From this beautiful setting, surrounded by pristine wilderness, explore in a multitude of ways from the more traditional winter pursuits of snowmobiling, husky and reindeer safaris to the more obscure horse-riding or snow tank safaris, there is something for everyone. The two fells of Saariselkä just a short drive away also boast Finland's northernmost ski resort.
Kakslauttanen is famous for its Glass Igloo Village but why not go one step better and choose acommodation that truly surpasses expectations… the Kelo-Glass Igloo. Sleeping up to 6 people and featuring a private sauna, fireplace, kitchenette and a bedroom with a stunning glass roof, the Kelo-Glass Igloos combine the warmth and comfort of a traditional log cabin with the unique luxury of a glass igloo bedroom. This really is the ultimate place to stay whether you are looking for a romantic getaway for two or travelling as a larger family.
What better way is there to spend your Lappish nights than gazing skyward from the cosy comfort of your own bed? Saariselkä is often referred to as one of the best locations in Finland to witness the Northern Lights and with unobstructed views to the northern skies your chances of seeing this natural spectacle are certainly good. With luck Mother Nature will put on a magical display for you from the comfort of your own private hideaway.
