See the Northern Lights from a glass igloo in the middle of the Finnish wilderness

This far north, you can see the Aurora Borealis around 200 days a year. Glass igloos are available from August through April, which are the best time to see this natural light show.

I grewq up in Fort McMurray and saw this all the time! I hardly ever see the Northern Lights any more and I miss it! "I lived in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada for a year, and saw Aurora Borealis first hand, or first eye (lol)... it is beyond description, and photos don't do them justice..."

Aurora Borealis - Fairbanks, Alaska Truly amazing to see. Everyone stops what they are doing, to enjoy Mother Natures reward for freezing your butt off 9 months out of the year.
