Hotel Kakslauttanen: An Arctic Adventure

Located in frosty Finland, Hotel Kakslauttanen is a snow bunny's polar paradise. The resort offers an authentic Lappish experience with its cozy cabins and icy igloos. (Yes, that's right actual igloos.) In the winter months, Kakslauttanen's guests can opt for the ultimate snowed-in experience.

At Igloo Village Kakslauttanen, you can snuggle up in a down sleeping bag and enjoy the serene silence in your very own snow igloo. Or, you can choose to admire the northern lights and starry sky from inside a (thermal) glass igloo. But the luxurious lodgings are just the tip of the iceberg.

The versatile landscape of Northern Finland is perfect for outdoor activities and classic winter sports like downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowboarding. More adventurous guests can test out the challenging tracks while ice-karting, take a quick dip in an ice hole, or strap on snow shoes and trek through deep, untouched snow for miles on end.

You can catch your dinner on an ice-fishing expedition, admire the frozen Arctic landscape on an Ice Breaker Sampo trip, drive a snowmobile through a mountainous trail, go dog sledding, or relax in your personal reindeer sleigh. It's a true Winter Wonderland.

But what's a trip to the Arctic without a good ole' Saint Nick sighting? After all of these years of sneaking down your chimneys, Santa is finally inviting you into his merry mighty kingdom. Santa, the hard-working elves, and his famous reindeer offer visitors the exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes at his busy workshop. With amazing attractions, incredible activities, and one very jolly VIP, Santa's Resort has become Kakslauttanen's coolest attraction.

Tell Santa that this time we're comin' to town.
