My husband and I stayed one night in the glass igloo in early December 2013. It was fantastic. Not what I expected but both in a good and bad way. It is such a unique design the igloos with the cute little hobbit door you need to bend down to go through. But you do have to trek your luggage... More

My wife and I got married at Igloo Village in February 2014 we stayed a total of 4 nights (3 in a wooden cabin / 1 in the glass igloo) and overall we had a superb time and we thought we would give our opinion on the resort. Check in was swift and yes you have to put your bags... More

I stayed at Kakslauttanen for two nights in early April 2014 and I stayed in one of the glass igloos. This place is stunningly beautiful, especially as it was still completely under snow when we were there. (I'm guessing it's under snow for most of the year...?) The igloos are quirky (to quote one other reviewer here) but functional. Check... More

There are mixed reviews for this property and having stayed here I think both apply. If you see the lights from a glass igloo you'll love the place, if not it's more akin to a budget hotel experience. We stayed one night in an igloo. This on its own is very nice and quirky. We saw no northern lights but... More

We can only recommend this beautiful hotel, their facilities, staff and food. Arrived at 23:00 after the plane had to turn back to Helsinki due to a technical fault. Still found the kitchen open and friendly staff served us with a (freshly made) three course meal. Where else will you find this? All the arrangements for country trips were professionally... More

I even had a shower and there is some strange shower type hose under the sink. A ins great, place is beautiful, stunning beyond belief. As three... More

AMAZING place! Stayed in a glass igloo for one night a few weeks ago.Yes, the igloo's don't have showers- they're a glass igloo what do you expect?! Yes, the igloo's are away from the main resort- people would complain about light pollution if they were any nearer?!... No bell service?!... The whole fun of it is pulling your luggage on... More

Stayed one night in an igloo in the middle of winter. It's a fun experience and one has to accept the fact that, while there is a toilet, there is no shower. We were lucky because we were there on a clear night and the Aurora Borealis put on quite a display. We could raise the back of the bed... More

We stayed one night in a glass igloo which was the main reason we decided to come up to the Laplands during our short visit to Finland. Although the experience is fun, it was a bit disappointing. The glass igloos themselves are a bit outdated and run down inside. The beds are terribly uncomfortable and the pillow was flatter than... More
