In the snow-capped mountains of Finland's Saariselka in winter, there are cottages made of ice or glass, and guests have the opportunity to bathe in the vast forested snowfield.
Located in the Saariselk Fell area of Finnish Lapland, Hotel Kakslauttanen offers traditional wooden houses with a private sauna, kitchenette and garden area. Here you can take part in snowmobiling and dog sledding.
The main restaurant serves Lapland specialities such as reindeer and char-grilled squid. The Snow Restaurant and Ice Bar are open during the winter season.
The 2 public saunas at Kakslauttanen Hotel have a shared terrace. Each sauna has a lounge with an open fireplace. The nearby ice cave is perfect for a cool break.
The hotel can arrange the Northern Lights Sightseeing Bus, the Arctic Ocean study tour and the Eskimo and Reindeer Hunting Tour. Cross-country skis, walking sticks and snowshoes can also be rented. Free Wi-Fi is available in the lobby of the hotel. Urho Kekkonen National Park is 50 km away.
