What could be better than seeing the Northern Lights?

Seeing them from the comfort of your bed.

And at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finnish Lapland you can do just that.

Recently featured on the TV show “Amazing Spaces: Northern Lights Adventure,” which airs on the UK’s Channel 4, the resort was called a “dream” destination by viewers, with many saying they would add it to their bucket list.

Just north of the Arctic Circle, the resort sits on 1,200 acres and features 65 igloos to sleep in. Made of glass, they allow for unobstructed views of the Aurora Borealis, and even come equipped with an “Aurora Alarm,” so guests don’t miss a thing.

The resort features a variety of accommodations, from log cabins to traditional houses, the famous glass igloos, and even snow igloos.


While temperatures around these parts can get as low as -40F, the igloos are made from a special thermal glass that keeps the inside toasty, and the glass from frosting over.

This far north, you can see the Aurora Borealis around 200 days a year. Glass igloos are available from August through April, which are the best time to see the natural light show.
