Sleeping Under the Stars in Finland’s Glass Igloos The Vagabondish Team March 26, 2008 Accommodations, Finland, News 5 Comments Sleeping on ice beds in igloos in the freezing North is almost passé. The new trend is glass igloos in the heart of Lapland that allow guests to enjoy the beauty of snow storms and the spectacular Northern Lights without having to freeze their butts off. These glass igloos are available for rent at the Hotel Kakslauttanen in Saariselka Finland, and are part of the Igloo Village, which also contains snow igloos. The temperature inside the glass igloo is constantly kept at room temperature, and the structure has been made of specially designed thermo glass to prevent frosting, so guests have an unobstructed view of the pristine outdoors. And what a view it promises to be. There are no electric lights for miles around, and the location is sufficiently north to ensure unrestricted views of the most spectacular show in the universe, the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights. When there is nothing wild going on, you can still lie under the glass, and gaze upon the stars in the clear sky. Comforts include a toilet (!), a sauna and an ice pool nearby should you get that urge to freeze your butt. 5 Responses sir jorge March 26, 2008 This is a great thing, glad to see someone’s innovating camping for the nerd in all of us.
