Has your dream always been to witness the spirals of the northern lights? What if I told you that you can now view all this mystical glory right from your bed? This is the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland.
Here, you will spend your graceful days in a cutting edge glass igloo as you enjoy the various adventures in the beautiful arctic circle. The fact that the igloos are made of quality thermal glass, you will always have the best-revered view possible as you won’t have to deal with frost. Inside your beautiful room, it will always be room temperature no matter how cold it is outside.
To many, this hotel is also known as the Igloo village. However, the places are only open from December to January. If you are planning a trip to this place, you have to make it as early as possible. And that’s not all, the place has so much more to offer.

Activities To Engage In?
This hotel also has the largest smoke sauna that you will ever find in the world. In that, you will get a chance to indulge in a very luxurious sauna enjoying the heat while the temperatures outside tumble to as low as -30 degrees Celsius.
At the same time, you can get the chance to enjoy a wide variety of snowshoeing activities and cross country skiing. For the daring folks, here is a chance for you to experience ice-swimming.
During the summer period, you can also consider travelling to the Inari resort that is located in a very remote island that is in the middle of the lake. This is without forgetting that you will be having a glass roofed cocktail bar that has been build halfway up a tree.
The best part about this resort is the digital detox that comes with your stay.
Although there is a Wi-Fi connection in the reception, the Igloos are without. How about a few weeks to focus on yourself, away from all the pressure that comes with online interactions? We all need that after a rough 2020. What are you waiting for?
