We arrived around 7 30pm and had a tour of the cold, and warm, facilities which overnight guests could use. As day visitors don't leave until 10pm we joined them to view the beautifully carved rooms, chapel, ice slide and hallways prior to our rooms becoming available. We had a drink, vodka shot in an ice glass, in the ice... More

My wife, daughter & I have just returned from an amazing weeks holiday at the Snow Village. We booked our holiday with Mighty Fine Travel & I just had to share our experience on Trip Advisor. My wife had always wanted to experience staying in an ice hotel & after searching on the internet I found the holiday at Kittila,... More

Even when you don't plan to sleep at the Snow Village it is very worthwhile to pay it a visit when you are around Kittilä. One pays 10€ (5€ for a child) and you can visit the hotel with all of its rooms and suites; only the sauna is for guests only. The setup of the hotel is great with... More

Wow where does one start...this place was amazing and Linda Seppälä and Emma Kosonen a huge thanks for making our stay so very special.

Went there some days ago, made a reservation in the ice restaurant. Worth eating there, fantastic food and very nice people. Not that cold, you can use extra blankets. And they serve food in a short period of time, within 1,5 hr we had 3 courses. Because we made a reservation in the restaurant, we didn't have to pay for... More

We did this as part of an Inghams package. The price does not include a room with carvings so we upgraded for 80euros . We arrived about 7.30 the rooms are not available until 10.00 as people are looking all around the hotel taking photos. It wasn't a problem. Lots to see and we had a drink in the ice... More

We spent two nights at Snow Village between Christmas and New Years 2014. It was a bit of a detour from our original plan, but we liked the idea of staying in an ice room. Let me start by saying that, yes, the place has a unique charm. We spent the first night in one of the Snow Hotel suites... More

My son and I travelled to the Snow Village for a few hours as an optional excursion with Thomson while we were staying at the Crazy and White Reindeer Hotel. We were greeted off the bus people in snow leopard suits which was great fun for the children. Then a lumberjack took our group a little way into the woods... More

Initially we booked a room in the snow village and decided to upgrade to a suite, after all it is a once in a lifetime experience for most of us. I recommend this as the suites have the most fantastic ice carvings on the walls and beautiful lighting making it a much cosier environment, if that is possible in an... More
