Once you step into this place, it is like entering fairyland. the glass igloo is absolutely great , but make sure you book the big ones otherwise you will not have a shower. We also move to the wooden cabin as well. while it is not as spectacular as the glass igloo, the fireplace and personal sauna inside is great.... More

Firstly Lapland is beautiful, its a wonderful place and the people are very friendly and I would love to return someday; but I will not be staying in Kakslauttanen. When you pay this sort of money, having travelled to many hotels in many countries, I think it is fair to expect a certain level of comfort and service, imagine what... More

We booked a large log house in the village. Breakfast is included but not dinner. We found it ok, as it is very cozy to cook your own dinner at the lovely log house. It's a very Nordic experience. Breakfast is good. They provide fundamental items and we are satisfied with this in such a rural environment. I read some... More

This was a birthday treat and it truly was a treat. Arrival is a little frustrating, waiting in the coach but not sure why. However the coach did drop us more or less at our cabin. We had 2 nights in the cabin which was roomy and comfortable. It had a small kitchen with a fridge so we took our... More

Thank you Kakslautten for a magical experience. Your property is traditionally unique, warm and homely. The international staff are humble and friendly. The owner is passionate about his property and hands on. I just loved his enthusiasm and warmth. Joti our host was just lovely and exceptionally knowledgeable. We did every excursion possible, but I must say the husky safari... More

This was interesting place to stay but obviously was a bit expensive. We stayed in a 4-person igloo but the shower room was too small and the toilet doesn't have a ventilation that goes OUT of the Igloo (it stays in the Igloo) - so we ended up using the toilets and showers in the reception area (and the sauna...

I knew before going here, that this was a basic hotel and we were purely going for the activities and the hope of seeing the northern lights what did we get everything as expected, but just not everything we needed. The rooms were clean,however they were not cleaned each day, therefore no fresh towels etc, no tissues in the bathroom,... More

First of all, after booking the hotel I was concerned that it had such mixed reviews on Tripadvisor but after our stay I know that it deserves a 5 star! I think the reason for such variance in experiences is because the site is divided into an East and a West Village. These are quite far apart and should not... More

We stayed here for one night in Febuary for my 40th Birthday. It was a truly magical experience. The igloos were fantastic very warm and comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't see the Northern Lights due to the cloud cover. The food in the restaurant wasn't very appetising, we had Reindeer and it was like leather. Th staff were very friendly and...

We stayed for 4 nights in the West Village, 2 in an igloo and 2 in a log cabin. We were very lucky to see the Aurora on 2 nights. The beds both in the igloos and log cabin were rock hard (and I am used to some very basic conditions in Africa). We were surprised that the rooms are... More
