IGLOO VILLAGE OF HOTEL KAKSLAUTTANEN, FINLAND

While staying in a glass igloo doesn’t sound super warm, you’ll be plenty toasty at the Igloo Village of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland. Their small design allows them be heated efficiently, and the glass ceiling gives a great opportunity to view the Aurora Borealis.

MOUNTAIN HILL CABIN, NORWAY

A skier’s fantasy – the Mountain Hill Cabin is a private cabin designed so you can ski right down the roof. Created to fit in with the surrounding landscape, the cabin is protected from the weather and lets snow and wind slip right over it. Accessible by skis, this winter retreat will give you plenty of time to play, rest and drink hot cocoa.

SKIPARK 360, NORWAY

Although it hasn’t been built yet, Skipark 360 will serve as a man-made ski hill outside of Stockholm. Designed by C.F. Møller, the entire resort will be powered by geothermal, solar, wind and hydropower, and when it is completed, it could be the greenest ski resort in the world.

TREEHOTEL, SWEDEN

The amazing Treehotel is open year round and takes advantage of the beautiful Swedish landscape — regardless of whether there’s snow on the ground. Enjoy one of their stunning prefab rooms like the Birdsnest, Mirror Cube or the oddly-named Blue Cone (pictured here). Eco-friendly building strategies are combined with low-impact design and miles and miles of wilderness to play in.

    How is the Igloo Village of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland ecological? Wasting huge amounts of energy through pointlessly large glass roof.

    Also the skipark 360 can never be considered ecological, since just the construction of that monster will produce tons and tons of CO2.

    Not everything that’s a bit different is ecological, even if it was built in a forest. Interesting article, though!
