Don't waste money on glass igloos, you can get a good view here (although you do have to stand out in the cold). The cabin is just a short walk from the lake, which provides a wide open view for seeing the aurora. We stayed for 2 nights and luckily we were able to see a somewhat strong display on one night. Inside the cabin there is a sauna and a functioning kitchen with utensils. Riita, the owner, picked us up from the airport and took us to the supermarket so we could buy groceries and prepare our own meals.
Riita isn't the warmest nor most talkative person, and initially we thought she was kind of unwelcoming. But she opens up if you start to chat with her, and she would do anything within reason. She's alright.
We visited a husky farm via her referral, Anne. It was only 2 hours but we had a great time riding the dog sled and seeing various arctic animals on the farm.More
