Guests to Finland can experience time in an igloo hotel, and witness some of the most amazing views at the Hotel & Igloo Village Kakslauttanen in Finland. It is located about 155 miles away from the Arctic Circle, an area known for periods of 24-hour sunshine (midnight sun) and periods 24-hour sunless days. The Finland resort has a combination of glass and snow igloos. Unlike the ice igloos, the glass igloos stay at a comfortable room temperature, and according to the Igloos Village, the glass will not frost up. Visitors, therefore, can experience the beauty of the outdoors without actually being outdoors. Those who wonder where to see the Northern lights, should check the norther lights forecast and consider a stay at the igloo hotel. The northern lights,  the starry nights, and the beauty of the snow-covered trees can persuade anyone who is willing to brave the cold to  Hotel Kakslauttanen for a stay in an igloo hotel.  They are not really designed for privacy, but each glass igloo has a private restroom.

Although the temperature inside is below freezing in the igloo hotel, the Igloo Village promises guests that they will stay warm inside while they are snuggled in a down sleeping bag and wearing the provided gear (wool socks and a warm hat). The snow igloo is for people who want the unique experience of being surrounded in glittery white snow. Of course, those who would like a more traditional winter cabin at Hotel Kakslauttanen can choose to stay in the Queen Suite, which also has an outdoor hot tub.  The igloo hotel in Finland opens in December or January and is usually open until April.
