AuroraHut Glass Igloo boat - Unique igloo accommodation

Regular glass igloos were originally designed for experiencing nature phenomenon such as the Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) and midnight sun through their large scenic windows. But what if a certain nature phenomenon can only be seen in a particular location at a specific time?

Fully movable Northern lights hut

All our 10 mobile Northern lights huts are located on the shores of Lake Ranua. This makes it possible to move the glass igloos wherever you want, whenever you want. During summer, AuroraHut can be moved with a boat or with it’s own engine and during winter you can pull the igloo with a snow mobile or ATV.  

The most beautiful parts of virtually untouched nature and nature phenomenon such as the Northern lights and midnight sun are just a short ride away and the best thing is that your accommodation always moves with you.

Only the sky is a limit for your fully mobile glass igloos.

Green and sustainable travel option

AuroraHut igloo combines an ecological and luxury accommodation in a tight 12 square meter package. Since this is a fully mobile accommodation, there is no need to build new permanent accommodation to get to certain locations which of course is excellent thing for the nature. 

In the eyes of Finnish law, our igloos are considered as boats, which means that they can freely be taken to any location with sole land owner’s permission.

The igloo also produces its own electricity through solar panels during spring and summer season.

Year-round igloo accommodation experience

Normal, stationary glass igloos are often thought of primarily as winter-time accommodation options. However, the free-moving and floating AuroraHut glass igloo offers the guest the opportunity for spectacular nature experiences all year round.

Thanks to the freely adjustable temperature (and ventilation), igloos are comfortable to stay in both summer and winter. Because of its free mobility and ability to float, AuroraHut is an ideal partner for both open water and winter holiday adventures in Lapland.

Summer season

Experience the famous summer of Lapland and its phenomenon in a new way.

When summer arrives, the AuroraHut igloo moves easily from place to place on lake Ranua. From your private terrace, it is easy to enjoy the famous summer of Lapland and nature phenomenon such as the midnight sun. 

For safety reasons, the igloos are anchored and attached to our igloo dock during night time. The igloo’s own air conditioning guarantees pleasant indoor temperature also during warm summer nights.

The AuroraHut is also a perfect partner for your summer adventures. With the igloo’s own engine, you are able to take your bicycle, fishing equipment or berry bucket to a desired position and reach the best locations of Ranua for your desired activities. Remember that we also offer our visitors a wide variety of different kinds of summer activities

Autumn season

Enjoy the changes and stunning color scheme of the nature of Lapland.

The darkening autumn evenings provide a great opportunity to admire the colors of autumn and the dance of the Northern lights. As the evening dims, it is wonderful to wrap up in a blanket and enjoy the romantic moments at your very own terrace.

The autumn season most definitely is one of the best times to enjoy the changes of the beautiful nature of Lapland and the darkening nights also offer you an excellent chance for Aurora Borealis hunting. 

The igloos will remain fully movable at the lake until the lake freezes. This makes it possible to drive at the lake with your very own mobile glass igloo.

Winter season

Spend an unforgettable and active winter holiday in Finnish Lapland.

The winter season offers great opportunities to admire the northern lights from the igloo’s large glass windows. Winter activities can also be enjoyed directly from the interior of AuroraHut if desired and the igloo can be even moved around the lake with an ATV by request.

The igloos’ indoor temperature can freely be adjusted from the igloo’s control panel that is located next to the entrance.

The whole winter season is a great time to enjoy the real Lapland experience and the possibility to see the Northern lights is usually good throughout the whole time-frame.

Spring season

Witness the nature of Lapland awakening again and jump on board of an igloo boat.

In spring, you can experience the awakening of nature. Enjoy the spring sun and the sounds of nature on your igloo’s very own terrace. Spring season is also most definitely one of the best times for winter activities such as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and ice fishing that can be done directly through the ice fishing hole of the AuroraHut.

Beginning of April also is a great time for searching the Northern lights as the nights are still dark and the Aurora activity usually reasonable high. 


"We then spent three nights in their Aurora Huts (Igloos) on the frozen lake. The huts are ultra modern and have lots of facilities packed into a small space. A toilet (no shower), two gas cooking rings, a fridge (storage box under the ice), bluetooth speaker, fishing hole, good wifi, efficient and warm heating and chargers for usb."

"The igloo itself is quite compact but had everything we need for our short stay. We especially enjoyed the build in speakers within the igloo that allowed us to add another sensory experience to our stay. Additionally, the opportunity to take the igloo around the lake was an amazing opportunity. We also took a try on one of the many yard games they had available for guests to use. The only minus we had was the small door to enter the igloo as both of us ended up hitting our head to the top of the door frame (though we were actually warned about this as we were shown our igloo)"

"The igloos are excellent, and really different from what we expected, extremely modern with LED lighting, a Bluetooth speaker to connect mobile devices, WiFi....that's right, WiFi, usb sockets for charging, futuristic digital light switches, a console that tells you the temperature, humidity etc and much more."

"Lovely place to stay in Lapland: we spend one night in one of the Igloos, it is amazing to sleep under the stars (and under the aurora if you are lucky) surrounded by an ice lake (in wintertime). The host family is extremely kind; they offered plenty of activities to do at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed Ice fishing, Finnish sauna, snow mobile, and the best: ICE BATH (they made a hole in the middle of the lake so we could have the real Finnish experience!!"

"We stayed 4 nights in the igloo on the frozen and snowy lake, a real moment of happiness. The igloo is very clean and very well appointed, it has a small kitchen, toilet and table. The unobstructed and unobstructed view is a real added value. The sympathy and availability of the entire team is remarkable. A restaurant is at our disposal, the menu is delicious and the breakfast too. You can also enjoy the sauna, sledges. "

"This place is truly unique, for sure in Finland, probably in the world. Feels like an igloo with all the comfort, and with glass to observe the sky. If you’re ever around, don’t even hesitate and take at least one night !!"
