Kakslauttanen Hotel and Igloo Village in Finland
Unique and Comfortable Accommodation
During your stay at the Kakslauttanen Hotel in Finland you can choose to spend the night in an igloo made entirely out of glass or, depending on local weather conditions, snow!
A stay in a snow igloo is a unique arctic experience and with temperatures in the structure between - 3° C and -6° C, you are provided with a cosy sleeping bag, socks and a hood to keep you warm throughout the night.
If you would prefer the opportunity to watch out for the amazing Northern Lights from the comfort of your bed at Kakslauttanen, then a glass igloo is ideal. Created from thermal glass, the igloo retains its heat and does not frost over in extreme cold, resulting in un-interrupted views of the night sky and an increased chance of a sighting.
The remainder of your holiday at the Kakslauttanen Holiday Village is spent in a traditional log cabin which features a range of facilities for your comfort including a kitchenette, an individual shower and toilet, fireplace and private sauna. Available at further cost is the Queen Suite which has all the standard facilities of the log cabins with the addition of a full bathroom and outdoor hot tub. Newlyweds can enjoy the lavish comforts of the Honeymoon Turf Chamber.

At meal times, there are four different restaurants at the Kakslauttanen Igloo Village where you can enjoy some authentic Lappish cuisine. Each restaurant has its own individual theme. Admire the traditional log cabin settings of the main restaurant, listen to the stories of the indigenous Sami people in the Kota restaurant or enjoy a drink at the ice bar in the snow restaurant.
The final restaurant is located in the Kakslauttanen smoke sauna, where you can order a selection of produce to be freshly cooked in front of you on an open fireplace. If you are staying at the Kakslauttanen Holiday Village for a family holiday, Santa’s Resort is located just a short distance away. The snow-covered winter landscape makes this attraction all the more magical for children and they will have the chance to visit the reindeer pen, enjoy biscuits and drinks with the elves and meet Santa himself.

Optional Activities and Excursions
Whether you are looking for a refreshing break or a thrilling holiday, there are a variety of activities available for you to enjoy at the Kakslauttanen Igloo Village.

There are also more relaxing activities on offer at the Kakslauttanen Hotel such as ice carving, ice fishing and the chance to enjoy a soothing sauna, which can be followed by a swim in the resort’s Ice Hole if you are feeling particularly adventurous.
