If you’re dreaming of a magical winter holiday, complete with pristine snow-covered forest, cozy cabins, and roaring fires, then the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is for you. Located in the picturesque Finnish Lapland, this incredible resort delivers all this and more. It’s a true arctic adventure, with plenty of exciting winter activities like snowmobiling, husky sledging and reindeer sleigh rides.

The resort is situated in a remote national park in Finland, where the forest meets the sky – and with no light pollution in this part of the world, it makes it the perfect place for optimal viewing of nature’s magical northern lights display, the Aurora Borealis.

Stay in unique glass-igloo accommodations for the chance to view the Northern Lights from the comfort of your own bed. The modern-style igloos are built with glass-domed roofs so you can sleep under the starry sky. The igloos are heated to 21 degrees Celsius to ensure you are comfortable during your stay.

There is also the option for you to stay in a traditional Finnish log cabin, complete with your very own fireplace and private sauna. Saunas are an important part of life in Finland, and the perfect way to relax after you’ve been out enjoying the crisp, fresh winter air.

To truly immerse yourself in the magic of the surrounding woodland, you have the option to partake in any number of adventurous winter activities. Mush your very own team of huskies on an exhilarating sledding trip through the forest, snowmobile your way over the glistening, snow-blanketed hills, or take a relaxing reindeer sleigh ride under the cover of blankets while sipping on warm berry juice.

However you choose to spend your time at Kakslauttanen, you are sure to experience the best that winter in the Arctic Circle has to offer – which is nothing short of magical.

This resort features on Collette’s 7 day Northern Lights of Finland tour, which has departures from October through to April each year.
