What is a glass igloo?

Like many others, as you scroll through social media, you may have come across captivating photos of distinctive glass-domed structures set against Lapland’s breathtaking winter landscape. These structures are commonly referred to as glass igloos or glass cabins, and they come in various shapes and sizes. What unites them all are the breathtaking glass windows that offer an expansive view of the night sky. Now, let’s take a closer look at the glass igloos that are available for you at Apukka Resort.

Glass igloos in a nutshell:

  • Buildings with large windows for great sky views.
  • Ideal for Northern Lights viewing.
  • Comfortable even in cold winter months.
  • Available in various sizes, including two-story options.

Aurora Cabin

The Aurora Cabins pioneered the concept of glass igloos at Apukka. At the heart of every Aurora Cabin is its heated panorama glass roof, ensuring an unobstructed view of the Arctic sky, free from frost and snow. While they are an ideal choice for couples or friends (as the twin beds can be separated), these cabins also have a pull-out sofa for added convenience. And, in case you’re wondering, yes, all our Aurora Cabins feature curtains for privacy and a private bathroom for your ease.

If you desire more room and an enhanced experience, the Aurora Cabin Queen is a delightful choice. This glass igloo not only provides additional space but also features a comfortable queen-sized double bed for a cozier stay. It’s positioned a stone’s throw away from picturesque Lake Olkka, which shows its beauty especially during the autumn and early winter seasons. Every element has been thoughtfully curated to create an inviting atmosphere that harmonizes with the natural beauty of the surrounding wilderness.
