Glass igloo is a little cabin with glass dome or glass wall providing panorama view of the sky. There are no standard for glass igloo comfort. Some are luxury with all moderm facilities, private sauna, outdoor heated jacuzzi, while others might be simple authentic cabins or even mobile cabins with shared facilities. But common to all - extraordinary location next to the wilderness and view of the sky.

Today there are around 30 glass igloo hotels in Finland. 80% of glass igloo hotels are located in Finnish Lapland, above the Arctic circle due to the possibility of seeing the Northen Lights. All glass igloo hotels in Finland offer wide range of winter activities: husky safaris, visiting reindeer farms, snowmobile safaris, Aurora evening camps.
