I am  writing this letter to offer our sincere thanks, regarding a recent holiday trip at the Snow Village during February. It was a wonderful experience and this place was really beautiful with all the ice and snow carving. I felt it was very important to highlight the wonderful service and assistance offered by one of your staff Mylla (... More

Very unique place with stunning beauty. It is difficult to understand to amount of the work it takes to build this hotel every year again. Walls, ceilings, furniture etc. are all genuine snow and ice. Ice hotel had 28 rooms which all had its own theme for ice carvings. On arrival we spend time to visit practically all the rooms...

You must visit this Snow Village the attention to detail is incredible with each room with a different theme. The Restaurant and Bar is available for refreshments, which I think you have to book a table in advance. Try out the Ice slide, its not just for Kids LOL!!!

We stayed at Snow Village for one night in December 2015 & it was an amazing, if somewhat chilly experience. But honestly would not have missed it for the world. I have read other reviews about it not being finished or ready for the season, & yes, maybe that was true (due to not cold enough weather) but it was... More

The whole Trip was magical from arriving at Doncaster to getting home. The staff at the airport and the whole of the Cabin Crew on the Doncaster flight on the 23rd December were amazing, Bev and the crew kept all the children entertained and singing and were full of energy, The Snow Village was brilliant and very well organised, we...

The trip was well organised with the only chaotic bit being getting the winter clothes. This one area processes too many people in too short a period of time. After that we got the bus to the Snow Village and got well briefed on the way. The village itself was compact but perfect for the brief time we had there.... More

From the moment you step on the plane and are greeted by the stewards who have Santa hats on you know it's going to be magical! All the kids are given packs and are kept busy on the flight singing Xmas songs and playing games. Even the Captain got in on the act by making the kids think Santa had... More

We had a fantastic time, however 8 coaches at one time did make it very busy. We had to stand to eat for lunch and queued for 15 minutes in -19 temperatures for the reindeer sleigh ride. Other than that it was beautiful! The kids (6 and 3) were blown away and loved Santa's visit. Husky dogs were gorgeous and... More

Lainio snow village - taken several weeks to construct this year and still in process due to mild temperatures. You get to visit the chapel, all the bedrooms with fantastic carvings and the ice restaurant.

We visited for the day on 13th December from Bristol. It really was fantastic experience which we enjoyed so much....but.....just wish we had stayed for longer. We knew it was going to be a long day and that it would be chaotic at certain times, such as getting the snow gear in the hanger, so we went with an open... More
