Room with a Winter View: Kelo-Glass Igloos, Finland

If you thought Lapland was just for kids, how very wrong you are. The beauty of the wild outdoors in a snow-covered landscape has to be an enchanting sight for all. So why not bask in it in complete warmth and luxury inside your own glass igloo? These futuristic-looking glass domes that seem to emerge from the ground are ideal for stargazing. Better still, be one of the first people to stay in their brand new Kelo-Glass Igloos which combine cosy, traditional log cabins with the out-of-this-world views of their glass pods. You’ll have complete privacy, and with an authentic log-burning fireplace and sauna within striking distance, you won’t ever want to leave.
