Watch the starry sky from inside a glass igloo

5 Days From £1740

Watch the starry sky from inside a glass igloo

Hotel Kakslauttanen can be found nestled among the picturesque fells of Sarriselka in Finnish Lapland. Pristine snow dusts the rooftops of charming log cabins and rows of scented pine trees are gently illuminated by a warm orange glow. Igloo Village in Kakslauttanen is a remarkable setting and if you stay overnight in a glass igloo the Northern Lights may just perform their colourful dance for you. Spend three nights in a rustic log cabin, each equipped with a delightful fireplace and sauna, and there is even a tranquil garden area where you can wrap up warm and await the appearance of the Aurora Borealis.

Igloo Village is also home to an incredible ice bar and snow chapel and for visitors with a real sense of fun, Santa’s Resort is a wonderful place to visit. Santa’s house, Gold Creek and Smith Elf Forge are all beautifully decorated with ambient fairy lights. When you stay in a glass igloo on a Northern Lights holiday enjoy an exhilarating husky safari through the breathtaking wilderness and go on an exciting snowmobile safari.
