Thermal Glass Igloos Offer Views of the Northern Lights at Finland's Hotel Kakslauttanen. 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.

The name is a play on Disneyland, but Banksy insisted the show was not a swipe at Mickey and co. “I banned any imagery of Mickey Mouse from the site,” he said. Works by 58 handpicked artists including Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer have been installed across the 2.5-acre site. What It Was Like Living Inside a Week of Fear and Tension in Paris.
