Destination: Arctic Circle

Kakslauttanen Igloo Village

If you want to get a little closer to heaven, check into the Igloo Village at Hotel Kakslauttanen. Located in the outer reaches of Finland‘s Lapland, These glowing, pods are the perfect spot for gazing at celestial sphere. Guests may be even be fortunate enough to glimpse the magical Aurora Borealis.

Each of the 20 igloos are outfitted with the classic Nordic amenity, a personal sauna. The village features four restaurants and a full menu of outdoor activities from cross-country skiing and snowboarding, to snowmobiling and ice karting. If you’re feeling particularly pioneering, opt for a husky safari where you’ll be teamed up with six dogs (from a larger pack of 250) and a sled.

And, lest you get lonely out under the crystal-clear skies, Finland is home to Nokia and boasts coverage throughout the farthest reaches of the country.

  1. Sounds like a very cold adventure, but I would love to go with the huskies on a trip. Did you see the aurora or is that from a stock photo?

    • Unfortunately, I didn’t see the aurora. I was in Iceland in April, but missed it then. Natural phenomena can’t be predicted, which is what makes it so special. The beautiful photo was taken by Senior Airman Joshua Strang at Bear Lake, Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska.
