Visit the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, a fairytale come to life from the surrounding ice and snow. The entire building inside and out - rooms, beds, even the glasses in the bar! - is constructed of local ice and snow from the ground up every year. In the spring, the building will melt completely away again until there's nothing left but memories and photographs, and the plans for next year's new design.

Approximately 2,000 square meters in area, the hotel features around 30 bedrooms and suites, and a central lounge, chapel, art gallery and bar. The hotel is decorated with intricate sculptures and wall carvings created by local artists, following a different theme every year (for example, Norwegian fairy tales or Viking kings). You'll tour the entire hotel at your own pace, and even have a chance to stop at the bar and buy a special drink served to you in an ice glass.

Transport to and from Sorrisniva is not included in the price.
