OPTION 1: CRYSTAL LAVVO
Sleeping in a Crystal Lavvo is a fantastic and adventurous way to spend the night. This ‘glamping’ experience provides you with the excitement of camping, but with added comfort. The lavvos are located in the forest behind Green Gold Villa and insulated bathrooms with hot water are only a few metres away. The lavvos are wooden constructions but have a glass roof, so that each night you can lie back and admire the Arctic sky and, hopefully, the Aurora. Each lavvo has a double bed or two single beds and a wooden stove, which you will be taught how to use, to ensure that you are warm and comfortable during your stay.
OPTION 2: DOUBLE ROOM IN THE VILLA
Each room in the villa offers a king-sized bed and a wardrobe for clothing storage. Hot drinks and kitchen facilities are all provided in the shared kitchen of the villa. Hairdryers are provided in each bedroom. Two bathrooms are shared between four rooms.
