North Of Absolutely Incredible

Experience the infinite magic of an Arctic summer by immersing yourself in the sublime wilderness of Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Around 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, in a stunning and remote corner of Finland, lies the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. In a land where the summer sun is always peeking above the horizon, you will discover the meaning of true wilderness.

What makes summer all the more special in this precious and rare destination is that for so much of the year it is hidden beneath a beautiful white blanket.

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort houses its guests in brilliantly innovative and cosy accommodation. You can choose from Kelo-Glass Igloos and be surrounded by the splendour of the great outdoors, or go for a traditional log chalet, equipped with air-conditioning, fireplace, dining table, and kitchenette. All have attached washrooms, including a shower, and of course, a sauna.

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon only experienced above the Arctic Circle. It is a truly magical light that is well worth the journey. But spectacular visuals are not only found in the sky – Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is home to amazing local artwork, and there is even an art gallery to showcase the very best.

You may be out in the middle of nowhere, but you will never be short of things to do. The list of amazing opportunities is almost endless and includes traditional activities, such as panning for gold, mushroom and berry picking, visiting a reindeer farm and meeting with local indigenous people.

And then there is a whole host of exhilarating ways to experience the great outdoors, including quad biking, husky hiking, canoeing, river rafting and horse riding.

Finland is known as the Land of Thousand Lakes, and here at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort there is Lake Inari. This stunning expanse is perfect for fishing trips and boat rides. A journey out on to the quiet calm of Lake Inari is something you will never forget.

At Kakslauttanen Christmas is celebrated all year round – so why not book a private visit to Santa’s home during your stay and get festive in summer!

Utsjoki Arctic Resort

Kakslauttanen also has a new resort: the Utsjoki Arctic Resort. Described as a “A Drop of Paradise” on the border between Finland and Norway, Utsjoki Arctic Resort invites you to hit the trails and enjoy this breathtaking landscape. The resort is also home to Kelo- Glass Igloos, where beautiful mountain and river vistas provide a stunning panorama from your cosy interior.

The resort’s restaurant Pisara is set right above the river banks, so diners can enjoy the fantastic scenery of the Utsjoki and Teno rivers.

Fishing on a handcrafted boat in Utsjoki is a special way to relax whilst connecting with the traditions of this unique region. What better way can there be to spend a summer holiday?
