If you’ve ever wanted to make the most fantastical experience a reality, we’ve found something just for you: a luxury glass igloo where you can can see the Northern Lights. Personally, I believe that most of us yearn for a deeper understanding and a sense of belonging to something much larger than ourselves. When we look at the night sky, we certainly begin to feel that sense of oneness and belonging within ourselves.
The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, provide a visual experience unlike any other on the planet. Predominantly found in high-latitude areas, auroras are caused by disruptions in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind. When charged particles from the sun collide with atoms in the Earth’s atmosphere, electrons in the atoms move to a higher-energy state. When electrons return to a lower energy state, they emit a photon: light. This process results in the stunning aurora.
These magnificent lights are stunning on their own, but there’s a whole new way to enjoy them: inside a luxury glass igloo.
Deep inside the snow-covered woodlands of Finland, you can find the Arctic Fox Igloos located at one of the shores of Lake Ranuanjärvi. You can see the Northern Lights from the comfort of your own bed if you stay in one of the luxurious igloos.
The bedroom features glass walls and a double bed. The room also includes a kitchenette and a private sauna. All of the igloos face the lake and are surrounded by stunning arctic scenery. Its remote location makes it the ideal location for viewing the Northern Lights. There are a variety of activities available in addition to the breathtaking view.
You can go on an arctic safari and explore the wilderness on snowmobiles, reindeer, or huskies. During the summer, you can take a tour of the Ranua forests, canoe across the lake, or meet local polar bears.
