Finland has always provided suggestive landscapes and experiences, and there are many opportunities to dive yourself in local culture, including sleeping in an igloo.
The Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is one of the best known hotels, and offers tourists the chance to watch the boreal sunrise or, in the summer months, the typical “midnight sun“, comfortably in their own bed. The structure, in fact, consists of igloos in thermal glass , which makes interior of a constant pleasant temperature, and it is located in a beautiful place distant from light pollution and dense vegetation, which makes possible to observe all the beauties that the sky has to offer.
In the Saariselkä Fell area, in Finnish Lapland, and right next to Urho Kekkonen National Park, the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort also has classic chalets, and a hotel made entirely of snow and ice, as well as a large “smoke sauna”, a particular type of Finnish sauna where the smoke produced from dried and aromatic woods, and circulating freely in the environment, gives a pleasing scent. In winter, besides the glass igloos, those who are particularly courageous can also choose to stay in a “true” igloo, strictly made of snow like the traditional ones in which Eskimos live. The structure also deals with the organization of snowmobiling tours, and husky and reindeer excursions, which will give more adventure to your stay in Finland.
More central and just 25 minutes drive from the heart of Rovaniemi, there is Arctic Glass Igloos, much appreciated, as well as the already mentioned glass igloos, also for the outdoor hot tub and the sauna that overlooks the Lake Lehtojärvi, which makes the structure ideal for young couples. So to enjoy the wonders that Finland has to offer, staying in igloos is definitely a unique and fun alternative to the usual hotel rooms.
