Aurora Breaks in Arctic Snow Hotel & Glass Igloos

Autumn is the best time for effortless Aurora break in Lapland. From September to November, the Northern Lights occur more often than during snowy and cold Midwinter. The weather during the day is usually pleasantly mild, and nights are often clear with starry skies – ideal for aurora hunting.

We have two different Early Bird Aurora Break packages (1-night or 2 nights) available from September 18th to November 19th. Both include transfers from Rovaniemi, 3 course dinner, and experiences for each day of your stay. In our igloos with 360° glass roof you can fall asleep while watching the lights in the sky, after enjoying dinner in our restaurant and raising a toast at SkyBar. Of course you can also book just accommodation in our glass igloos.

Arctic Snow Hotel and Glass Igloos is located by a lake in the small village of Sinettä, 30 min drive from Rovaniemi in Lapland (Finland). In the absence of city lights you have a good chance to spot Northern Lights and take amazing pictures. We can’t give a guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights during your stay, but when the conditions are right, chances are good.
