Arrival at Ivalo airport and transfer to Hotel & Igloo Village, Kakslauttanen. Transfer is approximately 40 minutes from the airport. Arrival at the village and enjoy the rest of your day at leisure. Your accommodation for tonight is a little unusual. The glass igloo provides a one of a kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and millions of stars of the crystal clear sky in comfort. Built from special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays warm, it also prevents the glass from not getting frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds. Accommodation in a glass igloo in East Village & 3- courses dinner in the restaurant is included today.
