You can upgrade your experience by swapping either your first or last night of hotel accommodation with one of these three fantastic stays in unique accommodation:
Snow Igloo: Spend an extraordinary night in a traditional snow igloo! Igloos have been used in the Northern countries for accommodation during centuries. The temperature outside can drop down to minus thirty degrees and your double bed is made of snow, but the inside temperature stays moderate. Soft and warm mattress, thick sleeping bags and hot juice ensure a warm and comfortable night. The night will be memorable! Sleeping bags and hot drinks included.
Aurora Dome Glamping: Try "glamping" or glamour camping under the northern lights! The Aurora Dome is a luxury tent, a very comfortable way to spend a night in the wilderness. The tent has a cosy bed and a fireplace, and see through side walls so you can gaze towards the northern sky with a view over the Torasjärvi Lake. The scenery to the untouched Lappish wilderness is breathtaking even on cloudy nights! Sauna, toilet and shower facilities are located nearby (50m away).
Arctic Firefox Lodge: spend a night in privacy and luxury in a lodge with it's own private sauna, and panoramic views across Lake Jeris and from your bed.
