What is glass igloo accommodation?

A glass igloo in Finland is a romantic hotel where you can enjoy the sky, Lapland scenery, and the Northern Lights.

It is a cozy cabin built from insulated thermal glass or a log cabin with a glass ceiling and panoramic view. Igloos are electrically heated and maintain warmth inside, so there's no need to worry about Lapland's extremely low temperatures during winter.

Glass igloos are also designed with privacy in mind. Some of them are equipped with curtains, while others have "frozen glass", all facing open spaces to provide breathtaking views.

Usually, an igloo has a small WC, and some also have a shower. Luxury cabins include a bathroom, kitchenette, and even a private sauna and hot tube.

Classical igloos are typically designed for 2 people, with a maximum capacity of 4. However, it is also possible to stay in more comfortable and spacious glass lodges that can accommodate up to 6-12 people. (Luxury Kelo-Glass igloos Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, for example).

Nowadays, glass igloos are incredibly popular in Finland. New resorts appear every year, offering glass cabins in various sizes, shapes, and designs. Some of the newer glass igloos come with fully equipped kitchens, saunas, and even outdoor hot tubs, providing a truly fantastic experience. Additionally, for those on a limited budget, it's possible to find Northern Lights lodges that offer more affordable accommodations, like Northern Lights Village Saariselkä offering 129€/night in late August.

Where are glass igloos located?

Glass igloos are typically located in regions with cold climates, such as northern Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Specifically, they are often found in areas known for their natural beauty and ideal conditions for viewing the Northern Lights. Popular locations include Lapland in Finland.

Some igloo hotels are located at ski resorts such as Levi, Saariselkä, Luosto, and Pyhä. A few can be found near the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi. Sometimes hotels are situated in remote locations, like Muotka and Inari.

Is it really possible to see the Northern Lights from a glass igloo?

Yes, it is indeed possible to see the Northern Lights from an igloo. In fact, many glass roofed accommodations are specifically designed to offer optimal viewing conditions for this natural phenomenon. The transparent glass ceilings provide an unobstructed view of the night sky, allowing guests to enjoy the Aurora Borealis from the comfort. This unique experience is one of the main attractions of staying in a glass igloo in regions where the Northern Lights are visible.

Although glass igloo accommodation providers do not guarantee the presence of the Northern Lights in the sky during your stay, many places offer an Aurora alarm service.

To increase your chances of seeing the Northern Lights, there are numerous Aurora forecast mobile apps and services available.

Is an igloo hotel worth the money?

The worth of staying in an igloo hotel depends on individual priorities. If you value unique experiences, breathtaking views, then it might be worth the investment. However, if you prioritize luxurious amenities and spacious accommodations, you might find other types of accommodations more suitable.

The cost for a two-night igloo stay might be as high as that of a one-week log cottage holiday in Finland just a few kilometers from the igloo location. Keep in mind that you are paying for an experience! Some igloos may be quite modest with limited facilities and a lower price, but they offer great views and unforgettable memories.

How to get best deals for Igloos?

Consider Shoulder Seasons: Prices for igloo accommodations may be lower during low seasons (the periods just before or after peak seasons). You can still enjoy favorable weather conditions while potentially saving money. For example, August to October are great times to find deals!

How long should Lapland holidays be to see the Northern Lights?

The duration of your Lapland holiday needed to see the Northern Lights can vary. Typically, experts recommend staying for at least three to four nights to maximize the chances of seeing Aurora. However, keep in mind that the Northern Lights are influenced by various factors such as weather conditions, solar activity, and time. Therefore, the longer you stay, the better your chances may be.
