Romantic break in an igloo village in Northern Finland
Prices from £969 per person
Period: January – April
Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is located high up above the Arctic Circle, in the north-east corner of Finnish Lapland. This secluded log cabin village is the ultimate location for an arctic romantic break. As a highlight of your stay, you will overnight in either a snow or glass igloo – both options provide an unforgettable experience!
Every winter several structures are built from ice and snow near the log cabin village: these are the Ice Gallery, the Bar made of Ice, the Ice Chapel and the World’s Largest Snow Restaurant. Every December, the best ice sculptors in the world come to Kakslauttanen to participate in the international ice-sculpting week which takes place at the Ice Gallery and Arctic Resort; the creations remain on view during the rest of winter.
During your three-night stay at Kakslauttanen you can try exhilarating winter safaris by reindeer, husky, and snowmobile or take part in an ice/snow rally. The choice is yours!
All 31 high quality log cabins are located near the main restaurant and reception building, although they are sufficiently far apart from each other to ensure peace and tranquility for every customer. Each cottage is very comfortable, and equipped with shower/toilet, kitchenette, own sauna and fireplace.
The arctic resort is located in close proximity to the log cabin area. In addition to a warm down sleeping bag, woollen socks and hood are also provided. Though temperatures outside may sink to below – 30 C the temperature inside the snow igloos constantly remain between -3 C and -6 C so that you will never feel cold. That’s a promise! The snow igloos are for 1-5 persons. Imagine yourself sleeping in an igloo made of snow: It is totally quiet and lights inside the ice illuminate the igloo.
After the night in an igloo it is time for a sauna. The saunas and showers next to the igloo resort are open every morning. From the sauna it is also possible to dip to a hole in the ice in the river.
It is also possible to stay in a glass igloo. The glass igloos have been built from a very special thermo glass. For this reason, the temperature inside an igloo remains constant at normal room temperature. This also prevents the glass from becoming frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature drops below -30C.
To optimise the comfort of the guest, these igloos come complete with a toilet and luxury beds. The glass igloos are for up to 2 persons. Every morning there is also a sauna and a possibility to swim in an ice hole nearby.
