Pirates, picture this: snow falls softly on the ground, the night sky is shining with the lights of the Aurora, and reindeer are preparing to drift into sleep. It's in this enchanting setting where you'll find this extraordinary hotel...
Open all year round to guests, Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is located in Finland. However, we believe that winter provides the best attractions to guests hoping to soak up some atmospheric magic.
You can choose accomodation in a glass igloo or traditional wooden house. Each igloo comes with transparent windows and plush beds for relaxing. If you prefer to go seriously hard with your relaxation, some igloos even come with a private sauna in the bathroom!
These cottages come with kitchen equipment, a seating area, a fireplace and a sauna. They also have WiFi - perfect for posting this unique experience to the 'gram!
In addition to organised reindeer and husky sledges, guests can also ride snowmobiles, rent cross-country skis, Nordic walking poles and snowshoes.
For those who might be interested, the hotel also organises weddings! A snow chapel has been built especially for newlyweds, with a reindeer team to take them to the alter. We can't think of anything more special than saying "I do" beneath the Northern Lights...
The hotel is located in the Saariselkä Fell region, in the Finnish part of Lapland. The Urho Kekkonen National Park is closeby to the resort, plus only 250km from the Arctic Circle!
If you're just as enchanted as we are by this hotel, we don't blame you.
