In our book, Christmas is not real without snow. If you think likewise, you’re probably planning this year’s winter holiday trip to someplace with fresh powder. So, let us make a suggestion: the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland($210+/night).
Located close to the Urho Kekkonen – Finland’s largest national park (yet just 30 minutes away from the nearest international airport), this fairy-tale like resort offers an array of different accommodation choices: The glass igloos are perfect for romantic nights under the bright starry sky, while the Kelo-Glass igloos are pretty much the same thing, attached to a log cabin with room for up to 6 people, and featuring a private sauna, fireplace, kitchenette, and a bedroom with a stunning glass roof.
You can also sleep in snow igloos, in various sized cabins with queen suites, and even in Santa’s home. As for activities, you can try husky or reindeer safaris, ice fishing, skiing, snowmobile/snow-tank explorations, and more. But the night’s auroras are the big show.
