If you’ve always dreamed of sleeping under the beautiful Aurora Borealis, this is the perfect vacation destination for you. Finland’s Hotel Kakslauttanen consists of 20 thermal glass igloos offering up crystal clear views of the Northern Lights at several times throughout the year.

With very little trees and no light pollution, Finland’s Urho Kekkonen National Park is the perfect hotel for star gazers. Each room has been constructed using transparent thermal glass walls and ceilings that allow guests to take in the breathtaking starry night skies. The thermal glass also provides great insulation against the outside temperatures (which can drop to -22 degrees Fahrenheit), and also features frost prevention, so your view will never be interrupted. Located 250 km above the Arctic Circle, the hotel also boasts the largest smoke sauna in the world, along with an ice bar and snow chapel, restaurant, and a whole lot more. Every igloo hotel room also features a toilet and luxury beds, so you won’t miss a minute of the views.
