Igloo Village: Icy Finnish Getaway

Greenland’s Igloo village, Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, is the perfect place for those who have always dreamed of a bed beneath the splendor of the stars and the whimsical wishes of the Northern Lights. Buried snugly in the snow you will find a handful of glass roofed igloos perfectly procured for an ethereal slumber beneath the dancing sky.

Rousing in the small hours of the night your eyelids flutter to see a prism of laser greens and golds flooding and falling in the night sky, as though from a dream. The quaint and charming igloos offer little more than a beautiful bed for falling gracefully into.

One night of surreal beauty is enough to satiate any soul but for the rest of your stay in Greenland you can discover the unique culture of those who live beneath the weight of winter. Go out reindeer herding with the Sami people, buy local handicrafts carved the hands of locals and see the brightly woven clothing glimmering against the pure white snow of the velvet wood surroundings.

Those who want to feel the flakes of ice slip against their ruddy cheeks can take dog sled tours of the pearly white hills, reindeer sleigh rides through the spindly shadows of the forests or can take a snowmobile out into the wilderness and explore in high-speed fashion.

For the rest of your stay in the Igloo Village you can sleep in rustic wood cabins, cuddle up beneath thick fur blankets, throw another log on the fire and sip fresh cocoa with a dash of rum.

On your doorstep you can find the sculpted ice bar and the ice restaurant, the perfect place for ordering a tall drink and tasting the best in fresh Finnish cuisine. Discovering Finland at its finest is best done beneath the swirling flakes and flashing lights of the midnight sky, when the Aurelia borealis are out to play.
