One of the best place I have visited. I stayed in a glass Igloo which was a unique experience. Though the size of Igloo is very small and is cramped. The surroundings are all covered in snow but very well kept by the staff. The Sauna is fantastic. The icing on the cake is the

Oh where to begin, a series of misses. The hotel is very beautiful and has a lot of charm. I don't know if its expanded too fast and they don't have the systems in place to manage client volume, or what the issues are, but the operations and management were beyond disorganized.

Single beds in hospital style for a married couple with not-so-nordic-feel zebra covers. And if you stand up - people can see you. And if you go to the toilet - people also can see you. Luxury? Mmmh me thinks not.
This is where you would shower, in the cold
Not sure if a blue plastic soviet era toilet classifies as luxury?

Paid when we checked out. They were the Same prices they quoted us when we reserved. I’m not sure about going to local places yourself. We did everything through the resort.

Hi! You will have so much fun! I would do the husky’s am because then you can use a go pro or video your ride, and visit the dogs in daylight also you might get to hold a puppy! You get suited up for the ride. Not sure how you are going Aurora hunting by quad bikes? Anyway be prepared to be suited up again. Remember it gets dark around 2.00pm, also pray it doesn’t snow at night, clear sky equals Aurora! We got up in the early hours of the morning 3am as soon as we saw the stars out and were very lucky to see it low on the horizon 2 nights in a row. Great photos! You can sleep anytime! Get an Aurora Ap so this will tell you when it’s strong enough to see or wake up call. Enjoy those gorgeous dogs! Have a fabulous time in that magical place!

I went in December, but I booked it three weeks ago, you should do the same, if you're going with three people than I advise you to book Kelo-glass Igloo

"Keto rooms have sauna and the igloo attached , don't depend on the in house Aurora Alarm"
"We had Kelo-Glass Igloo 72, great location for watching the northern lights."
"If you like more privacy and peace opt for the East Village. If you want a little more entertainment then go for the West village."
"i stayed in the East Village and loved it."
"Room choice will depend on your budget. If in a cabin choose one close to reception! Glass Igloos 1 to 15."
