The bedroom is held up by a tree trunk in the middle of the suite. With a glass ceiling and a double bed, the Northern Lights won’t be viewed anywhere as exquisite as this. The suite also features a jacuzzi, a luxury bathroom and a private sauna.

Levi Igloos and Northern Lights House. The 12 igloos with glass ceilings are situated on Utsuvaara fell, 10 kilometres from ski and holiday resort Levi in Kittilä.
