Looking for glass igloos, log cabins & lakeside summer accommodation for your holiday? Finnish Lapland has warm beds, soft pillows & stunning Arctic views for a perfect break.
Summers in Finnish Lapland are warm and welcoming, the Sun That Never Sets always in the sky. And there’s no reason why your summer accommodation shouldn’t be just as special. Here we’ve gathered some of the many, many ways you can spend your summer holiday in a glass igloo, a lakeside lodge, a luxury resort … the list is like a Lapland summer day. It just goes on and on and on …
The Best View in Lapland
It doesn’t get much better than this. Top Star Saariselkä’s Arctic Glass Cubes combine the novelty and wonder of a glass igloo, but with the conveniences and space of a more traditional hotel room. Enjoy the magnificent views of Kaunispää in Inari-Saariselkä, step out the door and into the UKK National Park, or just stay inside and enjoy the steamy sauna.
Dreaming of Magic
The magic waits just outside the windows, in the green trees that seem close enough to touch, in the blue sky that stays light and magical all year round. This is what staying in a glass igloo at Magical Pond in Ruka-Kuusamo means. Every igloo has its own small kitchen and bathroom, giving you full control of your time and your magical holiday.
Step into true Lapland luxury at the Sunday Morning Resort in Pyhä. With a large log-cabin lodge featuring a full dining room and restaurant as well as stylish hotel rooms, four separate apartments, and a large sauna (including traditional smoke sauna) by Lake Pyhäjärvi, Sunday Morning Resort offers full service luxury summer accommodation, making every sunny day like a perfect Sunday morning.
Watch Summer Float on by
Combine the magic of boating, camping, Midnight Sun and beautiful lake Ranuajärvi with a stay in Arctic Guesthouse’s Floating Igloos. Every igloo comes with its own bathroom, kitchenette, large floor to ceiling windows for enjoying the view, as well as a deck. Link up to four igloos for a once-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime floating party.
Your Journey Begins Here
There’s wilderness, and then there’s wilderness. And Samperin Savotta is the perfect place to experience true, epic wilderness on a scale not found anywhere else in Europe. Samperin Savotta combines convenient summer accommodation, including hotel rooms, scenic lakeside cottages, as well as offering excursions and expeditions into the grand nature of Savukoski.
Best of Both Worlds
You could be forgiven for thinking you had stepped 100 years in the past. Standing on the porch of the modern log cabin hotel rooms of Hotel Uitoniemi, you watch the beautiful summer sky glimmering in the water’s surface. But you know that only a short walk away and you’re in bustling downtown Kemijärvi. Traditional and modern—the best of both worlds.
The first gold prospectors that came to northern Lapland couldn’t Google accommodation options. They pitched tents and slept under the stars. Luckily for modern prospectors, there’s Tankavaara Gold Village in Sompio. You have your choice of the brand-new log cabin-styled hotel rooms, or you can stay in separate apartments. And for those who really want to get back to nature, Tankavaara even offers wilderness cabins reflecting the simple life of the original prospectors.
Watch the Midnight Sunset
End your summer the right way, at Naali Lodge in Posio. Nestled among boreal pines, encompassed by a string of lakes, Naali embodies the peace and quiet of Lapland. The Green Key-certified lodge offers you the chance to stay in two large log buildings built in the early 20th century. (Don’t worry; they were refurbished in 2018.)
