I Stayed In A Glass Igloo In The Arctic Circle

  • Опубліковано 22 вер 2023
  • HELLO FRIENDS!! Welcome to the final installment of our Nordic/Scandinavian trip - the Glass Igloos in Finland! So far on our trip, we have taken a communal hot bath at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, nearly cryogenically frozen ourselves at the ICEHOTEL in Sweden, and now we're on to Arctic Finland to stay in a glass igloo under the northern lights!
    For years, I've been seeing the glass igloos in Finland on my instagram, tiktok - *and UAclips shorts* feeds - and I've always wanted to try them out. I've never seen the northern lights before, and I've also never stayed in a human-sized terrarium before, but I've always been intrigued by those see-through bubble tents - so we decided to go and try one out and see if we freeze our butts off! And while at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, home of the glass igloos, we also tried a bunch of arctic activities - like snowmobiling, reindeer sleigh rides, dog sledding, and traditional Finnish sauna-ing and ice bathing!!
    What do you think?? Would you stay in a glass igloo?

    melissa saying “saf i might throw up” and saf immediately going “OK, excuse me can we stop?!” was so comforting for some reason, ik it’s the right thing to do but many ppl would go “really? just hold up a little” or be annoyed 😅

      As someone with emetophobia, I thought the same thing. It’s already anxiety wrenching enough for us to let someone know we’re gonna get sick so when someone have that type of calm response it makes things that much better. I thought it was sweet too🥹

      Jamie Lynn 3 місяці тому +86

      Kind of related but when Saf and Tyler were streaming and Tyler accidentally wore a shirt that was offensive without knowing, the minute people in the chat started saying it was offensive, he was like “oh I’m sorry, I’m gonna go change really quick” and Saf was like “yeah, go change. We’re really sorry about that guys.” She seems like a very understanding person and is always looking out for the best interests of her employees and fans

      ​@Ali D. Katt I always wondered. I see a lot american youtubers/streamers etc just letting their dog into their garden to do their buisness or go on a little 20 min walk. For most dogs thats waaay to less. Every Dog, even the smallest, needs Brain, Nose and Body activity in their daily life. Some need more running, some more nose work etc. depending on race and age. And of course also their time to rest, sleep. Over here we have specific rules for our dogs, seeing all those "funny" videos of dogs ripping apart trash, furniture... mostly from america, just shows something wents very wrong there ^^

    As your Finnish subscriber, it makes me so happy that you actually came and visited Finland. I’ve followed your journey since you’ve been in ladylike in buzzfeed. I started following you when I was around 14-15 and now I’m 24 and I’m still following your journey. I wish I could have given you and Tyler some other Finland advice, but I hope you guys had a good flight back home even though you were sick. Fun fact my mom works in Finnair so it’s possible you could have been in the same flight as her ❤️ Much love to you and Tyler.

This is a very respectful and beautiful vlog as always!

    As a Finn I am just so apologetic for them not even taking a snowmobile ride to your cabin with your luggage and for that price point the zebra print is unforgivable. Also sad you caught a stomach flu :( dis you taste reindeer? They’re ofc cuter alive :-D THE PUPPIES, my friend used to work there as a sleigh dogs’ assistant.

      I once crossed into Czechia by accident on a scavenger hunt, because the girl who was holding the map confused the border with a big road… the camp guide asked as not to talk about it at camp, not because it was or something illegal but because it was unplanned and she didn’t want to get into trouble… 😅

    From someone who's been working in the region, wouldn't be surprised if the bug came from Kakslauttanen. Standards there aren't as lux as it seems. The owner got fined a few years ago for improper waste disposal. I'm happy that you mentioned that there are other Glass Igloo hotels. Would love to see you back in Finnish Lapland again, not necessarily for a video

    Still, as a Dutch person, it is hilarious to see you guys being so weirded out by there not being any border hassle in Europe. My country literally has a town that just has pieces of Belgium inside of it. Also, there is the "drielandenpunt", and there is just a rock you can walk around and you cross the borders to and from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. I also remember the first time I went to America and had to cross the border into Canada being astonished by the hassle.
    Edit: I see similar comments now, sorry

    I'm really happy you included Finland in your Scandinavian visit because I have seen way too many people ignore us. People seem to think our country is not that cool or interesting but it honestly is very much like Sweden. I also love the pronunciation of Finnish things, always fun to hear how someone from somewhere else says them.
    Also fun fact: Finland invented the Sauna over 2000 years ago and every single house has one, all apartment buildings also have a sauna to reserve if you don't have one in your apartment. Smoke saunas are the best! A cool swim in the lake right after sauna is the fricking best and there's no other feeling in this world that could beat that for me. Can't wait for mid summer.

      My father’s partner is Finnish and when they were looking for a house to buy (in Belgium), a room that could be made into a sauna was a priority. 🙂 I also like to use it every now and then.

    I'm so happy you were brave and did whole 2 rounds of sauna and lake!! I promise it's not just for hazing haha, the endorphines you get after going back to sauna from cold are out of this world! Plus the whole excitement and giggles of braving the cold together. The easier version is in the summer, you still get the same effect of temperature change. And you can take it a bit slower, go 10 times back and forth, drink some beer, and enjoy the sunny evening

      As a kid me and my sisters would jump into the hot tub, then the pool, back and forth really fast. It was so fun lol. My mom said it was dangerous and can cause heart problems? So we were forced to stop. Wonder where she got that dumb misinformation

    • MissCaraMint
      MissCaraMint 3 місяці тому +13

      @sabrina It isn’t misinformation. Cold water shock is a real thing, that can lead to heart attacks.
      “"That cold shock can be dangerous," said Dr. Jorge Plutzky, director of preventive cardiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. "Whether there are health benefits or not is not clear and has not been established."
      Plunging the body into cold water triggers a sudden, rapid increase in breathing, heart rate and blood pressure known as the cold shock response. That can cause a person to drown within seconds if they involuntarily gasp while their head is submerged. The shock also places stress on the heart and makes it work harder.“
      -American Heart Association
      Don’t do this alone. If you have no heart problems then you’re probably fine, but you don’t want to find out that you have an undiagnosed underlying condition when there is no one there to help you.

    • ii
      ii 3 місяці тому +12

      @MissCaraMint You're not supposed to submerge your head when you do this or jump like cannonball. You ascend steady and slow while holding onto a ladder. Also this is a whole culture and tradition in Finland that so many people have done forever. No you are not supposed to do it if you have heart problems, but you're also not supposed to watch scary movies or go to a roller coaster and nobodys going around telling those things are deadly for avarage people. And also I don't think those kids were going to get cold shock for jumping into a pool in summer

    • ii
      ii 3 місяці тому +8

      @MissCaraMint what also causes increase in breathing, heart rate and stresses the heart: exercise. That doesn't mean exercise is bad for the heart. It depends on your overall health

    I'm so glad to see you guys had fun here in Finland! 😄Such a shame you all got a stomach bug so close to the end of your trip 😣(If it wasn't a food poisoning it might have been Norovirus!)
    If you want to visit here again you definitely should visit the capital of Finland, Helsinki. It would be a totally different/opposite experience from the Igloos and reindeers and you could visit the museums, cafes, bars and try Flamingo Spa and listen some music underwater 👀 You can also visit The Moomins in Muumimaailma (Moomin land) and Moomin museum.
    I also think the summer time would be more comfortable for you to visit here if you don't want to freeze your butts off again! 😂😂 (Even though I personally really like Rovaniemi's Santa's Village during winter as well and they have the best salmon soup in the restaurant!)
    You already saw the dark nights (and days) of Finland during winter so it would be amazing if you saw the "nightless night"/"midnight sun" of Finnish summer, when the sun doesn't set almost at all! ☀

    The behind the scenes on this would be so cool (no pun intended.) These always feel like cute couple-y vacations at first and then there's the camera crew. The logistics of how all of this was filmed, how the team spent their time, and how you prevented the cameras from freezing, would all fascinate me. (But then who would film the film crew doing their work? I think the arctic circle might get crowded.)

    I'm from Northern Ontario in Canada and we get -40 degrees Celsius in the winter. I've worked at a gold mine in Nunavut and experienced -60 degrees celsius during the winter. While growing up, I've seem a lot of northern lights. Being indigenous to the area, our elders used to tell us that "if you whistle at the northern lights, they'll pick you up and take you away." It was more than likely a deterrent to keep up home late at night. :)

    Please go to Taiwan next! I took a trip there in May and it was the most amazing place. The food is the absolute highlight but also night markets/shopping, there's a growing craft movement (leather goods/jewelry/etc), lots of fun/interesting/luxe accommodations, and of course the culture and geography are fascinating and very unique. It has the climate of a tropical island, the topography and technology of Japan, the urban advancements of Korea with public transport that rivals Germany, and a mix of Chinese/Japanese/SE Asian cultural influences, laid over with a uniquely Taiwanese attitude of positivity and social acceptance. I'm certainly biased because Taiwan is my heritage, but it's my favorite place in the world outside the US.

    My family is Finnish. Both of my great uncles had a sauna each! One had a pool and we would do this in the summer as kids. We'd go into the sauna and go swimming after at night.
    I'm sure my great uncle and aunt would do the dip in the winter too.
    It was so fun as a kid because I'd be up late in the summer in the pool night swimming after a sauna.
