Imagine luxurious white fur and wool scrunching between your toes in front of an open fire, and gazing out from the cosiness of your Aurora Dome as the northern lights weave their magic above. This is the experience that Finland and Northern Scandinavia’s first official glamping destination holds for you.
Tell me more
This luxurious glamping destination 150 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle is an extraordinary place to experience the Lappish wilderness in comfort.
Here four igloo-shaped, Aurora Domes can be found perched on the banks of Lake Torassieppi. Fully insulated, warmly furnished and decorated in traditional Lappish style, each one has a transparent north-facing wall. With minimal light pollution, they are in the perfect setting for stargazing or Aurora spotting.
Your hosts here are The Pietikäinen family - Köpi, Maria, Niina, Jouni, Jussi, Antti and Kalle – who built the domes alongside their log cabin village on the site of an old reindeer farm. The family specialise in nature-friendly Arctic adventures and have dozens of wilderness experiences for you to choose from each day.
If it’s quiet contemplation you have in mind though, you’ll find that here too. Take inspiration from these words spoken by the Pietikäinens: ‘Feel the heartbeat of our wilderness and learn the secret of patience'.
