Lapland, in northern Finland, borders Sweden, Norway, and Russia. It’s one of the most sparsely populated places on Earth and is famed for its stunning subarctic landscape, northern lights, and midnight sun.
Although it’s a popular destination in winter, Lapland is a magical place to explore year-round. The climate and ecosystem are so varied that those living in Lapland mark eight seasons rather than four. Frosty winter, snowdrift spring, ice-run spring, nightless night, harvest, fall colors, first snow, and Christmas-time polar nights are all signs of change and are celebrated with respect to the environment. Because of this, visitors can have a very different experience depending on the month of their vacation. It’s worth planning a trip around what outdoor activities are of interest. What you don’t need to think too much about is where to stay.
Regardless of the season, accommodations such as this glass igloo village in Levi offer a unique way to enjoy the otherworldly destination.

About Golden Crown Levin Iglut
To match the one-of-a-kind character of Lapland, the region is home to exceptional accommodations. From treehouse hotels to glass igloos at Golden Crown Levin Iglut, there is no need to stay in a bog-standard hotel.
The family business now has 27 luxury insulated and heated glass igloos with private bathrooms and showers. Each igloo offers breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness and is located a short five miles away from the well-known Levi Ski Resort. The spacious igloos have been designed to provide visitors with an unparalleled view of the northern lights. The comfortable beds are motorized so guests can move into their preferred viewing angle. All igloos are also constructed from non-fogging glass, so nothing can obstruct the overhead spectacle.
There are two different styles of igloos to choose from. The large suite igloos are perfect for families or those wanting extra space. The spacious pods can sleep up to four guests. Delux and superior igloos sleep two comfortably and come with a modern kitchen and bathroom.
Guests can also enjoy the night sky from The Northern Lights House which has a sauna and a private terrace with a hot tub.
Golden Crown is a local favorite for its outstanding restaurant, Utsu. On the lower level, you can dine by a cozy fireplace, while the upstairs floor has stunning views of the sky. The Scandinavian-inspired seasonal menu celebrates local ingredients such as mushrooms, berries, and lichen that are foraged from the forest.
