This unique resort began with four igloos and one man’s dream to provide the finest glass igloo experience in Lapland. Still family owned, Golden Crown now offers three styles of igloo, a first-class restaurant, and the luxurious Northern Lights House, a breathtaking experience for larger groups or families.

Located on a remote fell 180km north of the Arctic Circle, this extraordinary Lapland retreat is within easy distance of Finland's largest ski resort, Levi. Those keen to hit the slopes will find ski lifts just 5km away. The luxurious and spacious igloos are designed to show off the dancing skies in extraordinary comfort. Beds are motorised to allow your perfect viewing angle and all igloos have non-fogging glass so nothing can obstruct the spectacle overhead.
The Northern Lights House is built partly into the hillside and magnificently equipped – including a refrigerator embedded in the wall of the private sauna.
The hotel’s Aurora Sky restaurant is famed locally for the quality of its cuisine, and gives you a choice of experiences. Downstairs you’ll dine in the cosy glow of the fireplace, while the upper floor gives you a clear view of the sky. And if the Aurora Borealis does perform its magic, just lean back in your tilting seat and enjoy the show.

Golden Crown originated from my dream. I happened to end up on the slope of Utsuvaara where the view was unforgettable and I wanted to share it with others as well.
