We left from Glasgow Airport at around 7.45am and spent a glorious day with our two young kids at the snow village. From the staff at the airport, to the on board staff to all the friendly elves on site everyone was trying hard to make this a magical trip that the kids would remember for ever. The flight out...

Truly amazing experience beginning with the Thomson air crew and staff. Nothing was too much trouble ,they kept the children and adults entertained from start to finish with goody bags, colouring competitions, Christmas sing along " with actions" from the crew. Upon arrival at kittila the magic began as soon as we descended below the cloud and saw the snow... More

Extremely disappointing and non magical! But the kids did enjoy! My husband and I were left utterly disappointed with the experience and didn't feel it was good value for money at all. Whilst I was expecting to not have enough time to get round everything in the 3.5 hours we had there, we were more than ready to leave! It... More

My partner and I stayed for one night at the Snow Hotel as part of a longer break in Lapland. The experience was amazing. We arrived in the evening and had Finlandia Vodka served in ice glasses from the ice bar. We then had a private tour through all the rooms in the Snow Village and were shown to our... More

After seeing the website for the ice hotel, we were really excited to go and visit. We had already booked another excursion for the same day as our tour operator's trip to the Snow Village, so decided to get a taxi there ourselves on a different day. This was quite expensive, but 100% worth it! It cost around €40 each... More

What a fantastic experience! Kind of like camping except that none of your friends really want to hear about your camping trip (boring!) But the night you slept in the ice hotel?? Everyone wants to hear all the details and see all the pictures! LOL There are 2 types of accommodations, suites and rooms. I didn't see any suites at... More

We went on the search for Santa day trip with Thomson Holidays. We got to the snow village at lunch time. Lunch was included in the day trip, there was a vegetarian lasagne type dish with fries and warm juice. It was rather poor to be honest and didn't set you up for the day like the brochure suggested. We... More

We stayed for a night in the ice hotel, followed by 5 nights in the teepee cabin for our honeymoon in February. The ice hotel is beautiful and an incredible piece of engineering. We stayed in an ice suite and thought the extra cost was worth it to spend a night surrounded by the detailed carvings of penguins in our... More
