Located in the Finnish Lapland, Arctic Guesthouse & Igloos is a unique place where people can stay in one of the 10 mobile igloos. The clever invention of glass igloos allowed experiencing natural phenomenons such as the aurora borealis through large panoramic glass panels. AuroraHut goes a step further. It's a movable glass igloo that operates the whole year. During the summer season, this “igloo boat” can move from one place to another powered by its own engine and during winter the igloos can be pulled around the frozen lake of Ranua with a snowmobile or an ATV.
This new kind of igloo accommodation is so versatile that many domestic travelers opt for it during the summer season when they are able to take the igloo anywhere within the lake and anchor it in the best spot. During winter the igloos are ideal partners for northern lights gazing as they can be parked in totally dark places without any light pollution or clouds. Interestingly, these igloos are considered as regular boats in Finnish law, hence why they can be moved around freely on the lake.
Apart from the 10 glass igloos in Ranua, there is a traditional B&B Guesthouse that has been serving its customers since the 1940s. The guesthouse has 17 rooms in total and a large communal space. The small family business can arrange nature activities year-round. In addition, there is a restaurant an old-fashioned lakeside sauna, and a traditional Lappish hut. All of which are freely available for the visitors.
