The atmospheric igloos offer real beds with sleeping bags and faux fur throws inside the snowy interior. They are also equipped with LED lights, but owners ask guests to bring their thermals to counter the freezing temperatures.

Other necessary items for your trip include a flashlight because complete darkness isn't always the most romantic.

Luckily you don't need to worry about breakfast as it's included in the stay, although guests are advised to stock up on any food essentials before their visit as the nearest supermarket is 10km away.

Wondering where exactly you go to the toilet? Never fear, guests can use the facilities in the family's neighbouring ranch - which also has a communal kitchen and living room.

Depending on the time of year you visit, travellers can watch the Northern Lights above or visit the nearby Kopara Reindeer Park. If you've got a penchant for skiing, the Pyhä Ski Resort is a must.

Appearing on AirBnB, owner Antti describes the lodgings, which can accommodate up to four people: "Snow igloo with real beds inside. Nice atmosphere with led lights and white walls.

"Outside the igloo is possibility to see northern lights if you are lucky. Come to Lapland and explore the wilderness.

"It's always minus degrees' inside the igloo. We provide warm sleeping bag but you should bring your thermos layers, warm hat, socks and cloves. Also headlight or flashlight is handy. Warm apartment available 24 h in case of cold feet."

Let's be honest, it's not a stay for the faint-hearted but you'd definitely wouldn't forget it.
