Glass igloo is an accommodation with glass roof to experience a night under the sky. Is is designed to see the starry sky and possibly the Northern lights from a bed beneath the transparent roof. Glass igloo experience suits for a romantic gateway or very special Lapland experience.

The roof of glass igloos is usually made from electrically heated glass. It helps to keep the warmth and melt the snow and ice for a better view.

Glass igloos are electrically heated and comfortable even if there is extreme cold temperatures outside. Majority of modern igloo accommodation has all facilities like shower and wc for a comfort stay. Some luxury options have own sauna or outdoor heated jacuzzi, little kitchenette or tea and coffee facilities.


Glass igloos in Finland are located in Lapland within the Aurora Zone in the main, around or to the north of the Arctic Circle. It is believed that the north the igloo is located, the more chances to see the Northern lights.

Most popular areas in Finland where glass igloos are concentrated: Rovaniemi and Santa Claus village, Levi ski resort, Saariselka ski resort and Kakslauttanen area.


1. The easiest way to get to Lapland all year round: take a flight to Helsinki airport in Finland and then local flight to one of the Lapland airports:

# Rovaniemi airport - the central hub of Lapland.
Igloo resorts located near: Arctic Glass Igloos Sinettä, Snowman World Glass Resort, Santa's Igloos Arctic Circle, Apukka resort.

# Kittilä airport.
Igloo resorts located near: Golden Crown Levin Iglut (Igloo), Levi Northern Lights Huts, Northern Lights Ranch.

# Ivalo airport
Igloo resorts located near: Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort Igloos, Northern Lights Village Saariselka, Muotka Igloos, Wilderness Aurora lodge, Aurora Village Ivalo, Lake Inari Mobile Cabins, Star Arctic Hotel.

2. Another way: take a flights to Helsinki and then take a comfortable night train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi, Kemijärvi or Kolari. This is a good way to skip a night in Helsinki. Train arrives to Lapland early morning and it is still almost full day there for activities.


Yes, it is possible. Glass igloos are specially designed to see the sky from a bed. They are tended to be oriented toward the north or with open panorama view over the lake or from up-hill.

Staying at a glass igloo does not increase the chances to see the Northern Lights, as the weather and cloudiness is always the biggest factor no one can predict. But is gives an unique overnight experience. And if you are lucky the view will be amazing.

Some glass igloo hotels provide Aurora alarm service not to miss it.


Glass igloo rates in Finland are from 250€/night during low season up to 990€/night during high Christmas and New Year holidays.
