Spend The Night In a Glass Igloo Looking Up At The Northern Lights

If you’ve ever wanted to bring the most fantastical experience to reality, we have found something just for you- a luxury glass igloo where you can view the Northern Lights. Personally, I believe most of us long for a greater understanding, and to feel like we are part of something much much larger than ourselves. When we take a glimpse at the night sky, we certainly start to feel that sense of oneness and sense of belonging within ourselves.

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is a visual experience unlike anything else on planet earth. Predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions. Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind. When charged particles from the sun strike atoms in Earth’s atmosphere, they cause electrons in the atoms to move to a higher-energy state. When the electrons drop back to a lower energy state, they release a photon: light. This process creates the beautiful aurora.

Now, these magnificent lights are stunning on their own, but now there’s a whole new way to enjoy them: in a luxury glass igloo.

ArtFido informs us a little more about the place, “Situated on the shores of Lake Ranuanjärvi, the Arctic Fox Igloos puts our front and center for Finland’s nightly phenomenon. Rooms are located in a glass dome-like structure offering a kitchenette and double bed. Facing the lakeshore, each one is immersed in the arctic landscape while its remote setting makes it a prime location for viewing the Northern Lights.”

“A timber box on the forest side of the cabin houses a bathroom and a private sauna. Although the views are surreal, there’s plenty more to do than gaze into the snowy abyss. The property offers a series of arctic safaris where guests can explore the wilderness on snowmobiles, huskies, or reindeer. During the warmer months, take a fatbike tour of the Ranua forests, meet the local polar bears, or canoe across the lake right out your front door.”

Let’s take a look at the Arctic Fox Igloos in Finland:

For starters, the glass, dome-like structures offer overnight stays with unobstructed views of the surrounding, peaceful environment.
