A SPICE OF ROMANCE There are various accommodation options in Lapland but the next two our are favorite when speaking about romance. A wooden cabin in the heart of the arctic forest invites to you snuggle up and enjoy the wintery feel. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, giving you the chance to fully let go. The Glass igloos are a unique experience, offering luxurious accommodation with stunning views to the frosty outdoors and if lucky, a chance to be woken up in the middle of the night to catch the Northern Lights. No need to get out of bed to admire the show - a glass of wine or hot chocolate in hand, comfortably in your loved ones arms and the lights dancing right above you. Add the steam of the sauna or even a hot tub to either option for a chance to glance at the starry sky as you seal the day in the most romantic way.
The beauty of Lapland lies in its vast white landscapes, the solitude and the possibility to catch one of nature's most magical phenomena. The breathtaking views, the sounds of your surroundings and pure silence invite you in and allow your mind to naturally find ease. It creates a space where you and your loved one can spend much needed time together away from the hassle of everyday life. Away from crowded places you have the space to connect to one another. The beauty is often in the simple moments, like when you're sipping hot chocolate on a log while hoping to see the Northern lights or having a candlelit dinner in a cozy cottage facing the frozen lake - in Lapland, nature itself is enough to bring the romance to your holiday.
