Have you ever had Instagram wanderlust? One minute you’re scrolling through your feed, the next you’ve discovered the most amazaing travel destination. All you can think is: I want to go there! Where is it?!
I had a serious case of Instagram wanderlust last week, after stumbling across this image…
I decided to do some investigating, because surely, I couldn’t be the only person who wanted to be transported to this heavenly winter wonderland, right?
Turns out, these cabin pods are nestled inside the Arctic Circle in Finland’s northernmost region, Lapland.
Lapland is known for its vast wilderness, roaming reindeer (yes, real life reindeer!), ski resorts, and natural phenomena including the midnight sun and the Northern Lights, making it a travel hot spot. Unsurprisingly, these rustic cabin pods are another major drawcard.
So, if you’re in the mood for a winter vacay, then look no further. Here’s where you should stay.
1. Artic TreeHouse Hotel
Located on the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi, these luxe tree houses not only offer panoramic views, but they also boast all the luxe amenities a traveller might want—flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, espresso coffee machine, and more. Naturally, the rooms are designed to be cosy, with Scandinavian design elements littered throughout.
2. Kemi Seaside Glass Villas
Kemi Seaside Glass Villas hasn’t even opened yet, and they’ve already garned quite a lot of attention. But, we can totally see why. There are 20 villas in total, each with their own kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Stay in and enjoy the spectacular views from the warmth and comfort of your bed, or go and out explore all that Finland has to offer.
3. Glass Igloos On The Artic Circle
Swap the hustle and bustle of a ski resort for these brand spanking new glass-roofed, arctic view rooms by Santa’s Hotel. They offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Lapland’s ever-changing nature, and a funky interior to boot.
