AuroraHut Glass Igloo boat - Unique accommodation experience in Ranua

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

Jump aboard a mobile igloo boat and experience the year-round natural phenomena of Lapland’s nature closer than ever before. During summer, AuroraHut uses its own electric engine to move around lake Ranua and in winter, the igloos can be pulled with an ATV, for example.

Only the sky is the limit for your mobile glass igloo.

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.

Customer testimonials

"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)"

"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. "
