We went here at the beginning of December 2015 with another couple. Omg what can I say it's like walking into a Christmas card. We did the 5 day tour and stayed in 2 log cabins in the resort. These are amazing but very dimly lit. Wet room, sauna, open fireplace in the bedroom, shower bunk beds in lounge area... More

This place has been among the more beautiful experiences. Of course the main draw is the Northern Lights but seeing them is highly dependent on time of the year, however Kakslauttanen has so much more to offer for anyone who loves nature. The cabin accommodation was cozy and had one of my favorite benefits of a personal sauna. The nightly... More

Stayed in the glass igloo on the west side of the resort for 4 nights. Very memorable experience. The foods were delicious, services were great, the activities that were offered by the Husky & Co were fun! I enjoyed the crisp air and the Northern Lights and they have very comfortable bed!! I wish I knew the brand of the... More

I am trying to book a Kelo-Glass Igloo room for January 2017 for four nights. It would be around €630 a night and according their websites availability we might have to switch rooms. Giving the fact that I might be spending over twenty four hundred euros at this hotel, I emailed them with a question about this booking through their... More

With all the hype this place has been getting, I was convinced that I needed to visit it as a stop during my expedition to the North. The place was very touristy, crowded (obviously) and cosmopolitan, losing a bit of the Lappish magic that is so rampant in the Finnish Laplands. The surrounding area is quiet and beautiful, but you... More

If an outdoor winter adventure is on your list, this resort is a great option. We spent 5 nights in a cabin and three night in a glass igloo / cabin. (Family of five will not fit in the smaller glass igloos.) The resort arranged all our activities -- a visit to Santa's home, reindeer sleigh ride, dog sled ride,... More

To see the Northern Lights was on the top of our bucket list. When we saw the photos of the glass igloos, we fell in love with the idea of sleeping under the stars and the Northern Lights and that is exactly what happened on our first night there. Honestly, the glass igloos aren't as nice as they look from... More

Only have toilet and basin in igloo, no mirror and eight minute walk to communal showeres. Igloos plenty warm enough and roomy. Restaurant only has choice of two menues. So out of luck if you dont like, or... More
