Enjoy the Northern Lights in Extraordinary Settings in Finnish Lapland

Press Release  •  Sep 26, 2013 08:03 BST

Earth’s most spectacular light show, the Aurora Borealis, can now be viewed in a range of purpose-built spaces from bubble pods to luxury hotel suites in Finland.

The Northern Lights are visible on roughly 200 nights a year – or every other clear night – in Finnish Lapland.

If gazing at the sky in crispy winter air is not your thing, simply add comfort. Here are a few tips on keeping cosy under the Aurorae.

Wilderness Hotel Nellim – Aurora Bubbles and Aurora Camp

The tiny village of Nellim by Lake Inari in Northern Lapland lies in the middle of the finest Lappish scenery. Wilderness Hotel Nellim’s Aurora Bubbles are terrific little heated pods for viewing the Northern Lights.

Try also their Aurora Camp and Northern Lights search by snowmobile.

Eagle’s View Suite in Hotel Iso-Syöte

Iso Syöte is the southernmost fell in Finland, an hour and a half from the city of Oulu.

The Eagle’s View Suite is the crown jewel of Hotel Iso-Syöte. The bedroom is held up by a tree trunk in the middle of the suite. With a glass ceiling and a double bed, the Northern Lights won’t be viewed anywhere as exquisite as this. The suite also features a jacuzzi, a luxury bathroom and a private sauna.

Levi Igloos and Northern Lights House

The 12 igloos with glass ceilings are situated on Utsuvaara fell, 10 kilometres from ski and holiday resort Levi in Kittilä. Watch the Aurorae blazing in the sky with a terrific view over the surrounding winter wonderland.

The Levi Igloos Northern Lights House is a villa for 4-8 people with two bedroom suites, a fireplace, a sauna, and a panoramic terrace with a hot tub.

What Causes the Northern Lights?

In Finland, nights are dark enough for Aurora viewing from late August to April. See aurora information by the Northern Lights Club in Luosto.
