When it comes to winter you've got basically two options: You can either 1) go buy the world's greatest onsie, curl up next to a heating vent, and not leave your apartment for the next three months, or 2) leave your apartment, embrace the cold, and spend a weekend in the coolest winter abode on planet earth.

We're, of course, talking about Kakslauttanen (pronounced "Herd-Gurdity-Derpy-Derp"), a snow-asis in Finland located 155 miles north of the Arctic Circle, with 20 glass igloos positioned underneath THIS eight months of the year:

Igloos start at around $600ish a night, are available August to April (aurora borealis season woooot), and come with thermal glass walls and floors so you can be nice and toasty while you take in the titular tundra.

4) Reindeer safaris

5) Snow tank safaris

6) SNOW TANK SAFARIS

7) SNOW
