Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for one night with a package from secret escapes, after staying two nights at holiday village gulo gulo. The igloo is very small but fine for the one night. Tea and coffee making facilities but we had to boil the kettle on the floor next to the bed as there is not enough room in the kitchenette. Nothing to do here but sit back and chill. The restaurant and reception aren’t currently open, so a minibus takes you back to gulo gulo village for food. Beautiful setting.

We stayed 3 nights at the Holiday Village Gulo Gulo and spent the fourth night here. The igloos are fabulous - very modern, clean and well equipped with everything you need for a one or two night visit. They are perfectly placed in front of a beautiful lake (which we had snowmobiled across that morning on a trip to a reindeer farm) and the transfers to and from the holiday village for dinner were well organised. The sauna was an added bonus! I would definitely recommend a night in an igloo.

We stayed in a beautiful, moder and well equipped glas igloo for one night. It was quite packed for two adults and two kids, but had all the things we needen (n.b. no TV at all in the igloo). The wather was quite poor so we could not see anything from the igloo :( The biggest fuss was with the reception, which is not in the same location as the igloos are so we had to drive back and forth trying to find it. Also the igloos are placed in a quite stupid manner so you are practically watching throught the neighbors windows when having your evening tea. Otherwise it was nice stay with very warm and welcoming staff.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cozy igloo. The igloos have quite good space and there is even a small sauna that fits two persons. The glasses in the ceiling have heating that you can turn on in case it snows (which it did). It has a small but well equipped kitchen. The reception was friendly and helpful and we can definitely recommend this accomodation!

Our igloo cottage was great. Fantastic beds, nice kitchenette and even sauna. Heating/air con unit was in an awkward place right above bathroom door so bathroom was icy cold and the fresh air didn't come to igloo part of the cabin. Had to warm up sauna to have a shower and open the door of the cabin afterwards to get the moisture out of the whole cabin. I found 26 electric outlets in our cabin ! Charging a smartphone has never been this easy. Take away breakfast wasn't really a breakfast. Lot of things to drink but only one dry factory made sandwich that I actually ate in the evening and bought foods for breakfast from Ranua "city". Plenty of parking space, area looked still quite new and partly unfinished. It was weird to stay in a place that doesn't have a tv. Wifi was great, igloo was like Faraday cage so Wifi was a must. Igloos are quite close to each other but there was a lot of curtains to close and some problem solving to do to get most out of the lake view without feeling like you're in a fish bowl. Friendly staff and we even got free tickets to zoo. Good value for money at least with the last minute-off season price I got.

Warm and snuggly inside. Like all Finnish accomodation it has a cute sauna and kitchen. Flick of a switch and the heated windows melt off all the snow. No N lights but somehow it didn't matter. View over the frozen lake was so beautiful. Cosy restaurant. Food fine but expensive. You have a kitchen so can cater for yourself. They take you to the supermarket on way from airport. Buy the "Arctic Fox Igloos" pretty bars of chocolate as a souvenir. Delicious.

The igloo rooms are so nice and very convenient. Bathrooms have their own sauna too. It was such a great experience for us. The breakfast was great too. Everything was delicious. The staff was nice too. My only critic is about the dinner. The menu has 3-4 options of meal. However the menu is the same and did not change for the 3 nights we stayed there. For example, you can pick chicken or reindeer. But their seasonings and dressings were the same. So if you pick reindeer after you picked chicken (to eat sth different) the dressing, the spices were the same. I really would prefer sth different :)

Wow. What an amazing experience. From the moment of arriving the team couldn’t be more helpful. The location is stunning and the perfect place to stop and appreciate the beauty of it all, both the landscape and snowy views during the day (March visit) and starry sky at night. Breakfast and dinner were excellent (you pre order your dinner earlier in the day). Well appointed igloos, really comfortable, heated floors and windows. Includes sauna, robes, shower/hair gel, hair drier, mini kitchen with cooking facilities and a few tea bags/coffee to get you started. You can’t get lunch here but they stopped off on our airport transfer to a supermarket on route for us buy supplies and milk!

We stayed 2 nights at the Arctic Fox Igloos. We had such an amazing time in this unique, beautiful place. Room: we requested a lake front igloo (highly recommend!) and it was incredible. The views from the bed of the frozen lake and northern lights (if you are lucky) are so unique and beautiful. The igloo is well appointed with a little dining table, 2 burner stove, microwave, kettle - really everything you need. The sauna in the bathroom was so nice and relaxing, we used it everyday. Food: we were very impressed with the breakfast and dinner. We didn’t eat lunch there. The breakfast buffet was great with fresh made croissants, pastries, fruit, several kinds of meat, eggs, juice, etc. Dinner is a set menu with appetizer, main, and dessert. We had chicken soup which was the best chicken soup we’ve ever had. The appetizer is served buffet style with bread and better. There are 4 choices for dinner - reindeer curry (highly recommended), chicken yellow curry (highly recommended), veggie stir fry, and a fish dish. Our currys came with rice and the flavors were amazing. There were different chefs on duty each night and there was a difference in flavors in the same dishes as they put their own spin on them. How nice! Dessert is served buffet style as well. We had a delicious chocolate mouse cake one night and berry/fruit cake the other. Activities: this place does a great job of coordinating with the Gulo Gulo resort for all of the safaris and activities. The transfers back and forth were always on time. At the igloos you can go ice swimming, walk on the frozen lake, or curl up and relax in your igloo. We were so lucky to see the northern lights as we had clear skies and perfect conditions. There is a little alarm in your room that will notify you when they come out, in case you are asleep. Overall this is one of the best and most relaxing holidays we’ve had. The unique rooms, beautiful nature surroundings, and friendly staff made this place. We highly recommend it!!

Stayed here for one night in February for a different experience. We did this a part of a three night overall stay with the other two nights at Holiday Village Gulo Gulo. The site comprises of twenty glass fronted igloos in two rows of ten. We stayed in No. 20 which is front row at the end next to the forest area with great views of the lake (frozen and snow covered when we stayed). The extensive snow is dealt with daily so going out for a walk is fairly simple. The igloos have basic facilities but include a sauna. The igloos are warm and have heated glass to melt any settled snow for good views. The site has a restaurant with very nice food but not a huge selection, Tasty though and sensibly priced, considering they have a captive audience. This experience is expensive but worth doing once.
