never particularly wanted to try ice sculpting, that's OK too – you can just inspect the fruit of the professional's labour in the ice gallery.

The complex also boasts a chapel made of snow and the world's largest smoke sauna which seats 150 people at a time and has its own restaurant!
