Check it out in today’s Finnish installment of Dollars & Sense!
Rent A Glass Igloo
During the winter months, Igloo Village Kakslauttanen in Saariselka, Finland offers the possibility to spend the night admiring the Northern lights in a glass igloo. A glass igloo provides an one of a kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and millions of stars of the crystal clear sky in a comfortable room temperature. Built from a special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays a normal level. It also prevents the glass from not getting white frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds.
Take A Helsinki Sightseeing Tour
The Finnish capital is a city of parks, forests and water. Helsinki has historic architecture that recalls its Russian and Swedish past and modern buildings from famous Finnish designers, as well as excellent museums, superior shopping, animated nightlife, and the UNESCO-listed Suomenlinna Maritime Fortress.
See the beauty of this stunning Nordic city on an introductory sightseeing tour with live commentary from a knowledgable guide. A great way to get orientated with the city, particularly for first time visitors.
The city tour takes in the most interesting parts of Helsinki, such as the historical center with Senate Square, the Presidential Palace, City Hall, the Parliament building, Finlandia Hall and the Opera House.
