Lapland Igloo & Ice Hotel
5 Day Tour, from £1475 per person
For the ultimate Arctic experience, travel to Finnish Lapland and spend two nights in a glass igloo and one night in a hotel room carved from ice. Watch the northern lights paint ribbons of colour across the sky from the glass-ceilinged igloo, enjoy an extra chilled drink at the Ice Gallery bar and take part in exhilarating winter activities from snowmobiling to husky sledging. Speak to a Regent Holidays Lapland Specialist about including a visit to Finland's largest ski area, Levi, or trying cross-country skiing with an experienced guide.
Fly to Kittilä and transfer to Levi. Spend two nights in a Golden Crown glass igloo, located on the edge of a fell and surrounded by nature. Each glass-ceilinged igloo has a fully-equipped kitchenette, shower and toilet. At the centre of each is a motorised double bed from which you can watch the northern lights dancing across the night sky. Upgrade to a Premium Igloo for uninterrupted panoramic views across the snowy fell.
The flat area surrounding the fell is ideal for activities such as cross-country skiing, dog sledging and snowmobiling. Make use of a free day to take part in exhilarating winter activities and perhaps take an evening northern lights snowmobile safari before retreating to the igloo to drift off under the starry night sky. Speak to a Regent Holidays Lapland Specialist about including a visit to Finland's largest ski area, Levi, or trying cross-country skiing with an experienced guide. (B)
Check in to the Levi Ice Gallery for an overnight stay in an ice room. Each year the impressive snow castle is newly built for winter. Discover the fairytale snow hotel, snow chapel, ice bar and ice art gallery, and perhaps enjoy dinner by the fire in the Lappish Hut restaurant before snuggling into sleeping bags for a sub-zero night. Each magical ice room is individually decorated with ice sculptures, snow reliefs and lights. (B)
Perhaps pay an optional visit to the Luvattumaa River Spa before checking out. The natural spa’s hot and cold open-air baths, traditional sauna and ice sauna are the perfect way to rejuvenate body and soul. Transfer to the Hullo Poro (Crazy Reindeer) Hotel in the centre of Levi and spend the day at leisure. Perhaps take an optional ice fishing safari, travelling by snowmobile to a private fishing lake and drilling into the ice to fish for rainbow trout.
Don’t miss a final opportunity to search for the ethereal northern lights after dark. For an end-of-holiday treat, Regent recommends the legendary Lapland à la carte restaurant, Valkea Vaadin, in Levin Tori square, where Nordic game and fresh local fish are served in atmospheric Lappish style. (B)
