Igloo Village – Magical Night under the Northern Lights
Nestled in the Arctic Circle near Finland’s Urho Kekkonen National Park, the Igloo Village, which is part of Hotel Kakslauttanen, is guaranteed to give guests a prime position for viewing the northern lights display during the winter months.
Guests can stay in either a glass-roofed igloo or brave the cold in a traditional snow igloo, to get a taste of one of the Arctic Circle’s best views of the Aurora Borealis.
Each glass igloo is fitted with thermal glass walls and ceilings, that insulate the interior to keep it warm and cozy at night.
The glass also contains a frost preventative, maintaining crystal clear panoramic views even when temperatures outside drop to -22 degrees fahrenheit. Fitted for two people, the igloos are small enough to be efficiently heated without consuming too much energy.
Aurora Borealis results from the collision of gaseous particles from the earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun. The resulting burst of colored light can last from less than a second to nearly two minutes. Though the lights are visible from August to April, the peak viewing time is in the darkness of the winter months.
