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.
