Igloo Lust

I’m in love with an igloo. Words I never thought would leave my mouth.

The Igloo Village of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland has 20 thermal glass igloos, where visitors can enjoy incredible views of the Aurora Borealis from the warmth and comfort of their own hut.

This place has one of the Arctic Circle’s best views of the lit sky with its sparse trees and complete lack of light pollution, revealing millions of stars each night. Each glass igloo fits two and has thermal glass walls and ceilings to keep it warm and cozy at night – I’m not too sure how warm and cozy though.

The main hotel also includes the world’s largest smoke sauna complete with its own restaurant, and an ice bar and snow chapel that is built fresh every winter. For the more adventurous, the hotel also offers lodging in a dozen traditional igloos made of ice. Those are not recommended in my option, they get down to -6 degrees celcius!

Definitely going on my bucket list.

    1. Thank you @sartenada, I’ll have to say the same about your country! As an Aussie, we always boast about our sunsets but that’s nothing compared to that view. Bliss.
