Amazing views of the Northern Light from the Igloo Village

The northern lights or Aurora Borealis is one of the most impressive attractions on our planet. I’m sure everyone wishes to be able to see them at least one in their lifetime. Because of the location it’s very difficult to do that. However, it’s possible. For example, you can crash in the Igloo village at Hotel Kakslauttanen from where you’ll be able to experience breathtaking views of Aurora Borealis during winter season.

The Igloo Village provides a unique opportunity to admire the northern lights plus the millions of stars from inside your own warm and cozy glass igloo. Each igloo is built from a special type of thermal glass. This means that the temperature inside the igloo will always stay at a comfortable level, regardless of what happens outside. Also, this special type of glass is prevented from getting white frosted thus ensuring a clear view outside even when the temperature outside drops under -30°C.

This is a traditional igloo. I’m sure the Eskimo people would love to have such homes. Besides being cozy and clear all the time, each igloo is also equipped with a toilet and luxury beds. I wonder if the toilet is transparent as well or if it has some sort of ventilation. These igloos are part of Hotel Kakslauttanen which is located 250 km above the Arctic Circle in the Finnish part of Lapland.
