Aurora glamping under the Northern Lights

Aurora glamping has arrived in Northern Europe with the launch of new Aurora Domes in Finnish Lapland.

Set on the edge of Lake Torassieppi, the completely insulated, igloo-shaped tents have one transparent wall and face northwards for prime views of the unpolluted skies.

Stylishly decorated with a husky or reindeer theme, there is a double bed, space for two extra beds, and a wood burning stove.

Guests can retire to their Dome after dinner in the restaurant, 100 metres away in the Torassieppi Winter Village, and rejoin fellow travellers for breakfast the next morning. Loo, shower and sauna facilities are located 50 metres from the Domes.

This extraordinary choice of accommodation costs from £115 pppn, and can be tailored into The Aurora Zone itineraries in Torassieppi, Harriniva or Jeris.

Sample trip: The magical seven-night Lakeside Auroras costs from £1,815 pp (two sharing) including return flights (London), transfers, accommodation (Dome supplement applies), half-board and six lunches, Aurora photography workshop, Aurora campfire, 17-km husky safari, Northern Lights minibus hunt, reindeer farm visit and sleigh ride, snowshoe hike, spa, smoke sauna, and delicious locally-sourced food.
