Have you ever wondered what it might be like to live in an igloo? Well, now you can experience it, even if it’s only for a night. Hotel Kakslauttanen is an igloo hotel that sits adjacent to Urho Kekkonen National Park in remote Lapland in northern Finland.
This one-of-a-kind property offers some of the most breathtaking views on the planet. Built of thermal glass that was designed to stay frost-free, you can watch the northern lights right from the comfort of your own bed in an igloo-shaped room from late August to late April.

You’re also practically guaranteed a peaceful night’s sleep with the snow muffling out any sounds from the outside world.
When the sun comes up, the gorgeous winter wonderland with bright blue skies make for pretty spectacular views as well.
While you could stay in bed all day snuggled up under the covers, there are all sorts of activities available too, including snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing and ice fishing. One of the most unforgettable experiences is the reindeer-pulled sled tour. Afterward sit in the soothing smoke sauna and enjoy meals at one of four restaurants, including two in a traditional Laplander hut. Each one serves Laplandic specialties like reindeer and char-grilled salmon.
