Things To Do at the Village
During a stay at the Igloo Village you might like to try a number of exciting activities that can only be enjoyed in the Arctic. Peaceful reindeer safaris give you the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Lappish way of travel, which is both relaxing and gives you the chance to soak up the delightful scenery. You might like to look for the Northern Lights at the Igloo Village on a trip aboard the Sky Panorama Bus, which travels in search of the Aurora Borealis. The bus has a skylight in the roof that offers panoramic views so that if the Northern Lights do appear, you have the perfect vantage point.
For a more invigorating stay, guests can indulge in a number of exciting pursuits such as husky sledding and skiing. Husky sledding allows you to travel through the snow-covered landscape at a thrilling speed as you are pulled through the forests and wilderness by trained husky dogs. Snowmobiling is a similarly thrilling activity that again enables you to speed through the scenic landscapes in control of the vehicle. Other activities like ice fishing, skiing, snowshoe hiking and ice swimming are also available at the Kakslauttanen Igloo Village.
