I was Stumbling around the internet the other day (if you don't know about Stumble Upon, how dare you waste your time any other way :)), when I came across this website.
It is definitely a sign.
Here is the Hotel and Igloo Village Kakslauttanen, located in northern Finland in the Lapland region. I mean, legit in the Arctic Circle. Don't know if you can find any travel promos for this hotel, so better save up.
|Wait, Finland is way the heck up there?! :)|
I've already told the hubs that I want to do a winter trip up in the Arctic Circle/Lapland. I know right, what happened to that little Texas girl who thought anything below 80 is 'chilly'?!
Don't you think it would be such an amazing experience to see an actual Winter Wonderland!!
And with this hotel offering all this, who could ask for more:
"In the winter time we offer husky safaris, snowmobile safaris, reindeer safaris and ice-fishing trips as well as guided ski treks. The Saariselkä ski trail network of over 180km passes right by the hotel. You can rent cross country skis from the hotel."
Man, throw in a reindeer sled ride - not even sure if those exist! - and I am sold!!
Oh, and I haven't even shown you the best part. Along with the hotel and cabins, they offer a accommodations in a glass igloo. Yep, glass igloos!
"Glass igloo provides a one of a kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and millions of stars of the crystal clear sky in a comfortable room temperature. Built from a special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays a normal level. It also prevents the glass from not getting white frosted, hence keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds."
Imagine falling asleep with this view!
And from this photo, I am assuming they have wild zebras there in Lapland. I mean, why else would they decorate the rooms with them?! Haha. Beautiful!
Or even better, my absolute dream is to see the Northern Lights. Now I am not sure how much sleep you would get under these bright babies, but wouldn't it be a sight!
Never mind the ridiculous cost, cough $500 cough, this is a once in a lifetime kind of vacation!
We have to take advantage of our location this year.
Um, OK. Sold! Just came across this photo on the website :)
Yes Please!!! Can't you just imagine me on one of these bad boys?! Ohhh yeah, haha.
Tomorrow, another The More You Know Monday. Prepare to be learn-ed. Happy lazy Sunday, bloggyland. I sure am enjoying mine :)
