Spend the night in the worlds northernmost ice hotel. This year we're open for the 20th time!
Every year in November/December the Igloo hotel is built up from scratch of natural snow and ice. The theme of the hotel changes every year but is rooted in winter, history and the arctic. Feel the silence of the sturdy walls and soft snow floor. Marvel at the ice sculptures and snow carvings that you find in the hotel. Take a walk through the bedrooms including the unique decorated suites. Inside the ice hotel you'll also find the ice bar where you can enjoy the special Sorrisniva Igloo Blue drink from a handmade ice glass. Outside the hotel you can take a walk under the vast sky and enjoy the crisp air of Arctic winter.
In the main wooden building you can relax and enjoy dinner and drinks. A table is automatically reserved for you in our restaurant as a staying guest. The menu is based on local ingredients and you can choose from an a la carte menu. When you're ready to call it a night you'll bring your sleeping bags with you out to the room where the beds are covered with reindeer hides. In the morning our heated sauna and breakfast buffet awaits to get you ready for your next adventure.
