Many people are fascinated with the Northern Lights, and we can definitely understand the pull. With a glowing bucket of colors, pale, green, violet, blue, and pink – it’s clear why anyone would be mesmerized by the sight ahead of them. Now imagine sleeping under those same lights. Ahh, that’s where the excitement begins. But here’s the thing, you can totally sleep under the Northern Lights, you just need to book a flight to Finland and make a reservation at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. So what are you waiting for? Okay, okay, here’s some background information if you really need it!
The Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort
Northern Finland is where you’ll find the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort… but you do need to know where to look. All year round, you’re basically living in a winter wonderland (while you can visit in any season, winter is the best time to go). What does the resort offer? A breathtaking chance to experience the dark season in an incredibly unique way. Their rooms are barely known as that, instead they’re glass igloos that present a gorgeous view of the snow falling around you, the long days, and of course, best of all, the endless glow of the Northern Lights.
Of course, the lure is there if you just want to stay inside your igloo, cozy up with a fuzzy blanket, a cup of hot chocolate, and watch Netflix or read a book or have a romantic date with your partner. The choices are endless, but what’s more is that you have the most staggering view literally surrounding you day in, day out. Plus, the resort has any amenity you think you need. Staying in never sounded so good.
If you want to get out and experience what Finland has to offer, there’s plenty to do. Apart from snow-covered forests, you can see it all either on a horse or a snowmobile or a snow tank or best of all, you can join the “ice-breaking sampo.” What’s that you ask? Oh, just a massive ship that tears through the ice. Going out and about might be chilly but at least the sights are worth it.
If Not Winter, Autumn
If you head to Kakslauttanen in autumn, you’ll still see the Northern Lights, but also more things you never thought of. The mountains, hills, forests and rivers are so clean that all you need is an empty water bottle to fill up and start trekking. All of the mushrooms and wild berries you see are edible so just pick off a few and carry on. You can also go fishing, quad-biking, horse-riding, bike-riding and so on. The list is quite endless.
This family hotel strives to make each guests’ experience unique and one that’ll forever leave a stamp on your heart. Don’t wait around! Grab a bag, a huge coat, and get to the airport. This is one trip you don’t want to put off.
