Hotel Kakslauttanen Igloo Village, Arctic Circle, Finland

In Finland high above the Arctic Circle, Hotel Kakslauttanen Igloo Village makes the most of the wintry setting. Visitors come from far and wide to witness the aurora borealis, visible 200 nights of the year in far northern climes.

An overnight stay in temperature-controlled glass-domed igloos enables guests to watch the night sky as the heavens unfurl around them. Bring thermal underwear and warm boots for daytime winter excursions in the taiga.
