The Igloo Hotel is situated in Sorrisniva, 20 kilometres from Alta town Center, in idyllic surroundings on the banks of the Alta River. The hotel measures approximately 2000 square meters and the entire exterior and interior is made of snow and ice: the rooms, the beds, even the glasses in the ice bar! Apart from its 30 bedrooms, the Igloo Hotel houses suites, a bar, and several lounges. The hotel is decorated with exquisite ice and snow sculptures, crafted by local artists. The changing themes every year ensure a unique experience.
Guests will transfer by bus (no guide) to Sorrisniva, where they will settle in for a relaxing, slow-paced stay at the ice hotel. They can enjoy a 2-course dinner featuring local flavors and ingredients in the (heated and wooden) Laksestua Restaurant next door. Changing rooms, toilets, showers and sauna are all located in the same heated service building, along with common rooms featuring comfortable furniture and crackling fires.
Despite the icy walls and cold air, guests will be toasty warm atop reindeer hides and snuggled into sleeping bags. After a good night’s sleep, breakfast will be waiting to get the visitors ready for their next adventure.
