You Can Watch The Northern Lights From Your Bed At This Stunning Lapland Resort
Watching the Northern Lights flood the sky with electric pink and green would rank pretty high on most bucket lists.
But what about experiencing the magic of the Aurora from your own glass-roofed wooden cabin in the heart of Lapland?
At the brand-new Northern Lights Village, which opened on 1st November, you can do just that.
With their laser-heated glass roofs, the resort's Aurora Cabins treat guests to a starry winter's sky and the green glow of the Northern lights - all while wrapped up warm in bed.
Set within a snow-capped, forested landscape in Saariselkä, Northern Finland, the resort offers a true Arctic wonderland experience.
The cabin interiors create a cosy haven, kitted out with plush beds, a minibar, and private bathroom with shower.
Outside, snowy trees surround the resort and arctic foxes dash along forest trails, while over at the onsite reindeer paddock guests can watch and pet the reindeer.
The onsite restaurant Kota specialises in hearty local food, with a fireplace to warm frost-bitten toes.
Guests can personalise their Arctic experience with add-on adventures. See the wilderness from a different point of view with a night-time snow-mobile trip, or meet the resident team of huskies and take to the snow on a 'husky safari' dog sledding experience.
For travellers who prefer a hardy hike, cross-country skiing and snowshoe hiking are also available.
Chilly bones can be revived at the onsite spa, complete with hot tub, ice pool and sauna.
Mysticism has long surrounded the Northern Lights. Historically, the Aurora has been thought to contain magical powers, and the indigenous Sámi people of Northern Europe created shamanic drum ceremonies in tribute to the skies.
Looking at these pictures, it's not hard to see why.
The nearest airport is Ivalo Airport, 16.2 miles from the property. Free parking is available.
Northern Lights Village prices start from £441 per night, with breakfast and dinner included.
