If you enjoy natural experiences, astronomy, & clean crisp air, Kakslauttanen is a must do. The log cabin environment on rolling acres is beautiful, peaceful and connects one to nature. We stayed in the glass igloos and saw the "Northern lights" show 2 of the 3 nights of our stay. The night skies were clear, the air crisp and the...

The resort it's very big, confortable and beautiful, the food it's tasty . You should book your transfer to the airport before you travel , for the activities the hotel have a diferentes companies so they reserve for you.

Tl;dr (for all reviews for this hotel)- if you have no time to research before coming here - don't come. Take the time. Do the research before coming here and you will have a great time. If you don't have time, then this will be a very disappointing trip.

I don't think I have ever followed a Trip Advisor site with so many reviews and yet these reviews are so diverse; many damning of the Resort and others glowing in their praise. So we approached our stay with a fair bit of trepidation but believed we were well prepared for any eventuality. We stayed for four nights in a...

We stayed 1 night in the glass igloos as part of our tour. What an experience! On arrival at 5.30pm we were given the keys to glass igloo No.4, a map of the site and pointed in the general direction. We went to book a table for the evening meal and was told the restaurant next to the reception was...

After having booked this stay in March of 2016, I became apprehensive because of the reviews I read. However, I was glad they were wrong. If you want a 5 star hotel where you can get pampered, Kakslauttanen is not for you. This is an outdoor adventure. I cannot comment on the cabins but I spent 2 nights in a...

After the 1 hour and 20 minutes flight plus the bus ride of around 20 minutes you end up at a very beautful and pieceful place. If you also manage to see the Northern Light/Aurora you should be really happy. Our nigths were filled with Clouds - unfortunately. -We had a cottage for max 6 persons and were 5 without...

My fiance and I visited Kakslauttanen Arctic resort in Jan 2017. I can honestly say it was a great holiday from beginning to end. I was a little worried after reading some negative reviews on here about the place but it was all for nothing as we had a fantastic experience of the resort! I will break down our stay...

Visited in Jan'2016. It was definitely one of the incredible places on Earth. Although rooms were expectedly small, we had a very wonderful time in this place, chasing the Northern Lights. We also visited Santa's home there, and Moomin Tower. Breakfast was also reasonably good. Definitely a must-try once in your life.

Had the most amazing holiday over New Years Eve with my boyfriend, we were there for 4 nights. 2 nights in a log cabin and 2 nights in the glass igloo. Everything ran so smoothly from being picked up at the airport all the way through the holiday. Staff are so polite and helpful as were all the guides of...
