This is a resort like no other you have experienced. Located 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 Sami have inhabited the region for over a century. The surrounding environment is one of the cleanest you’ll find anywhere in the world. The water is so pure that you can quench your thirst straight from a stream running down the fell or the lake into which it flows, and the air is so fresh that you can feel it deep down in your lungs. Up here, winters are cold and summers comfortably warm. All in all, what you’ll find here is perfection.
Kakslauttanen is a family hotel in Finnish Lapland, 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Although far from it all, it’s easy to reach. The nearest international airport is in Ivalo, just a 30-minute ride away. Well served by major airlines via Helsinki and Ivalo, not far from northern Norway or Murmansk, Russia either.
The newly built Kelo-Glass igloos combine the comforting warmth of the cosy log chalets with the sensational views of the world-famous glass igloos. Sleeping up to six and featuring a private sauna, fireplace, kitchenette, and a bedroom with a stunning glass roof, they’re made from Lapland’s unique Kelo pinewood. Take in the enchanting beauty of the northern lights and the Lappish wilderness from the comfort of your own private hideaway.
A night in one of the sensational snow igloos is an unforgettable experience. Rarely does anyone get the chance to sleep as cosily as they do in an ice-cool igloo that shields them from even the faintest outside noise. Even if the mercury dips to minus 40 degrees centigrade outside, the temperature inside is a consistent minus three to minus six. Everything is provided for a cool, comfortable night in.
Earth lodges (kammi in Finnish) have been used as residences in Finland since ancient times. Their turf roofs conceal them in the landscape as if forest trolls had built them. It’s hard to imagine a more appropriate love nest – the earth lodge is the perfect hideout. And why rush out? After all, you will have a sauna and a great bathroom with bathtub all to yourselves.
