Situated next to Urho Kekkonen National Park in remote Lapland, this resort features a variety of lodgings, including gorgeous glass igloos. Built of thermal glass and designed to stay frost free, these truly unique guest rooms offer the opportunity to watch the northern lights from the toasty comfort of your own bed. You can also stay in classic snow igloos or log cabins. The four dining choices include a snow restaurant and the dining room in a traditional Lappish kota (tent); menus showcase local specialties, such as Arctic seafood. To round out your unforgettable experience, you can embark on a reindeer-pulled sled tour or take an excursion to the nearby Arctic Ocean.
