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

We travelled on 13/12/2014 from Bournemouth to Lapland on a day trip with Thomson. In summary, an amazing day enjoyed by my wife & I and by our 3 children. From the staff at the airport, to the staff on the plane to the staff in Lapland and all the activities, everything was fantastic ! The only negatives, Santa in... More

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...

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
