Sleep in the Arctic treehouse under the Northern Lights
Lapland is worth visiting just for the glimpse of the Northern Lights. Now, the way you usually see those would be in the freezing temperatures on a night tour. When I say freezing I mean excruciatingly painful cold -30C. Your alternative – picking an accommodation where you enjoy the same sight, just under the warm blanket and with a glass of wine.
What to know: Lapland offers multiple amazing accommodations to see the Northern Lights. My favorite so far – Arctic Treehouse. Located straight on the Arctic Circle, it offers small well-designed Scandinavian glass suites with a direct view on the winter forest, and even Northern Lights (if you happen to be lucky). As an added bonus – close proximity to the Santa Village. An important tip, though – bringing your own booz & food would not harm; the restaurant menu choice is quite limited and prices for alcohol go up to as much as $20 per cocktail.
When to go: open round-the-year, but your best shot would be December to March. On top of the chance to see Aurora, you’ll find plenty of incredible winter activities in the area.
How to book: either directly with the hotel, or through the Booking here. Booking in advance (especially for the winter period) is highly recommended.
One night stay will set you back $450-$600 per house, depending on the time of the year. Is it worth the money? Not sure. Is it an incredible experience? Absolutely. It might be just the best place for any romantic gestures. My perfect recipe for the place is simple: take someone to hug under the blankets, and bring a bottle or two of good wine. Unforgettable experience guaranteed.
