Travel Tip: Where to Stay in a Real Igloo

IglooAs long as the weather is getting colder, you may as well embrace it, right? How about sleeping inside a real igloo?

Ever heard of the Igloo Village? It’s a resort in Finland where you can sleep in a traditional snow igloo and the temperature dips as low as 20 degrees. Don’t worry, they supply you with a down sleeping bag and wool gear.

If sleeping in the cold isn’t for you, they also have all-glass igloos that stay warm—so you can spend the night viewing the Northern Lights from your bed, without braving the elements.

Or, head to Norway to the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel—believe me when I say this is a very cool place, both literally and figuratively. The temperature hovers around 19 degrees, but it’s worth checking out, just for the ice bar and the ice chapel.

Then there’s a whole series of igloo villages in Europe called Iglu-Dorf. You can find them in Zermatt, Gstaad, on the tallest mountain in Germany, and in Andorra. Best of all…they’re heated!

Don’t expect running water or electricity, but hey, it’s about the experience, right?
