The Levi Igloos are located just seven miles from the bustling town of Levi and with unobstructed landscapes, glistening night skies and untamed wilderness they provide a welcome escape into Northern Finland.
Four premium and fourteen superior igloos make up the resort and each boast a kitchenette, ensuite and a motorised double bed in the centre. The pise de resistance, however, has to be the insulated glass ceilings that allow guests to star gaze from the comfort of their very own bed.
Families in Finland visiting Father Christmas are also catered for as the Northern Light House villa (with real ceilings, not glass) sleeps up to eight guests and is comprised of two suites (the Gold Suite and the Lapp Suite), a cosy den with a fireplace, outdoor hot tub, and sitting room with fantastic views over the mountains.
There is no restaurant at Levin Iglut (or Levi igloos in English), however food can be ordered in advance and is typically Finnish, making use of the local produce - think sautéed reindeer with lingonberries, or hot smoked Arctic char.
The nearby town of Levi boasts local bars, boutique shops and a range of eateries serving everything from fast food to five star cuisine. For the adventurous, snowmobile safaris, cross country skiing, dog sledding and reindeer safaris are just a handful of the exciting excursions available.
The glass roofs in the igloos are perfect for Northern Lights spotting, from the warmth of a bed, if you're lucky you might fall asleep under the green hue of the Aurora Borealis.
