You don’t get to admire the Northern Lights every day. Therefore, it’s recommended to turn this unique moment into an outstanding one. This can be done by not only visiting the high altitude regions but also by picking an extraordinary place to stay. Our Northern friends know this too so there are enough places to choose from. We’ve selected the 5 most exceptional ones that go straight on our bucket list.
Kakslauttanen in Finland
We’ve written about this hotel before because it’s just too magical to ignore. The artic resort is located in Finland and consists of glass igloos so you can admire the Northern Light from your bed. Stunning!
The Treehotel in Sweden
We’ve also written a piece on this place before because it’s like nothing else in the world. Sleeping in a treehouse is already a childhood dream come true but add to that an incredibly cool and modern design, in the middle of the woods in Lapland ánd a view of the Northern Lights and you’ve got magic.
Manshausen Island Resort in Norway
From the middle of the woods in Sweden, we go to the seaside in Norway. Here you can find the Manshausen Island Resort with modern designed cabins placed just over the edge of the rocky cliffside. Add to that floor-to-ceiling high windows and you’ll feel like you can jump straight into that water. We wouldn’t recommend that but you can admire the beautiful Northern Lights from here.
Fogo Island Inn in Canada
No need to visit Scandinavia for the Northern Lights because it’s also a good excuse to visit Canada. Here you’ll find the Fogo Island Inn. A contemporarily designed cabin in the middle of nowhere, which gives a kind of dystopian feeling from the outside but from the inside you’ll have nothing but an amazing view.
5 Million Star Hotel in Iceland
Want to spend the night in a see-through bubble a bit closer to home? Instead of going to Finland you can visit Iceland because here you can find the 5 Million Star Hotel. We hope that ‘5 million’ refers to all the stars you’ll be able to see from here and not the price tag. Either way, you can spend the night in a heated bubble in the middle of nature so you can admire mother nature at its best.
