SI Swimsuit 2017: Inside the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland

A snow-covered Finland may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of Hailey Clauson and Bo Krsmanovic sporting teeny bikinis, but this unique destination served as the perfect backdrop for this year's issue of SI Swimsuit.

So where did the SI Swimsuit crew keep warm? The incredible Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, of course!

If you're looking for an insane view of the magical glow of the Northern Lights, look no further than this enchanting destination just 150 miles north of the Artic circle. And with Kakslauttanen's iconic glass igloos, you can see them from the comfort of your own bed. The resort also offers rustic log chalets or Kelo-Glass Igloos, which provide the best of both worlds.
