Levi Glass Igloos
The glass-ceilinged 'Levin Iglut' igloos, also known as the Golden Crown Levi Igloos, rest on the fell slope, at an altitude of about 340 m. They offer guests a chance to stay on the edge of the wilderness with a view of the rugged fell landscape and the northern sky. We offer several different options for staying at the Levi Glass Igloos as well as customised tours.
An hour's flight from Helsinki, Levi can be reached from Kittilä airport, a 15-minute drive away. Levin Iglut is located in Finnish Lapland, to the north of the Arctic Circle. Here, the winter lasts for half the year and you can often see the Northern Lights on clear nights. Guests are surrounded by the arctic nature, yet inside the glass igloo it is always warm and all amenities are within reach. Even though the centre of Levi and its services are only 10 km away, it is peaceful and quiet at Levin Iglut.
You can travel to Levi from other cities of Northern Finland and Northern Norway with private transfers or local buses. These transfers allow you to add more Lapland highlights with your stay in a glass igloo, such as a Kirkenes King Crab Safari, a Hurtigruten North Cape voyage, a stay in an iceroom at the Snowhotel, a visit to Santa's hometown Rovaniemi and a float in sea ice in Kemi.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT LEVI GLASS IGLOOS:
There are three different types of igloos to choose from; Superior Glass Igloos (15 igloos), Prime Glass Igloos (9 igloos) and new in 2019/2020, Suite Igloos (3 igloos). The main difference between the two igloo standards, Prime Superior and Superior is the location. Several of the Prime igloos are located on the side of the mountain with a view of the valley and the northern sky. Additional prime amenities include a specialty coffee maker and a bathrobe and slippers PLUS a welcome drink is included in the price.
Suite Igloos have jacuzzi outside and sofa bed possibilities for children. 210cm beds and a kitchen where private dinners are possible.
Amenities in all igloo types:
Small kitchen including
- microwave oven
- mini van
- electric kettle
- Double bed, motorized beds that can be separated from each other.
HANDY HINTS FOR YOUR STAY:
- You are staying in a glass igloo so you may want to bring eye masks to help sleeping once the sun rises.
- When you shower, the windows of the igloo can fog up. If the Northern Lights are imminent, don't shower! Plus the igloos don't have a lot of hot water so just take care with how long you are planning to be in the shower.
- Book dinner if you haven't already arranged it and double check on arrival. Request upstairs if possible.
- Expect that you will probably need to carry your luggage to your igloo - it is not typical for there to be a luggage service in Finland. There is usually a sled that can be arranged if you need it. For a small fee, this service can be arranged.
- Reception has limited hours so on arrival, just double check that everything is organised as per your expectations. Double check what time the reception is open until.
- Download an Aurora App which will let you know when the aurora shows, fingers crossed!
RESTAURANT AT THE LEVI GLASS IGLOOS:
A wonderful addition to a stay at the Levi Glass Igloos is the Restaurant Aurora Sky. You can enjoy Scandinavian flavours in two different atmospheres. On the upper floor, your dinner is seasoned with an unobstructed view of the sky, while on the ground floor, you can enjoy your meal in the warm glow of the fireplace.
NOTE: This restaurant is only open in the Aurora Season. The restaurant can hold up to 80 diners. Aurora Sky attracts customers from the entire Levi area, so we recommend you reserve a table for dinner.
