Lapland in a glass igloo

Take in the Northern Lights in the crisp, cold night air as you snuggle up in your cosy glass igloo.

Wow. That’ll be the first word you say when you step into your very own Lapland glass igloo for the night. Get set to sleep under the stars. You’ll be away from light pollution so the inky night sky will be as clear as day. You are most likely to see the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, from November to April. Do book early as these Lapland treasures are taken up very quickly.

It is a truly unique way to see the natural wonders that Lapland has to offer. The glass igloos blend in seamlessly with the landscape, but it’s easy to find the way to your accommodation by following the paths fashioned in the snow. You’ll notice the quaint door which helps to minimise the heat loss as you enter; just make sure you mind your head!

Glass igloos couldn’t be better for snuggling up with the one you love and experiencing the Northern Lights. The beds provided in the igloo not only provide luxurious comfort, but recline to provide better angles to scan the sky for the auroras. Although winter temperatures in Lapland can reach as low as -30C, you’ll have the delight of experiencing the Finnish forest in your own cosy space.

Kelo-glass igloos are also available that can sleep six, allowing you to share the once in a lifetime experience with a group of your closest friends or family. The log chalets provide a living space, with an igloo sleeping enclosure to provide the best view of the night sky. The logs crackling on the hearth create the type of atmosphere and smells that only a fireplace can. The private sauna will soon warm you up when you return after a long day out in the crisp Lappish snow. Make sure you use the kitchenette to help you prepare all the tasty nibbles you’ll need for a session of aurora gazing.

There’s really no better place on earth to stay if you’re looking for the perfect Northern Lights experience without having to freeze your fingers and toes off in the cold. Away from artificial lights, you’ll have the ideal opportunity to see the vibrant aural wisps against the back drop of the shimmering stars. You won’t want to leave even for a second, so you’ll find facilities to make a piping hot cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate to enjoy whilst you relax and take in the beautiful landscape.

Glass igloos provide a truly incomparable experience, to the extent that some famous household names have it on their bucket list! Isn’t it about time you ticked it off yours?
