Anyone who follows a travel account on Instagram has likely seen photos of glass igloos set against the picturesque backdrop of northern Finland. These igloos are part of the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, a legendary stop on any avid adventurer’s global itinerary. Located three hours north of Lapland’s central hub at the near-northernmost point of Europe, the resort is divided into two villages – the older East Village and the newer West Village – each of which has its own glass igloos, wooden cabins, restaurants, and activities. The igloos themselves are tiny – sharing one with anyone other than a significant other is not recommended. However, what the igloos lack in size they more than make up for in the truly surreal experience that staying in one provides. The first thing that you notice when you walk into one is how unbelievably detailed the stunning architecture is – these things are basically the Taj Mahal of igloos. In the daylight, sunbeams are refracted every which way, putting on a sort of otherworldly, sparkling show. Of course, the real treat comes at night. If you are lucky enough to be at Kakslauttanen when the mysterious Northern Lights adorn the sky, there is truly no better place to watch them. Each igloo is fitted with a bed that can be converted into a reclining, cinema-style lounger that lends itself perfectly to viewing the heavenly show while swathed in a cashmere blanket. Earth is filled with magical experiences, but watching the Northern Lights from the comfort of a heated, glass igloo in the Arctic Circle no doubt takes the cake.
