Kakslauttanen Glass Igloo to watch northern lights

Get immersed into the world of the Glass igloos. Admire the northern lights from glass igloos in the middle of the wilderness. Kakslauttanen is a family hotel in Finnish Lapland, 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.

Kakslauttanen is one of the world’s best places for watching the northern lights. The aurora season lasts from late August until the end of April. It was the glass igloos and log cabins that put us on the world map. Now, here in the middle of the wilderness, we have a lot more in store, including Santa’s entire world. Get to know the magic of the world’s best kept secret. Although we are far from it all, our place is easy to reach. The nearest international airport is in Ivalo, just a 30-minute ride away.

Admire the northern lights and the twinkling of the bright starry sky in one of our glass igloos – either with a group of friends, or snuggled up romantically with your loved one. The two-person igloos include a toilet and the option of an extra bed. Saunas and showers are available in separate buildings. The four-person igloos include their own toilet and shower. The glass igloos are available to book all through the northern lights season, beginning from around 20 August until the end of April.

The polar night, or kaamos, is a magical period in Lapland. The blue light of twilight, metres and metres of snow, and extreme frost – this is what the heart of winter is made of. In January, when the sun finally rises after its long retreat, the days quickly grow longer. What could soothe the soul more than skiing on densely packed snow or taking a snowmobile out in the crisp, bright winter sunshine?
