What Is A Glass Igloo?

A glass igloo is a type of glamping (glamorous camping) that has recently become popular in Europe. The basic idea is to build an igloo, but instead of using snow, you use clear plastic panels on top of a metal frame. The igloo is large enough for four adults and can be heated with either a stove or an electric heater. They are also insulated against the cold, so you can enjoy your stay even during the winter!

Where Can You Find A Glass Igloo?

You can find a glass igloo in the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, which is located in Saariselkä, Finland. The igloos are heated with electricity and are serviced by a ski lift that takes you to the top of nearby hills. You can rent an entire igloo or just a cabin to stay in. They also offer accommodation with a full board included for those who want the ultimate luxury experience.

How Much Does It Cost To Stay In A Glass Igloo?

The cost to stay in the glass igloo varies, but can be anywhere from $250-$400 per night. The price includes accommodation, breakfast, and dinner as well as access to the sauna and ice hole. The package also includes a snowmobile tour with an instructor and a visit to Santa’s village. For those who want to add a little more adventure into their stay, skiing or snowmobiling packages are available for purchase at an additional cost.

What Are The Amenities Inside A Glass Igloo?

A stay-in-the-glass igloo is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The only way to get inside is by crossing a frozen lake, and inside you’ll find an electric fireplace for warmth, a queen size bed (for two), and plenty of blankets to snuggle up with. There are also heated floors and plenty of amenities for cooking or coffee making. But most importantly, the glass igloo offers guests an unforgettable view of the Northern Lights!

What Activities Can You Do Nearby?

The glass igloo is located in the middle of a Finnish forest, and as such, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. For example, you can go ice fishing or snowmobiling. There are also plenty of hiking trails in the area that will give you access to some stunning natural wonders. The glass igloo is just ten minutes from the nearest village. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy a traditional Finnish sauna or visit one of the many restaurants for a taste of local cuisine.
