IGLOO VILLAGE KAKSLAUTTANEN

While some of us are thrilled for the mild winter, others lament the lack of snow. For the latter, might we suggest a trip to Igloo Village Kakslauttanen in the Arctic Circle in Finland. In wintertime, accommodations include snow igloos and glass igloos – yes, igloos! There’s also a restaurant and a chapel for fairytale winter wonderland weddings. The glass igloos are built from a special thermal glass so the temperature inside the igloo is plenty toasty. If you prefer a more rustic approach, you can sleep in a snow igloo in which the temp hovers between -3°C and -6°C. Don’t worry, they provide a down sleeping bag rated to -32°C, woolen socks, and a hood.

The Glass Kota is a heated building in the shape of a traditional Lapp teepee, eight meters high by eight meters wide. It offers an unobscured view of the Lapp night sky and the northern lights. Those getting married in the snow chapel often use it for a cocktail party before or after the wedding. It also has its own altar suitable for wedding ceremonies.
