What You'll Do

Embark on an unforgettable wilderness adventure in Northern Lapland. Blissful relaxation, adrenaline-pumping outdoor adventures and the world's greatest natural wonder make this an unforgettable trip. Stay in a glass-roofed aurora cabin for the very best chance of seeing the ethereal Northern Lights.

Your adventure begins the moment you touch down in Ivalo airport, where you’ll be picked up and transferred to your beautiful glass-roofed accommodation. Nestled in the snow-covered pine forest, your glass roofed igloo allows uninterrupted views of the dark sky of the polar night.

With clear skies and the right conditions, you will be able to witness nature’s most spectacular light show, the aurora borealis, all from the comfort of your cosy cabin.

Take part in thrilling activities, from rushing along snow-covered tracks and frozen fells on a husky sled, to exhilarating snowmobiling escapades across the expansive wilderness. By nightfall, savour the serenity of your forest-view accommodation and witness the enchanting Northern Lights gracefully dancing above.
