Best places to stay:

Last updated: 18 January, 2023

This extraordinary hotel, beautifully set on the edge of one of Finland’s greatest national parks, offers a wealth of outdoor adventures for adults and kids including snowmobiling, husky tours, ice fishing, hiking, mountain biking, reindeer safaris and even gold panning. You never really need go anywhere else for your Lapland experience.

But what it’s really known for is its igloo-esque rooms; constructed of thermal glass that functions like a two-way mirror – you can see out but no-one can see in – they allow you to lay in bed and stare at the starred universe. If you’re lucky, you may even see the famed Northern Lights – from the comfort of your thermal-blanketed bed.

Don’t miss

Reception can arrange the most unique and thrilling airport pick-ups you’ll ever experience: a snowmobile service from Ivalo airport, some 40km away.

The hotel has the world’s largest smoke sauna – an invigorating, organic affair that stimulates your circulation and gets you sweating out toxins. After, jump in the lake to cool off.

While you’re there

The resort offers you the chance to sleep a night in a real igloo. They promise the cosiest of igloo stays, providing thermal sleeping blankets and thick furs.

Experience a Finnish Smoke Sauna

Lapland, Finland

Finns have used saunas for centuries – for hygiene, warmth and community. The traditional ritual alternates between intense heat and icy cold plunges into nearby frozen lakes. Sounds painful, but if heat up enough first, you won’t feel cold – only exhilaration and a deep physical, emotional and spiritual cleanse. Best experienced in Lapland wilderness.

Best for ages: 8+ | Free | 1+ hours
