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.


Each AuroraHut igloo is equipped with a wide variety of luxury amenities. A comfortable double bed ensures you a good nights sleep, a private kitchenette allows you to cook and prepare coffee and tea inside the igloo. You can even catch your own food through the ice fishing hole that is located next to your bed or from your own terrace during the summer season.

You can also charge your mobile devices and laptops through the igloo’s USB-ports and use your igloo’s personal WiFi for surfing.

Autumn season

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.

Spring season

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.

Winter season

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.
