The stunning igloo village at Hotel Kakslauttanen.
Sure Hotel Kakslauttanen offers guests many amenities you find at thousands of hotels around the world. Queen suites, cabins with hot tubs and a few restaurant options. But we’re positive that’s not why people travel 1085 Km from Helsinki, 250 km above the Arctic Circle in the Finnish part of Lapland for a holiday. Especially in the cold of winter.
We’d guess, people travel to this part of the world to stay in one of these.
In Igloo Village there are 20 glass igloos, 60 beds in snow igloos and an one of a kind glass kota. The snow restaurant provides seating for 50-150 people. Igloo Village is open each year between December and January depending on the weather conditions and stays open until the end of April.
Imagine yourself sleeping completely surrounded by snow
The silence is enchanting and lights inside the ice cast mysterious shadows on the snow walls of the Snow Igloos. Even though the temperature inside stays always between -3°C and -6°C, the breathtaking atmosphere lulls you into a deep, comfortable sleep in your warm down sleeping bag.
