“As the world’s most northerly snow hotel, Snowhotel Kirkenes offers an exciting stay. Choose from hip gamme cabins, open all year, or a separate hotel made of snow and ice which are only available in the winter. Facilities are excellent – our favourite has to be the sauna where you can run straight out into the snow to cool yourself down. Magic!”
Set in an idyllic location in the Arctic Circle, Snowhotel Kirkenes is surrounded by forests and mountains on the banks of an arctic fjord. The unique igloo hotel is crafted afresh from snow and ice each winter, offering guests a magical winter wonderland.
There are 20 rooms decorated with individually carved ice sculptures following a theme from Arctic nature, folklore or fairy tales. Despite the temperature of -4, guests enjoy a good night’s sleep in thermal sleeping bags. There are also cosy ‘Gamme’ cabins open year round, ideal for Northern Lights watching and summer adventures.
Snowhotel has two restaurants serving fresh local produce such as king crab, reindeer, and arctic fish.
There’s an array of winter activities on offer, including husky sledding, king crab safaris, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ice fishing and Northern Lights hunting. After a thrilling day, warm up with a sauna and nightcap in the Icebar before bed.
