Firstly, if you are staying there in the winter, bring your flashlight! It's dark and there is very little light, which is good for seeing the Northern Lights. They care about the Northern Lights and will sound the alarm if they are visible. I stayed in a glass igloo and while it's a worthwhile experience, it is very very small. I don't know how more than 1 person stays in them! There is no shower- for that you have to stay in a kelo log cabin- that will be $300 more please! Also, they should make the glass igloos more private. They frosting they use for the bathroom should be around the base of the cabin too, instead they use an almost transparent curtain, which doesn't extend around the entire cabin! If you stand up you can look into the cabin across from you. There's no curtain over the door window! I mean, that's a small fix management! Don't expect the food to be great, not even good. The best thing I ate was the beet soup. They said they don't get many compliments on it, which makes you wonder, why are they still serving it. My friend had the reindeer which she loves, but she said it was bad. I had 4 drinks, not one was good, sigh. Also, they close the resort at midnight so no place to hang out unless you're in a large cabin. There's so much potential and yet they fall short. The reindeer ride was nice. I enjoyed that. Also, stay on the west side. If you're on the east side you have to wait for a driver to take you there. It's more than 3 miles from the west, which is where all the activities and dining are located. It has potential to be great but just average.

Just arrived back from a surprise trip away from here for my 40th what a lucky girl I am. This place is out of this world!! We stay a few nights in the log cabins, which was amazing had an Open log fire your own sauna could not fault at all. We also stayed in the Glass igloos on our 3rd night,which again was out of this world truly amazing. We got to see the Aurora whiles staying in the igloos no words other than Wow truly amazing it’s something I’ve always wanted to do & see, so this was a dream come truth 💕💫 to see the Aurora whiles I’m the igloo. The resorted itself, was amazing staff couldn’t do even for you, Even when we transferred from the Log cabin to the glass igloos are luggage was taken care of & transfer across. Breakfast & the evening meal I couldn’t fault it all, however at lunch time there was no where to get anything to eat other than a bowl of soup for €15, which wasn’t great. This is the only thing I could fault throughout the whole experience even if they a snack menu would of made a difference.if u like a alcoholic drink whiles chilling of a night in your Igloo I would definitely recommend to bring some with you as there is no local shops. There was no light pollution at all, in the East village where we stayed! We even got 4G out in the middle of no where can’t even get this at home haha. The activities we couldn't fault at all, very well looked after. We did the husky Safari amazing, reindeer safari and snowmobiles highly recommend all the activities. However don’t rely on the Aurora alarm as it didn’t go off, we only got to see the Aurora by sitting up waiting but well worth it 💕 people did miss them as they was relying On the Aurora alarm. This trip by far is the best trip I’ve ever done, and a dream come truth, I would highly recommend this place to any one 😀💕💫

This place was amazing, especially when winter. Seemed in the wilderness, very quiet and suitable for relaxing. Actually my purpose visit this place is hunting northern light, too bad it's cloudy and can't see it. But no regret, because i really enjoy staying here and have a reason to came back hahaha. The staff also very friendly, even i feel everything so slowww.. for food, don't expect too much, they only have one menu for dinner and the breakfast seem same every day. Oya, if you always feels hungry at night, i suggest you prepare your own meal, because the service only until 11 at night.
