An overnight stay in a Glass Igloo in Lapland is truly a once in a lifetime bucket list experience. The Igloo sites in Lapland are built away from the busy towns and light pollution to increase your chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis. Obviously, the Northern Lights cannot be guaranteed with them being a natural phenomenon, but if seeing them is one of the reasons you are visiting Lapland then an overnight Igloo stay must be on your to do list!
With the Igloo sites being in the middle of the wilderness and away from the towns and cities there is not much else to do other than having dinner on site and spending time chilling and unwinding in the cosiness of your private Igloos. Through ourselves Igloos can only be booked onto seven-night holidays and as a 1-night excursion, if you are booked onto a short Santa Break you just do not have enough time with all your other excursions.
These overnight Igloo stays can be pre-booked, but the exact day of the week will be confirmed within 3 working days of booking. Prices range throughout low and high season and on the different types of Igloos, but you are looking at around £299-£750 per person per night. Most cabins can take extra beds for children under 12 at a small cost, give us a call for more information.
