Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Lapland, Finland, Scandinavia

Kakslauttanen is a family hotel in Finnish Lapland, 250km north of the Arctic Circle. It is located right on the edge of the wilderness, a mere stone’s throw from the Urho Kekkonen National Park, the largest of Finland’s national parks. This secluded log cabin village is the ultimate location for enjoying a multitude of Arctic adventures, such as winter safaris by reindeer, husky or snowmobile and also for viewing the Northern Lights (Aurora borealis).

As a highlight of your stay you can overnight in either a snow or glass igloo or, if that doesn’t appeal, a traditional log cabin or an authentic Finnish house.
