        A comfortable stay in the magical winter wonderland of Luosto”

        My partner and I stayed 3 nights in Santa’s Hotel Aurora, where we arranged for 1 night in the beautiful glass igloo and 2 subsequent nights in a standard double room. The glass igloo looked exactly like it was advertised. Appreciated the nifty heating switch inside the igloo which melted the snow on the top of the igloo so that we could have clear views of the night sky. The standard double room was a lot more spacious than the igloo and came with a private sauna in the room, which we really appreciated. Such a nice & warm relief in winter (also good for drying clothes)! Food wise, we ate most of our meals in the hotel restaurant as Luosto is quite a remote location and there are limited options unless you drive. Breakfast buffet spread was tasty though limited (again, quite understandable since it is not a big hotel).

        We stayed four nights and there was pretty much nothing to do.We spend our time exploring the area and it was quite easy to pass the days there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was not too bad but the restaurant choice was very limited.

        あえてツアーを組まず、本当に素敵な宿を自ら探したいと思っていたときに見つけたのがサンタズホテルオーロラでした。こじんまりと素朴な雰囲気もある中に、北欧の魅力をギュッと詰め込んだ素敵な空間でした。結婚後も、子どもが生まれた後も、何十年後もまた訪れたい場所になりました。
