Photo property of Kakslauttanen
Welcome to Santa's Home, or to be precise - the arctic circle. Hotel Kakslauttanen is located along the road to the Arctic Sea, close to Urho Kekkonen National Park in one of the cleanest natural environments you will ever visit. Accommodation varies by size and design. Choose a personal glass igloo for 2 or 4 - perhaps the most unique part of the Hotel. Watch the Northern Lights through your glass ceiling. A log cabin is great for a longer stay, fit for a family or a group of friends. The rustic chic house is made from kelp pines and includes a fireplace and a sauna! Looking for a true northerner adventure? Spend a night in one of the snow igloos for a truly unique experience.
