Watching the Northern Lights in a 'Sled Hotel'

I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights.  I do plan on seeing them at some point, it is very high on my bucket list.  When I think of escaping the #9to5Matrix, I always think of someplace warm and tropical. 

I am a beach lover.  An island lover.  But, there are other places that are cold but are very fascinating.  Alaska comes to mind.  Iceland is extremely fascinating.  Norway has just gotten a new advantage.  The tour operator Off the Map Travel has launched three custom-made hotel rooms that are absolutely perfect for their home in Arctic Finland thanks to the simple fact that they are built on sleds.

According to Travel + Leisure, each of the sled hotel rooms comfortably fits two people and measures eight feet wide, almost 15 feet long and 6.5 feet tall. Inside guests can find everything they’d need to have a comfy overnight stay in the sub-zero temperatures including a bed, dining table, gas heater, and external dry toilet. The best part, however, is the glass roof, which is ideal for viewing the Northern Lights right from the comfort, and warmth, of your sled bed.

This is just a cool ass idea.
