Hotel Kakslauttanen in the snowy Saariselkä Fell Region of Finland offers a one of a kind Lapland experience of staying in ice igloos, snow igloos, and cozy log cabins amidst a jovial snow village. There are 65 accommodations to choose from but we suggest you try all three kinds to get the full experience. There are plenty of activities in and around the resort like reindeer or husky sleigh rides, snowmobiling, snowboarding, skiing, ice fishing, ice water swimming in the river, and bathing in the smoke sauna (with shared terrace and relaxations room with fireplaces). The Aurora borealis or northern lights are most visible from Aug-Apr. The beautiful log restaurant serves Lappish specialties and Asian cuisine. There’s also a snow restaurant and a restaurant by the snow saunas, plus a trendy ice bar. Santa’s celebration house can be leased for special events (popular car launch venue). Stop by at either the western or eastern village gift shop for local handicrafts and souvenirs.

    Room Tip: book one night stay in an igloo then another night in the cabin for the full experience!

    WorldTop7 Insider Tip: best time to visit is during wintertime because the igloos can get too warm in the summertime; book a cabin for summertime visit

    Wi-fi signal is only available near the common areas (lobby, restaurant) so cabins do not have internet

    We love: Queen Suites that have terraces and outdoor Jacuzzi

    Remember to book the smoke sauna ahead of time because it takes 6-10 hours to heat it up

    You need not worry about bringing bulky winter clothing because they have rain clothes, rubber boots, winter overalls, etc. just let them know your size in advance; equipment rental of sleds, snowshoes, sleds and skis also available

    Must do: go on a husky or reindeer sleigh ride; there are 2 husky farms next to the resort; snowmobile and horseback riding also available
