I went at the end of November and it was just perfect. It was only -9 C. I hear it gets much much colder in January and February. I stayed in the glass igloo, which was fun and allows visitors to fall asleep under the Northern Lights and stars. Make sure you take a Husky Drive, it is worth the... More

*Exclusive location* to see the Aurora Borealis. 10-15km away from the bright lights of the city centre. *Good food*. Half board with yummy breakfast and 4 course dinner. Options for vegetarian as well. *Great Excursion* with comparable prices. Outsourced and still cheaper than if you had booked directly with the vendor. So don't waste your time looking around. *Service* Great... More

Sitting here at breakfast on our second day at Kakslouttanen fuming😤 It's hard to give a balanced review of a place when one incident clouds all the other good things. My wife is desperate to see the aurora borealis so I spent £5000 to fly us up to Helsinki (yes she is worth it) spent a great night in the... More

We stayed in two kelio igloos in late October anticipating an abundance of snow. Instead the ground was barren and and remiss of such. Signage to the west village was extremely poor within their occupied land. Many new buildings were being constructed and debris was left littered in the terrain. Off cut timber and other items from labor sites unattractively... More

In two words; don't bother. It's certainly a "once in a lifetime experience" because anyone who has been once and got treated like we did will never want to go back! Kakslauttanen is basically a cash-grab resort that promises the world and delivers none of it. The positives: - The scenery is beautiful. We didn't get to see the Northern... More

I'm not one for writing reviews but felt I had to about this place as the poor reviews on here made me nervous about going after I booked. Maybe we got extremely lucky, maybe i'm easily pleased or maybe peoples expectations are higher but I couldn't fault this place. Firstly, I booked through arctic direct and the booking process was...

Staff were amazing and assisted with all items. Stayed in igloo first night and cabin next 2. Both were great. Easy access to all activities. Included breakfast and dinner. Lunch was expensive at 22euro / person that was soup and lettuce.
