Holiday overview

This five-day itinerary combines a stay in a glass igloo on top of a remote fell. Located in Finnish Lapland, both of these cosy retreats offer plenty of excellent Northern Lights viewing opportunities. 

Start your trip with a one-night stay in Levi glass igloos. Surrounded by stunning arctic scenery, these secluded igloos offer first-class viewing of the Northern Lights amidst the spectacular surrounding wilderness. You'll then transfer to Hotel Ylläshumina, where you'll spend the next three nights of your holiday enjoying a range of exciting winter activities.
