How to Watch the Northern Lights From Your Bed
For those who dream of watching the Northern Lights but dread the cold temperatures that go along with them, a Finnish arctic resort may have the perfect solution.
Kakslautten Arctic Resort in Finnish Lapland offers guests the ability to watch the aurora borealis from the comfort of their own bed, thanks to their glass igloos.
The resort’s igloo hotels accommodate up to four people and come with their own toilet and shower. While the temperature outside may dip to -40°F, guests are warm inside their insulated glass igloos.
For those that need a bigger space, there are also Kelo-Glass igloos which “combine the comforting warmth of our cosy log chalets with the sensational views of our world-famous glass igloos,” according to the resort.
During the day, the resort offers activities like ice fishing with a local guide, cross-country skiing and an icebreaker cruise. There’s also a spa onsite, offering massages and one of the world’s largest smoke saunas.
The igloos are available to book any time during aurora season, which lasts from late August through the end of April. One night for two in a glass igloo starts at $378.
Kakslautten is a family-owned resort 155 miles north of the Arctic Circle. It has been in operation since 1973 when its founder found the spot after his car broke down near the isolated woods.
