Unbelievable hotels: Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort AKA The Igloo Hotel

Taylor Lorenz 12 October 2017

Experience the Northern Lights from the inside of a glass igloo.

Hotel name: Kakslauttanen Arctic Hotel

Where: Finnish Lapland, Finland

What’s unique about this property:

The Arctic Circle itself is an incredible place, but pair it with the Northern Lights and a stay at Kakslauttanen Arctic Hotel and you have a holiday unlike any other.

Choose between eight different kinds of accommodation, including a wedding chamber and glass igloos complete with bed, bathroom and views of the sky as the lights dance across it.

Other options include log chalets, kelo-glass igloos and even snow igloos which allow you to experience the intense temperatures in the warmth of a down sleeping bag surrounded by snow.

What is there to do in the area?

In winter, try a husky, reindeer, snow mobile, snow tank, riding or ice fishing safari. Go aurora hunting, cross country or downhill skiing and snowboarding.

In autumn try horse safaris, fishing trips, husky visits, a visit to the national park, mountain biking, gold panning and more.

Summer includes much of the same activities as autumn but also hiking and midnight sun spotting.

What do other people say?

Reviewed mainly by families and couples, many rave about the hotel and it’s unique experience claiming that it is a "bucket list destination that it will not disappoint."

However other reviewers on TripAdvisor claims that it is "glorified camping" and recent reviews mention that construction is currently underway.

Overall reviews are good with top ratings for staff and views.
