Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

From a glass igloo you gaze up at the Northern Lights. In traditional log cabins you warm up after a day by snowmobile or husky. For an unusual experience you spend a night in a snow igloo. 

Wrapped in snow for half the year, Kakslauttanen is the most famous of Finland’s Arctic accommodations. It’s a resort, so don’t expect a really intimate or boutique feel. However, the quality and variety of accommodation options make Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort a natural choice for all kinds of visitors. 

Glass igloos are perfect for the Northern Lights, with inspiring views of the nighttime sky – choose them anytime between September and March. Large wooden chalets are quintessential Finland, good for families and smaller groups. Kelo-glass igloos really stand out as they mix both types of accommodation. So you get the comfort and space of a log chalet, with a glass igloo for an evening watching the sky. The snow igloos aren’t incredibly comfortable, but it’s an igloo in the Arctic! Consider one night in an igloo, then move to one of the other accommodations. 

While there are a lot of guests, there’s also a lot of space up here, so you can still enjoy privacy.
