Glass Igloos in Finland
A view like no other
The remote Finnish landscape, one of the last remaining wilderness regions in Europe, is an enchanting sight to behold. Luckily with a stay in a Glass Igloo, you never have to take your eyes off this spectacular scenery as the half-glass roof provides a wonderful vantage point, right above your bed. What’s more, as Finland witnesses the Northern Lights on roughly 200 evenings of the year, what better way to search the skies long into the night than from your cosy Glass Igloo?
As one of the most sought-after accommodation options, many of our holidays offer a stay in a Glass Igloo in Finland. You could opt to start your Northern Lights holiday in style with your first night in these impressive structures or you could top off an end to a brilliant trip by spending your last night searching for the Aurora from the comfort of your cabin. We even have options should you wish to spend the duration of your trip in a Glass Igloo.
Though we highly recommend taking part in as many dedicated Northern Lights activities as you can, a Glass Igloo gives you the wonderful opportunity to continue your search for the magical display as late as you would like!

As experts in the Northern Lights, the Finnish certainly know how to make the most of Mother Nature’s greatest wonder. This specially designed accommodation offers an innovative way to continue your search long into the night, and really maximise your chances of seeing a display.
Though the Glass Igloos in Finland may differ slightly from location to location, their overall structure remains largely the same. The main attraction across all designs is, of course, the half-glass roof situated right above the bed where you can spend your nights gazing up at the Arctic sky and if conditions are favourable, at the Northern Lights.
Most Glass Igloos come with a private bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. You will also only be a short walk from the main hotel building to enjoy your meals.
There are many different locations in Finnish Lapland offering a stay in a Glass Igloo. We work with some fantastic local suppliers who are passionate about showing off the best of the country, the Northern Lights included and so you can expect an extremely warm welcome upon your arrival in Finland.
In Apukka, you will be just 15 minutes from the capital of Lapland but far enough from the city lights to put you in wonderful wilderness surroundings. Here, you can stay in either an Aurora Cabin or the Aurora 360 Cabins, which have a special feature of being spread over two floors - the top floor offering 360 views of the stunning outdoors.
Travel to Nellim to stay in the much-loved Aurora Bubbles, complete with a domed perspex roof and eco-toilet or for a traditional touch, spend a night in an Aurora Kota. Shaped like the tent of the Sámi people - Lapland’s indigenous community and with your own private sauna, this is a guaranteed cosy night.
In Muotka and Inari, you can choose to start or end your holiday in style in one of the Aurora Cabins. Whereas if you choose to stay at Jeris, Harriniva or Torassieppi, you could spend an unforgettable night of glamping in the remarkable Aurora Domes.
For a sustainable approach to this innovative accommodation, head to Pyhä where ground heat is the core source of energy, supported by solar panels on the roof. The walls are also built using thick certified local timber logs for an extremely cosy interior and low carbon footprint.
At the Vasara Reindeer Ranch, in the heart of Sámiland, your Glass Igloo accommodation not only gives you the chance of seeing the Northern Lights but you may also see some of the local reindeer wandering around outside your cabin.
If one night is not enough, choose to travel to a Northern Lights Village either in Levi or Saariselkä where your Glass Igloo comes as standard for the duration of your stay!
