Hotel Kakslauttanen is located in the Saariselkä fell area amidst beautiful Lapland scenery in the vicinity if Urho Kekkonen National Park, Finland. In the winter time they have Igloo Village, open each year between December and January depending on the weather conditions and stays open until the end of April.
Igloo Village offers a possibility to enjoy a range of unique winter recreation activities like spending a night in a snow or glass igloo, dining in a snow restaurant, admiring ice marvels in the Ice Gallery or getting married in their highly popular snow chapel.
There are 20 glass igloos, 60 beds in snow igloos and an one of a kind glass kota. The snow restaurant provides seating for 50-150 people. And on every evening a hot sauna and a refreshing ice hole are waiting for you.
The temperature inside the snow igloo stays always between -3°C and -6°C. Besides a warm down sleeping bag (rated extreme temperature is -32°C), they also provide woollen socks and a hood, so that you will never feel cold. Built from a special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays at a normal level. It also prevents the glass from not getting white frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds.
Glass igloo provides an one of a kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and millions of stars of the crystal clear Lapp sky in a comfortable room temperature, as in the area there are not so many electric lights outside and it is north enough so that the probability of them is very high from late August until late April.
