Hotel and Igloo Village Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, half an hour drive from Ivalo airport, is a perfect location for a holiday to escape the rush and bustle of city life. It has a beautiful location amidst the untouched Lapp wilderness, 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Far away from city lights, the place is also excellent for viewing the aurora borealis, or northern lights, whenever they adorn the dark sky with their colourful waves. Guests will enjoy comfortable lodgings in rustic log cabins which reflect the traditional Lapp style. Each cabin has a peaceful location not too close to the other ones. The resort provides an exotic holiday experience with an opportunity to sleep the polar night in a glass igloo with normal room temperature and panoramic view of the night sky. Here you will experience the true nature of the Arctic winter and still enjoy modern conveniences. For the adventurous minds there is also a possibility to enjoy the night in an igloo made of snow. Imagine sleeping in a temperature below zero, warm and snug in your padded sleeping bag, breathing in crisp, fresh air.
