CANNOT BEGIN TO IMAGINE!
The Igloo Village in Kakslauttanen, Finland is like the Rolls-Royce of ice hotels. Each igloo is equipped with glass that allows you to gaze at the northern lights and millions of stars, all while relaxing comfortably in your warm room. The glass igloo is a a marvel of modern technology, which is based on a groundbreaking idea and years of research and development. Built from special thermal glass, the view stays clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds and, every evening, a hot sauna and a refreshing ice hole await you. In addition to the glass igloos, the resort features snow igloos, a snow restaurant, an ice gallery with ice sculptures, and a snow chapel for those we want to tie the knot. In total there are 20 glass igloos and 60 beds in the snow igloos, and the snow restaurant provides seating for 50-150 people. Igloo Village starts its season each year between December and January, depending on the weather conditions, and stays open until the end of April.
Bucket list item #1: The igloo village at Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland, where you can see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) from inside a cozy igloo.
A romantic night under the stars is one thing, but a crystal clear view of the Northern Lights from your own private igloo is definitely another treat entirely. The Igloo Village of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland boasts 20 thermal glass igloos that allow visitors to enjoy incredible views of the Aurora Borealis from the warmth and comfort of their own hut.

Winter by Samuli Sivonen in Finland.
Lying, robed in snowy white That loosely flew to left and right -- The leaves upon her falling light -- Thro' the noises of the night, She floated down to Camelot:
A beautiful picture of a Finnish lake. No wonder so many Finns settled in Northern Ontario.
