A sensational Arctic adventure in a brand-new glass villa in Finnish Lapland – includes half board, all travel, Northern Lights snowshoe hike and snowmobiling

Nowhere else in the world offers a winter wonderland quite like Lapland; a frontier of frosty lakes, snow-dusted forests and mesmerising experiences. Scattered among snow-dusted firs in the secluded Iisakki Glass Village, these brand-new Scandi-chic villas are the perfect place to enjoy a magical Arctic adventure, with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass roofs offering endless vistas over the frozen wilderness.

Being so close to the Arctic Circle, Finland is one of the best places on earth to witness the incredible northern lights, and during your stay you’ll be whisked off on a guided snowshoe hike across the wintry plains in hopes of glimpsing this enchanting natural phenomenon. During the day, you’ll have plenty to entertain you, with adrenaline-inducing activities including a snowmobile introductory lesson. If you want to hit the slopes, the award-winning ski resort of Ruka is just a 10-minute drive away.

After a day in the snow, you can warm your cockles in one of two traditional Finnish saunas at the resort, or enjoy a refreshing dip in one of the outdoor whirlpool baths – there are even Saunayoga classes available for groups who want to relax the mind as well as the body. An when hunger strikes, there are many unique restaurants dotted throughout the village. In the evenings, head to your villa to cosy up among the furs and watch the carpet of stars dazzle through the glass ceiling.

Good to know

Please be aware that the Northern Lights are a naturally occurring phenomenon, so whilst we hope you'll get to see them, we can't guarantee they'll oblige.

Accommodation

The brand-new Glass villas ooze minimalist-chic, featuring traditional wood-panelled walls, faux-fur soft furnishings and Scandi-style touches, such as antlers hanging above the bed. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views across the pine-speckled surroundings to glistening Lake Rukajärvi, while the glass ceiling means you can watch the northern lights flicker across the sky from the comfort of your cosy bed. There’s a fully equipped kitchenette and bijou en-suite bathroom within the cabin.

Dining

The bountiful breakfast on offer will prepare you for a day in the snow, served at the rustic main house in the wider Iisakki Village resort. When it comes to dining, there are plenty of options to choose from: spend time in an underground forest restaurant (open on Wednesdays and Fridays), enjoy a Lappish three-course feast by candlelight at a charming Finnish cabin, or tuck in to warming stews and smoked meats at the log-built teepee (available for private groups upon reservation).

Wellness

There are two fantastic saunas at Iisakki Glass Village, both offering the traditional Finnish experience in idyllic surroundings. The lakeside sauna is arguably the cream of the crop, having been one of the first in the world to be awarded the Authentic Finnish Sauna Experience Certificate.

Kick back in the wood-panelled cabin and feel the heat gradually warm your limbs, while overlooking frost-tinged Lake Rukajärvi – the sauna takes four hours to reach full warmth, so you could easily while away a relaxing afternoon here.

Complete the indulgent experience with a dip in one of the outdoor hot tubs, enjoy a body treatment at the Ruka Beauty and Wellness, or if you’re feeling really brave, try your hand at ice-hole swimming at the lake. You can also join in one of the evening Saunayoga classes, designed to relieve body tensions and calm the mind.

Please note that treatments at Ruka Beauty and Wellness must be pre-booked prior to arrival.

Location


Iisakki Glass Village is the latest addition to the wider Iisakki Village resort, a smattering of historic red-wood cabins nestled among a secluded sugar-dusted wilderness of outstanding natural beauty. Perched on the edge of vast Lake Rukajärvi, this is a true winter wonderland, home to carpets of snow-topped pines, frozen creeks and roaming reindeer.

The resort has a wealth of activities on offer, ranging from snowshoeing at nearby Oulanka National Park to snowmobiling across the snowy plains to the Russian border. If that’s not enough, the charming ski resort of Ruka is just seven kilometres away, home to some of the best slopes in country, an attractive village centre and a whole host of winter activities.
