If you have never stayed in an igloo before then you should try this for the experience. The hotel has about 20plus rooms and the structure is made entirely of snow using techniques perfected by the Finns. Ice Cravings are craved by master craftsmen from Harbin, China. Those who know the Harbin International Ice Show should know what I am... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in March 2012, it was a fantastic experience and the hotel staff were great and the food was good. I really enjoyed the dining experience in the evening, dinner is essentially served at big table with everyone sitting together, a nice opportunity to meet the rest of the guests. The rooms... More

We didn't stay the night here but we did visit as a Hurtigruten excursion. It's amazing!! I loved it! We visited towards the end of April so it near the end of the season which meant the rooms weren't being booked anymore. This meant we could see all of the rooms. We were given lots of free time to just... More

Wow!! What an amazing experience! The food & service provided is excellent but the rooms.... AMAZING!!! They are definitely worth the trip alone. Each room has unique carvings & the attention to detail is just astonishing. I had no trouble falling asleep & the cold didn't bother me at all. This was a unique, once in a lifetime experience.

From start to finish this was a once in a life time experience. The pick up at Hurtigruten pier was perfectly organized, the drive to the hotel with great stops to view the area and then the Snowhotel. Wow, wow, wow! Very very nice staff to make us feel welcome and the hotel itself ... wow, wow, wow! A masterpiece!... More

Wow what a place, beautiful carvings in all the rooms. The shower and toilet block were clean and warm. The food in the restaurant was very good. My husband had no problem sleeping in our room and was asleep straight away, I however spend hours trying to get to sleep, but that's just me. We had already been out to... More

OK it is expensive but for the money you get a unique experience. There are about 20 rooms - all decorated differently with snow sculptures set in the walls of each bedroom. Apart from the snow hotel itself, there is a separate 3 storey amenities/restaurant block. This housed showers, sauna, 24 hour warm room (with tea and coffee) as well... More

We stayed in the hotel for one night at the end of a Hurtigruten Cruise. Access to the rooms for those staying is only after dinner. There is a sauna and shower block, below the restaurant, adjacent to the ice hotel to service those staying but no individual lockers or space for the cases which are held in the entrance... More

We visited the hotel after a husky safari. A true magnificent build. To think that this hotel is only there for a few months of the year before the snow melts. The rooms each have its own theme, from Marilyn Monro to a larger family room with the seven dwarfs as a theme. The hotel is not a multi-day stay,... More
