Luxury Arctic Circle Hotels For a Winter Escape 01


Designed by a local architect who drew inspiration from the traditional shelters built by Northern Scandinavia’s natives, this exclusive and remote property is what dreams are made of! It sits on a real-life winter wonderland and the property includes 300 hectares of private woodlands.  And the interiors are as luxurious and well-equipped as one can expect a five-star hotel to be.


North Pole Igloos

North Pole


Luxury Arctic Circle Hotels For a Winter Escape 02


The ultimate polar experience has to be staying in an igloo on the North Pole. Regarded as the northernmost hotel in the world, the igloos are actually mobile heated pods entirely made of glass (that is extreme-weather-resistant of course). With its entire glass structure, guests will be able to sleep under the Northern lights.


The Arctic Hideway

The views in this area are as breath-taking as you might expect and Northern lights are also a possibility.
