Holiday is such a short period that you probably want to get all the fun out of your special days. That’s why we have designed our place in a way that allows you to enjoy Lapland’s nature and culture comprehensively starting from personal accommodation.
From inside one our glass igloos, you can admire the northern lights and the twinkling of the bright, starry sky with your loved one – in the comforting warmth of room temperature. Under the glass roof you’ll find your own toilet, beds for two people and an additional bed, should you need it. Showers and saunas are available in separate buildings, with separate facilities for men and women. Our glass igloos are available right through the northern lights season, which begins around the third week of August and finished around the end of April.
For the winter season 2014-15, we will have new four-person igloos available. In addition to all the home comforts of our two-person igloos, these will also include shower facilities.
Our log cabins for one to ten people are made of impressively large kelo pines – trees that once stood dead and dried out – and designed in a rugged style that fits perfectly with their wild surroundings. While you won’t find widescreen TVs or dishwashers inside, you can enjoy even better sources of entertainment in every cabin – a fireplace and a sauna.
In May 2014, a number of new four-person cabins will be available at Kakslauttanen. They all have two separate en-suite bedrooms, both en suite, one with a connected sauna. Extra beds for up to two people can be provided as necessary.
A night in one of our snow igloos is an unforgettable experience. Rarely does anyone get the chance to sleep as cosily as they do in an ice-cool igloo that shields them from even the faintest outside noise. Even if the mercury dips to minus 40 degrees centigrade outside, the temperature inside is a consistent minus three to minus six. We’ll provide everything you need for a cool, comfortable night in, such as a down sleeping bag.
For lovebirds travelling together, we have a truly classy suite. The spacious 60 m2 log cabin made of kelo wood features a great bathroom with conveniences like a bath tub and sauna. On the terrace, there’s an outdoor Jacuzzi for relaxing bathing whatever the season.
Earth lodges (kammi in Finnish) have been used as residences in Finland since ancient times. Their turf roofs conceal them in the landscape, as if forest trolls had built them. It’s hard to imagine a more appropriate love nest – the earth lodge is the perfect hideout. And why rush out? After all, you do have a sauna and a great bathroom with bathtub all to yourselves.
In the almost century-old traditional house, you can immerse yourself in the authentic Lapland lifestyle of old. The hectic, modern rat race will feel like a distant memory as you rock comfortably in the rocking chair. The log house sleeps two people. And, naturally, it features a sauna as well.
Our largest cabin, Sivakka sleeps up to ten people, so there’s easily enough room for a larger family or team of colleagues. There’s a large living room, three bedrooms, a kitchen, a separate fireplace room, and a sauna.
When you stay with us, you have the opportunity to stay in the most sacred place in the northern hemisphere. Always the generous host, Santa will gladly give up his home – and even his very own bedroom – for guests to enjoy. Just make sure to behave yourselves and be nice.
How about staying on the banks of the golden river, in peace and quiet? These idyllic cabins have their own sauna, and in the front yard you’ll find a kick sled. This traditional Finnish winter runabout will get you to the restaurant or activity sites in no time.
