One of our favourite trends recently has been towards glass (or more commonly Perspex) topped rooms which you can stay in overnight. These wonderfully designed structures give you a distinctive location in which to sleep, ensuring you can enjoy warmth and comfort, whilst being able to stare at the night sky from the comfort of your own bed.
These experiences tend to be designed as a one night upgrade during your holiday, improving your Northern Lights chances and making your Aurora Zone experience all the more special. There are some examples, such as the Aurora Kotas at Muotka, where we can arrange for you to upgrade your entire stay so simply speak to one of our Travel Experts for further information.About Aurora Bubbles and Glass Igloos
A room with a view
One of our favourite ‘room with a view’ experiences is the Aurora Bubbles at Nellim and Muotka. These small wooden pods feature fantastic domed, Perspex roofs and are warmly furnished with a double bed, rugs and blankets. They are also fully heated and include a small eco toilet.
In the bubble, you can simply lie back in bed and enjoy the incredible view of the night-time scenery.
Muotka also offers the exceptional Aurora Kotas, which are designed to enable guests to enjoy the experience for the entirety of their stay. These wonderful rooms are situated a short distance from the main lodge and incorporate the cosy benefits of a cabin with a glass tepee roof over the bedroom area, allowing you to gaze at the night sky in real style.
A touch of luxury
The Arctic View Rooms have all been lovingly designed to contain all the amenities you might need including a large double bed, armchair, shower room and toilet, whilst all showcasing a simple Scandinavian design that provides great comfort and elegance all in one.
The real attraction here though is that each room is self-contained, with large windows and a partial glass roof to enable Aurora hunters the chance to be able to keep an eye on the sky at all times, giving you the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights whilst staying in absolute comfort.
