Exotic night in a snow igloo

Welcome to Pyhätunturi, Lapland, explore the wilderness and experience unforgettable, authentic night in a snow igloo! A night in a snow igloo is an exotic experience that you will remember long! Snow igloos, with the real beds inside, are built every year. There is a cozy atmosphere with led lights and white walls. Here you get a good sleep in a warm sleeping bag.

It's always minus degrees' inside the igloo. We provide a warm area (base camp) just a short distance away, anyone with cold feet or other reasons you can sleep in one of the beds inside. 

There are no windows or a glass roof on snow igloo but if the sky is clear, with a luck, you can spot the Northern lights outside the snow igloo. With open landscape, Lucky ranch is an excellent place to spot the Northern lights as we are away from city lights.
