Choose from three types of accommodation - ask our Finland specialists for prices.
Nestled between the snow-draped trees of the forest, these enchanting thermal-glass domes feature in almost every guide to the word’s best unique accommodation. Providing all the magic of sleeping under the night sky without braving the elements, each two-person igloo is a cosy, private stargazing capsule with it’s own reclining bed, toilet and hand basin. Only available during the aurora season, these all-glass pods are ideal for a romantic northern lights break. Hotel facilities including showers are just a short walk away. An extra children’s bed can be added to the dome on request.
Offering the best of both worlds, Kakslauttanen’s sixteen Kelo-Glass Igloos combine the comforting warmth of a wooden cabin and the sensational skyward views of a glass igloo. Ideal for families, each cosy cabin sleeps up to six people and provides a winter home-away-from-home with its own private sauna, bathroom and kitchenette. Attached to each kelo-wood cabin is a glass igloo – take it in turns to sleep under the stars and keep watch for the northern lights flickering overhead. After a magical day exploring the surrounding winter wonderland, warm up in front of the cabin’s roaring log fire.
Built from the huge kelo pines native to Finnish Lapland, each rustic wooden cabin can sleep up to four people, with one double bed and one set of bunk beds. Hidden amongst the Lappish trees, these snug little chalets are ideal for a digital detox, with a roaring log fire and private sauna taking the place of television and wifi. Each cabin is fully equipped with kitchenette and bathroom, making them the perfect retreat for families after a busy day on the snow. Upgrade to a larger cabin for an extra sofa bed and bathroom, or request the Queen Suite or Wedding Chamber for a special occasion.
