Crystal Palace In The Finnish Snow
If you happen to pay Santa Claus a visit this Winter, we can recommend the Igloo Hotel in Kakslauttanen to spend the night in. This amazing experience hotel is set up decentralized, consisting of 20 seperate igloos all offering its guests a great view on the Northern sky. Right in between nothing but white snow, the cosy glass capsules offer a clear and, at the same time, a very intimate setting for an overnight experience. The hotel is also equipped with a snow restaurant providing seating for 50-150 people.
“Glass igloo provides an one of a kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and millions of stars of the crystal clear sky in a comfortable room temperature. Built from a special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays a normal level. It also prevents the glass from not getting white frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds.”
Decentralized hotels, as we call them here, seem to be popular. Before Bit Rebels pointed us to the Igloo Hotel, we already wrote about the floating capsule hotel concept by Ivan Filipovic and about the pretty Juvet Landscape Hotel by the Norwegian architects of Jensen & Skodvin. We’re always happy to hear about more splendid hotel concepts, so drop us a line if you have some tips!
