Finnish hotel offers warm view of arctic lights from geo-domes

Bahamas? Lame. Hawaii? The epitome of cliche. Paris? Too many French. If you’re looking for a truly unique and romantic travel destination this winter, you could do far worse than making your way, with a loved one , up to the Igloo Village of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland. Located near Finland’s Urho Kekkonen National Park, the igloo village offers up one of the most spectacular views of the Aurora Borealis.

The Hotel Kakslauttanen consists of 20 glass igloos that are outfitted with thermal glass walls and ceilings, giving visitors the chance to gaze up at the spectacular view of the Aurora Borealis without having to leave the warmth of their thermal domes. The igloos can accommodate two people and repel frost, allowing you a great view even when the temperature drops to -22 degrees Fahrenheit outside. 

For those looking for even more accommodations, the hotel also features a restaurant, an ice bar, the world’s largest smoke sauna, and a fresh snow chapel built every winter. And if you’re looking for a more traditional experience, there are even igloos made of ice that you can take up lodging in.

Get a Marvel or Disney Echo Pop for kids today for only $23
Disney and Marvel Echo Pop Kids prime day deal

Like its adult-focused counterpart, the Eco Pop Kids is an Alexa-driven smart speaker with a twist. It features kid-friendly experiences, like streaming child-appropriate music, reading back audiobooks, and daily activities -- such as setting timers or alarms. As part of its Prime Day deals, in this case, exclusive to Prime members, Amazon has heavily discounted the Echo Pop Kids speaker in two versions: Disney and Marvel. That's right, today you can grab the Marvel Echo Pop Kids or Disney Echo Pop Kids for $23 -- that's $27 off. There are quite a few Prime Day Echo deals still live, but this one takes the cake.

The Marvel and Disney Echo Pop Kids are designed for, well, kids
Sure, kids can have a lot of fun with Alexa and one of the regular Echo speakers, but there's a lot those devices can do that you might not want your kids to have access to. Besides the unfettered access to explicit music, they could potentially order things from Amazon, interact with your smart home gear -- that you have set just right -- or just start up the speaker when you least want it active.
