Ice and light village
Unique accommodation by the Kalix river in northern Sweden. Read the Swedish blog post
The Igloo glows warmy in the cold winter nightfall.
Ice and light village igloos are placed just by the mighty Kalix river. Perfect for winter activities in the frozen archipelago or just taking a walk on the ice.
Inside I have all the comfort I need.
When the outer shell has warmed up and cleared all the ice I have a great sight of the night sky from this beautiful room.
The outer igloo shell is warming up in my igloo so when the night comes I can see the stars and hopefully the northern lights.
I did not get so lucky to have northern light in my visit but if the sky was blessed by the magic light it would have looked like this. Creative retouching in collaboration with Style of Norrland (Swedish).
