Winter is a magical time of the year and everything is in a different kind of bloom. The air is crisp, the trees are naked and the green grass and soil forcibly frozen together. The red berries that fall on the ground at the end of summer are glued to the frozen ground covered in a thin layer of snow and the little that is left of the patches of green grass is mother nature’s own Christmas decoration. Magic is in the air.
Tromso is right in the middle of the planet’s Northern lights belt, and any flare of solar storms on the surface of the sun will be spotted here!

Hotel and Igloo Village Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, half an hour drive from Ivalo airport, is a perfect location for a holiday to escape the rush and bustle of city life. It has a beautiful location amidst the untouched Lapp wilderness, 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Far away from city lights, the place is also excellent for viewing the aurora borealis, or northern lights, whenever they adorn the dark sky with their colourful waves. Guests will enjoy comfortable lodgings in rustic log cabins which reflect the traditional Lapp style. Each cabin has a peaceful location not too close to the other ones. The resort provides an exotic holiday experience with an opportunity to sleep the polar night in a glass igloo with normal room temperature and panoramic view of the night sky. Here you will experience the true nature of the Arctic winter and still enjoy modern conveniences. For the adventurous minds there is also a possibility to enjoy the night in an igloo made of snow. Imagine sleeping in a temperature below zero, warm and snug in your padded sleeping bag, breathing in crisp, fresh air.
Winter in Iceland is a fantastic season to experience the majestic might of glaciers. These powers of nature have forcefully carved Iceland‘s landscape on their ponderous march to the sea. Icelandic glaciers have been the focus of international news programmes and movies; they are worth a closer look, and this new driving vacation gives more time in prime glacial areas.
