For Those Travelers Who REALLY Enjoy Winter -- Finnish Igloos For Rent On Airbnb

For those who participate in the world of outdoor sports in the winter, there are more than a few options of places to stay no matter which part of the world one visits. For skiers/riders specifically, there are more than a few stories from sleeping in the van to be the first in the parking lot when ticket windows open, to bunking on a buddy's couch, and even high-end luxury accommodations fit for royalty. It's hard to say where this Airbnb listing sits on the scale, but it's wicked cool in more ways than one.

A straight-up, real snow igloo can be yours for the night for just shy of $130 if you happen to be traveling to Finland. Is that too much to charge for an outside hut made of snow? That all depends on each person's thoughts on the amenities.

First, these igloos are built by the hosts each year, not far from Lake Pyhäjärvi and the Pyhä-Luosto National Park. This means there is potential for more than enough outdoor winter activities to keep busy. Oh, there is also tell of a ski resort not much more than 10km away.

The igloos themselves can hold up to 4 guests each and have real beds inside. The host describes the space as "Nice atmosphere with led lights and white walls. Outside the igloo is possibility to see northern lights if you are lucky." This also includes a warm sleeping bag on each of the beds.

But, would that be enough if one just couldn't continue to brave the cold? Well, the hosts have that figured out as well. On the grounds is a warm apartment that is available 24 hours, in case guests can't quite hack it. The warm apartment includes toilets, shower, living room, and a small kitchen and is free for all guests to use.

If you're looking to take a winter trip that is on another level, this might be a location worth looking into. You'll definitely see some snow and maybe even the northern lights. Either way, it's so unique that you'll have a story to tell your friends for years to come.
