Stay in glass igloos and log cabins with extraordinary views. They were designed so visitors can enjoy the Northern Lights in their full glory. Rooms fill up quickly as this time of year is one of the most popular. Vacationing there alone is an amazing experience even if you don’t catch the lights. You can go on a husky and reindeer safari, ice fishing expeditions and snowmobile trips in the winter. Boarding an icebreaker cruise is also popular.
