Glass Igloo Hotel with views of Northern Lights!

There is a hotel in Kakslauttanen, Finland that offers something that most if not all other hotels do not... glass igloo hotel rooms. Each separate individual unit has a full glass enclosure that gives you the entire view of the starry-night sky. And if you are lucky a front-seat view of the Northern Lights...! 
The glass igloo is a a marvel of modern technology, which is based on a groundbreaking idea and years of research and development. Built from special thermal glass, the view stays clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds and, every evening, a hot sauna and a refreshing ice hole await you. In addition to the glass igloos, the resort features snow igloos, a snow restaurant, an ice gallery with ice sculptures, and a snow chapel for those we want to tie the knot. In total there are 20 glass igloos and 60 beds in the snow igloos, and the snow restaurant provides seating for 50-150 people. Igloo Village starts its season each year between December and January, depending on the weather conditions, and stays open until the end of April.
