Go in search of the remarkable “Aurora Borealis”, more commonly known as the Northern Lights. Should you be fortunate enough to see them, then what better way to watch them dancing across the winter sky but from the warmth of your own bed. Sleeping in a Glass Igloo and Glass Box rooms are genuinely once in a lifetime experiences not to be forgotten but there is plenty more on offer in this genuine winter wonderland from husky sledding, traditional Lappish dinner including the ice lake plunge, hot tub, saunas, dinner in an ice restaurant and much more. You’ll also get to learn about the culture of the indigenous Sami people in Northern Finland, have the opportunity to attend a wild food cooking workshop and for the more active ski in Finland’s premier ski resort in Levi. Those in the festive spirit can even visit Father Christmas who is available to visit throughout December and the beginning of January!

The Gallery



Lapland is a remote, relatively untouched territory located in the Arctic Circle and offers one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. It’s impossible not to be taken in by the natural beauty of the pristine blankets of snow that cover the pine forests and frozen lakes. The temperatures in peak winter can reach very frosty temperatures some way below zero so it’s best to wrap up warm and keep yourself busy. Fortunately, there is plenty to keep you occupied whether you’re wanting to get active or simply relax.

Accommodation in Lapland:

Includes Glass Igloo Huts

Includes Glass Box Hotel

Includes Inari Wilderness Hotel

The Season

The Northern Lights are typically visible from late August to April but please do remember there are no guarantees, the ideal conditions are a clear but dark night with no clouds or full moon (it’s still possible to see them with a full moon but better when it’s not so bright). The Glass Igloos are available from late September through to the end of March.

September & October: The autumn months tend to be cold but generally above freezing but with snow a possibility rather than a certainty. Ideal for those not so comfortable with the cold!

November – March: The coldest months of the year with snow essentially guaranteed and November through to February the daylight is brief with the sun only being up for 5 to 6 hours. December and early January is the ideal time for families wanting to visit Santa Claus.

The Duration & The Calendar

The Lapland Experience takes place over five nights and six days and typically commences every Wednesday during the season. So should you wish to travel for longer, then please let our team know and they’ll be more than happy to organise additional nights.

The calendar on the book now page shows exactly when trips are available throughout the season. As well as displaying which trip dates are fully booked or available, the calendar also highlights specific dates that have been discounted or are on special offer. Click here to see available dates and rates on our calendar.

The Highlights

There are plenty of reasons why we think the Glass Igloo Experience is a must do, but here are a few of our personal trip highlights convince you to come and join us.

The Northern Lights: The magical wonder that is the northern lights, many people spend years chasing them and the Arctic Circle in Lapland is one of the best places to possibly view them but no forget there are no guarantees.

The Activities: There is a very wide variety of activities, so there is something for everyone. Many of the activities are unique to the region so this trip offers a rare opportunity to experience them. The Husky Experience and the Traditional Lappish Dinners are must-dos.

The Scenery: Lapland is a breathtaking fairytale setting, a true winter paradise, with crisp winter nights you’ll never forget. If you visit in peak winter, the blanket of pristine white snow adds an extra layer of magic.

The Culture: In addition to the various traditional activities on offer it’s also fascinating to learn about the history and traditions of the indigenous Sami people.
