Have you ever slept in the open, just pick up a sleeping bag and fell asleep with one eye looking at the billions of stars in the night sky? And woke up from that colorful light from the aurora borealis fills your entire room? I found one of the most romantic places in Lapland, where you can fill up with a loved one under a sky filled with billions of stars in the comfort of a 4 * hotel. And the view from this hotel – at least a million dollars.

Complex Golden Crown Levin laplandiat – a modern analogue of the traditional huts reindeer herder, simply put, glass needle, which are located at an altitude of 340 meters in the area Utsuvaary, 10 kilometers from the ski resort of Levi.
Romantic Break in Glass Igloo in Lapland:
The place is not cheap, and it is designed more for the premium segment, as the price of one night in this complex starts from 300 euros, and the price tag for the best needle starts from 500 euros.Yes, this is not an option when you need to find a hotel cheaper and closer to the center. This is a unique offer for which will have to pay their hard earned denyuzhku, but trust me – it’s worth it.
The complex is located just 9 km from the ski resort of Levi. If you want immediately after the aircraft will go to this hotel, the road will not take much time – 20 minutes by taxi from the nearest airport in Kittilä.
Throughout the snow and unreal beautiful views of the fabulous nature of Lapland. The complex consists of a dozen glass igloos – 4 premium version and 8 superior, plus there is a small villa in the rock. Premium only differs from the Superiors views rather precedence location on the slope, because of all the needle opens chumachechy look. Premium needle positioned in the front row at the top of a hill, in the best location, offering breathtaking, no fencing views of the surrounding wildlife.
All of the needle are made so that large glass will not fog up, and even if all of a sudden going to snow or frost forms, then turn on smart automation and in a few minutes all the windows will be clean again and nothing will stop to admire the stars and the northern lights and of course Yeti.
In each glass house has its own kitchenette, shower, toilet and, of course, a big bed with electronic control =;) About utensils, kettle and microwave, I will not tell, but I will say that the only thing you do not have to all drag along, exactly like a hairdryer and a CD player.
All guests of the complex can be taken away in a large tent and grill barbecue-party. There is so much snow that dig into it after the hot tubs in the open air (and it is) will be a pleasure.
Special sloths can order a breakfast in bed =) price in the region of 57 euros for two. In the complex there is another villa for 4-6 people. There are panoramic living room with fireplace, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 3 toilets, a cozy fireplace, sauna, equipped with a fridge and a bathroom. On the terrace, which offers great views of the surrounding countryside, a jacuzzi for 6 people, equipped with hot water.
Double “Golden” bedroom (for aesthetes rather rococo style) and decorated in Lapland-style bedroom “Lesosplavschika” (and here is a very nice and cozy) equipped with double beds and a separate toilet. Through a transparent curved ceiling, you can admire the stars and the northern lights. Sofas in the living room and fireplace room can serve as extra beds for 2 persons.
The need to come here for peace and solitude. There are no specifically the Internet, so you can fully enjoy the sights and atmosphere of Lapland. This place will be interesting in the first place, and the bride and groom in love, I think. You can wrap myself up in a warm blanket, pour hot mulled wine and watch the shooting stars, of which there are countless or “drown” in the magic and charm of the Northern Lights.
Even the evening types are stunning and make forget about everything.
If you listen, you can hear the snow fall with snow-covered fir trees, as somewhere runs hare and if you’re lucky – to hear the song of the yeti =)
Someone spend crazy money on wedding photo shoot in the Maldives or the Seychelles, but here only 2 hour flight from St. Petersburg there is a real fairy tale. Though I do not shoot weddings and all sorts of Mishnah-mi-love story, but even here I wanted to shoot something dreamlike and unreal beautiful.
We would like to spend the night in a hotel?
