Glass Rooms in Finnish Lapland

Lapland offers many reasons to visit but top of the list for many people is to experience the Northern Lights. This 'bucket list' dream is now so popular that in order maximize viewing opportunities the Finns have created some ingenious and rather unique accommodations. Designed with warmth and comfort in mind, all offer a memorable experience whether you choose a stand-alone stay or combine with more traditional styled accommodation.

Wilderness Hotel Nellim is home to both the exclusive Aurora Bubble and Aurora Kota's. Aurora Bubbles are cosy heated wooden pods complete with a domed perspex roof angled towards the north with privacy assured. Located within the hotel grounds they are close to lodge facilities but far enough away from any artificial light to ensure the best views of the Arctic night skies. The simplistic design features a small porch and discrete eco-toilet and with a comfortable bed positioned beneath the domed ceiling. Slightly larger and with en suite facilities, Nellim's north facing Aurora Kota's offer fabulous views to the northern night sky through their partial glass ceiling. Accommodating up to 4 people they are ideal for families and even boast their own private sauna.

At Torassieppi, Aurora Domes offer a unique haven of warmth and comfort providing the ultimate glamping experience. Fully insulated and complete with wood burning stove, these igloo shaped tents offer uninterrupted views of the night skies through the north facing transparent wall.
