Skeena Heliskiing Base Camp in Canada
Ever tried heli-skiing? Some call it ”the best drug they have ever taken.” No, you don’t jump out of a helicopter. A helicopter only takes you to a maximally secluded place in the mountains. There, you are safely located in a special lodge, from where you go skiing with a group of badass adventurers like yourself. Each day culminates in a geodesic dome where the skiers meet for the food and stay for the fun. At least that’s how things are in Skeena Heliskiing base camp!
Geodesic dome is almost 80m2 big and serves as a central communal space with bar and dining area where guests socialize, eat, drink and exchange experience. The base camp is limited to 10 people per week and the season lasts only 6 weeks, so no one comes up here by accident.
Harriniva Hotels & Safaris in Finland
It’s early evening in Muonio, Finland. At Harriniva Hotels & Safaris, a couple is stargazing and watching the green spectacle of northern lights through a huge panoramic window. Earlier that day, they have been to a reindeer farm and a museum. Just before dog sledding and snowmobiling, all of it perfect. Then they went for a bite at a local restaurant serving reindeer meat, local fish, berries and mushrooms. Around dusk, she went for a sauna while he embarked on his first ice fishing.
And now they have a whole night ahead. Relaxing, making pictures and watching the aurora borealis across the frozen lake. Or simply – glamping inside the insulated Aurora Dome. Dubbed ”the first official glamping destination in Finland and Northern Scandinavia,” this igloo shaped hotel room is nothing but wonderous. If they came here in the Summer, the amazing midnight sun via the front window would sweep them off their feet!
