Hotel Kakslauttanen
Saariselkä, Finland

For those brave enough to holiday inside the Arctic Circle, Kakslauttanen is like the Disney World of backwoods Finland: It has the world's largest smoke sauna, a snow chapel, an ice bar, and a traditional birch-lined honeymoon suite with an illuminated Versace bathroom. But the best bet is a stay in an individual 194-square-foot heated glass igloo, inside which you can simply lie and watch the northern lights flicker in the distance—provided you don't feel like taking snow-sculpting classes or learning how to pan for gold.
