What's the one thing that most bucket lists have in common? Well, it's about how they all want to go see the northern lights.

So, if you're looking for an idea for your next holiday, then you probably need to head to Finland so you can take in this mesmerizing sight.
According to My Modern Met, situated on the shores of Lake Ranuanjärvi, deep within the snow-covered woodlands of Finnish Lapland, you will find the luxury Arctic Fox Igloos. The glass, dome-like structures let you stay overnight with unobstructed views of the surrounding environment, which is very peaceful. Perfect for when you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Also, you're likely to witness the Northern Lights.
Every igloo structure comes fully loaded with features like a bedroom for two, a kitchenette, a bathroom, and even a private sauna. Despite the freezing outdoor temperatures, the heated glass walls at the front act as insulation, preventing frost and snow from lingering on the pod’s surface. To provide privacy, the timber box on the back, forest-facing side of the cabin houses the bathroom and sauna.
Well, you're not always going to be gazing at the Northern Lights, so when you're not, there are a lot of other things you can do as well. The property managers also offer a range of outdoor activities to enjoy. Their arctic safaris provide guests with the chance to explore the wilderness on snowmobiles, huskies, or reindeer. During the warmer months, you can canoe across the lake just outside your front door, or take a cycling tour of the Ranua forests where you might even bump into one of the local arctic foxes!
The official website says: According to an old Finnish folktale, Northern Lights are born as the arctic fox swipes the side of a fell with its tail, thus creating sparks on the northern skies. The Arctic Fox Igloos in Ranua, in the Finnish Lapland, is named in the honor of the animal arctic fox; the Igloos offer ideal conditions for observing and admiring the northern skies and its phenomena. You may also combine an overnight stay in a Glass-Igloo with an extended holiday, for example with a stay at the Holiday Village Gulo Gulo.
