A cozy village of igloos under the Northern Lights
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Kakslauttanen is a family hotel in Finnish Lapland, 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, right at the edge of the wilderness, along the road to the Arctic Sea. It’s a mere stone’s throw to the Urho Kekkonen National Park, the largest of Finland’s national parks. The small village consists of thermal glass igloos—each with its own private sauna, fireplace, kitchenette and glass-roofed bedroom—and log cabins with igloo “annexes.” There are five restaurants on property as well as spa and massage services and the world’s largest smoke sauna. Although remote, the property is easy to reach. The nearest international airport is in Ivalo, just a 30-minute ride away. Finnair and Norwegian fly regularly between Helsinki and Ivalo. The resort is open year-round, except for May.
