Sleeping in an igloo on the Arctic Circle & visiting Finnish Lapland

It's not everyday that one gets to lie down in a heated igloo and stare at the Northern Lights for hours. This experience might sound surreal but it is truly the tip of the proverbial iceberg in Finnish Lapland. We were excited when we booked our trip but we just couldn't believe our eyes when we finally got there. The entire landscape belongs in a fairy tale or a dream, nowhere else. Here snow-laden trees, reindeer, husky dogs, and picture-perfect cottages co-exist in harmony & every hour of the day can be spent being gobsmacked by nature's offerings.

We spent our days tobogganing, enjoying endless reindeer sleighs rides, petting husky dogs, sleeping in igloos and watching the spectacular Northern Lights on a daily basis. When the time came, we just did not want to leave this wonderland. This corner of the world is truly special - it's perfect if you want to go plan an offbeat honeymoon, romantic holiday, or a memorable holiday packed with dozens of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Igloo experience

You can catch the local bus from Sarrisalka to Kakslautten as it isn't far. Spending a night in the glass igloo is amazing!
