Glass Igloo in Kakslauttanen Hotel in Finland

When you hear about Finland you think of Santa Claus home and Aurora Borealis. Of course there are a million other things to see there, but these two are the most famous ones. Any way, the polar nights are known to be really cold , so it’s pretty hard to stay out and enjoy the beautiful show of the skies, even if you are equipped with fur coats and thick clothes. That is precisely why some smart guys from Kakslauttanen Hotel in Finland had a brilliant idea: to build a glass igloo that will allow the tourists inside feel warm and comfortable and at the same time enjoy the Northern Lights all night long.

The inside of the igloo is a luxury one and you have everything you want there: a toilet, luxury beds and … the most important thing – a normal temperature. The glass the igloo is made of is pretty special because it is supposed to let you see outside without getting a crust of ice or snow on it. So the glass is thermal and thick enough, standing temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius without a problem. Great idea if you ask me.

    Brilliant, and no doubt much warmer than the ice igloo i stayed in last winter in Kuusamo! I really need to give these a try.
