While Finland may be great for scenic camping and getting back to nature, the isolation and lack of amenities aren’t to everyone’s taste. However, the glamping movement is also increasing in popularity in Finland, offering spellbinding accommodations in one of the most remote and beautiful locations in the world. Sound more like your thing? These are the most luxurious glamping spots in Finland, all of them bookable with Culture Trip.

Revontuli Resort Glass Igloos

Reclining on your bed’s thick furry blanket and gazing up at the night sky – there’s really nothing quite like it. From your glass igloo at Revontuli Resort, you’re particularly well positioned for winter sightings of the Northern Lights. Summer brings especially pretty views over the lake, which by night is eerily illuminated by the midnight sun (don’t worry, eye masks are included). For the whole package, treat yourself to a lakeside sauna and outdoor hot tub.

For a feeling of complete seclusion surrounded by some of the most picturesque scenery in Finland, this forest-immersed complex neighbours Pyhä-Luosto, one of the top national parks in the country. There’s a wide range of accommodation options, from cosy log cabins to huts with floor-to-ceiling windows, where you can take in everything from the Arctic sky to the surrounding forest. Public log saunas are nearby, while braver sorts can test their mettle with ice swimming in a natural pool.

This wonderfully snug traditional log cabin is located in the far north of Finland, in the enchanting wilderness of the Lapland region. The two-bedroom chalet sleeps up to six adults and provides everything for a fabulous stay – from a modern kitchen to a cosy lounge with wood-burning stove. The surrounding landscape is perfect for cross-country skiing or summer hiking, plus guests have private use of an outdoor swimming pool. Had one too many schnapps? When you’re ready to sweat it out, fire up the in-house sauna.

Villa Iglu

Lakeside isolation is guaranteed at this small pine-built complex deep in the Alakitka woods. Lodging ranges from simple bunk bed dorms to glass-panelled pods with lovely views of the lake and the starry night sky. There are two outside hot tubs, one modern and the other barrel-style – particularly fun for small groups – as well as a traditional sauna indoors. A hearty breakfast and dinner is laid on for guests, with a typical smorgasbord of Finnish-style cooking.

Staying lakeside is one thing, but spending the night on the lake? With Lake Inari Mobile Cabins, basecamp is near Inari village, where you can join in activities, turn up the heat in the sauna and dine by an open fire. But by night, your cabin – with you in it – is towed by snowmobile onto the frozen lake. Heated glass-ceiling pods are ideal for viewing the aurora, and the setting is truly magical.

Apukka Resort

Located on the edge of Lappish wilderness, overlooking Olkkajärvi Lake, the setting of Apukka Resort scores highly on knockout natural beauty. The resort offers an impressive choice of accommodation, the most popular being their swishly modern glass-roofed igloos, great for stargazing. Stylish apartments and cabins are available, too. But for something different, spend the night in an ice cabin, where even the beds are made of ice, but reindeer hides and thermal sleeping bags keep you toasty.

If you don’t want to be too far from civilization, but still want the back-to-nature experience, FinnDome has what you’re looking for. While just a 10-minute drive from the city of Pori, you’ll still feel completely immersed in the middle of a pine forest, steps away from a sandy lakeside beach. Even more special is the dome tent accommodation here – almost completely transparent globes where you can sink into soft beds and gaze out over the forest and sky.

    Eastern Finland is popular for camping and boating holidays. It’s highly attractive, offers a lot of activities and is peacefully remote. While there are many regular camping sites, there are also some glamping sites, such as the eco-cabins offered by Rock & Lake. They are designed to look like traditional wooden lakeside cabins, but are equipped with electricity, fireplaces, drinking water and bio-toilets. In addition, they include a private yard, beach, wood-burning saunas and a rowboat, and some cabins have free wifi.

    These tree huts in southern Finland are built directly into the surrounding forest village and are rustic but highly comfortable, even in winter, thanks to heat insulation built into the floor. Not only is the location tranquil, but there are also many nature and cultural activities available nearby, close connections to Helsinki and Turku, and a traditional smoke sauna.

    Nellim Wilderness Lodge

    4.6/5 (26 Reviews)

    The owners of this lodge have transformed the former primary school building into the ultimate getaway for aurora hunters. The ecolodge has limited electricity and running water, but essentially recreates the camping experience indoors. You can step right out into the beautiful Lapland scenery, and there is a traditional sauna. The Wilderness Lodge has electricity and water, as well as a restaurant and pine-wood bar that was hand-carved by the owner. Just outside are kick sleds, toboggans and skis for free use, and there is also a husky kennel.

    This is one of the most famous resorts in Lapland, known for its igloo-shaped glass domes. Log cabins and luxury suites are also available (notable for including a bathtub, which is surprisingly hard to find in Finland). The wedding chamber is built from logs and creates a cosy and romantic honeymoon destination. The rooms offer clear views of the aurora and night sky, while the resort also has husky sledging, reindeer sleigh rides, gold digging, skiing and snowmobiles.
