The hotel restaurant has really great food & staff. They did not have a system of warning guests of the Northern Lights which would be a good addition to the good service they offer. Also there were no charging point in the rooms despite electric lights being under the beds. It is very well presented, though not cheap for obvious... More

We stayed for one night with the 3 course diner and left very happy the next morning. When we arrived on a full bus we were a bit worried about the crowd. later we heard only 4 persons would stay the night so we would have an almost private tour of the hotel. The tour was very helpful and the... More

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

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
