In Autumn, fishing trips are popular, as well as gold panning, mountain biking and Northern Lights tours, while summer activities include ATV safaris, white water kayaking, hiking and midnight sun-spotting.
Food & Drink
There is a restaurant located at each village with both the East Village’s Kelo restaurant and West Village Aurora featuring a la carte menus boasting the best of local Lappish cuisine; the latter is also home to the famous glass igloo bar. Private group dining and events for up to 250 can be enjoyed at the Celebration House, Korsu restaurant or Smoke Sauna restaurant.
A range of accommodation options are available at Kakslauttanen. The popular Glass Igloos can accommodate 2-4 guests and offer uninterrupted views of the clear Finnish sky. The newly built Kelo-Glass Igloos combine the warmth of the chalets with the uniqueness of the glass igloos. Sleeping up to six they feature a private sauna, separate bedroom with glass roof, and kitchenette. The large and impressive Log Chalets accommodate up to ten people and have a charming, rustic interior to match the untouched surrounds. Offering a once-in-a-lifetime stay, the Snow Igloos’ indoor temperatures stay at a steady minus three to minus six, and include all the essentials needed for a comfortable night. The Queen Suites, Wedding Chamber and Traditional House are suitable for couples and feature a bathroom, bathtub, sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. The Gold Digger’s Chalets sit at the banks of the golden river and include their own sauna for utter relaxation.
Located 250km north of the Arctic Circle, Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort sits amongst the wilderness but still benefits from convenient air and land transport connections. Ivalo International Airport is a 30-minute drive away and welcomes regular flights from Helsinki International Airport.
