Worth visiting! We were here in summer and slept a cabin for one night on our way to Nordkapp. The cabins are just perfect: warm (which is important since even in summer it's neat freezing cold here), cozy and a private sauna! Lots of room and a fire place to top it off.

Our one night stay in the igloo was really a trip highlight. We arrived just as it was getting dark and everyone was so happy going to their individual igloos, some of us started impromptu snowball fights. The best part of course was being able to see the northern lights from the igloo itself, which we were very lucky to... More

Well we tried to see the northern lights for 4 days and 3 nights but after all that travel the cloudy sky spoilt our dream from being realised. The resort is very isolated with with not a lot to do, but we very much enjoyed having our own private dog sleigh team to take us through the snow. We didn't... More

Stayed in glass igloo on 1st night and the 2nd night in a log cabin during my honeymoon. We checked-in at the reception where we collected the key to our glass igloo. We used a sledge to pull our luggage where we passed a frozen lake to the igloo. The walk was about 10mins and it was winter. The glass... More

We spent Christmas 2014 at Kakslauttanen resort and had the most amazing experience. Christmas eve dinner and the days activities were fantatic and a night in the glass igloo topped off the week. The owner was around to ensure all worked well and did a great job. It was -30 degrees but the experience was worth it.

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
