Of Course You Want to Watch the Northern Lights From a Glass Igloo
North of the Arctic Circle — heaven
Located up near the Arctic Circle in parts of Sweden and Finland, Lapland is home to attractions like the Northern Lights, Santa’s hometown and ice-covered F1 tracks you can actually drive on.
Also, and this makes a snowplow-load of sense given the climate, igloos.
Created by a foreigner who visited the province’s Finnish side and wanted to share what he saw with the rest of the world, Levin Iglut Golden Crown is a family-owned business that gives guests the chance to take in Lapland’s scenic landscape from the comforts of a glass-ceilinged igloo.

Although many guests choose to remain in their igloos, Levin Iglut also offers on-site dining at Aurora Sky, an 80-seat restaurant serving local favorites and traditional Scandinavian fare — including reindeer. (Don’t mention it to Santa.)
Available for year-round bookings so midnight sun fans have the option to get their 24-hour light fix as well, a night in one of the igloos starts around $470.
Consider asking jolly old St. Nick for a reservation.
