GLASS IGLOOS

Nestled in the wilderness near Finland's Urho Kekkonen National Park, Hotel Kakslauttanen has one of the Arctic Circle's best views of the Aurora Borealis. The sparse trees and complete lack of light pollution reveal millions of stars each night, and during the peak winter months the location offers incredible views of the Northern Lights from the warmth and comfort of their own hut.

Each glass igloo is fitted with thermal glass walls and ceilings, that insulate the interior to keep it warm and cozy at night. The glass also contains a frost preventative, maintaining crystal clear panoramic views even when temperatures outside drop to -22 degrees fahrenheit. Fitted for two people, the igloos are small enough to be efficiently heated without consuming too much energy and come complete with a toilet and luxury beds. Every morning there is also a sauna and a possibility to swim in an ice hole nearby.
