Owner description: ARTICO ICE BAR es una experiencia unica. No somos una atraccion turistica ni un lugar fresquito para tomar algo o uno de esos locales hechos con hielo de congelador en lugares impensables de Europa.MOSTRAMOS EL HIELO DEL ARTICO EN EL ARTICO. En primavera -verano, cuando no hay nieve ni hielo en el paisaje, le mostramos lo que la naturaleza ha hecho durante los frios meses de invierno. Trozos de los lagos helados de Laponia , nieve de sus montanas , la sensacion del frio inviernal y la noche polar en pleno estio. El conocimiento de la naturaleza a traves del hielo en estado puro. Podra observar el hielo natural, tocarlo y sentirlo plenamente. Porque tocar es sentir.ARTICO ICE BAR BAR is a unique experience. We are neither a tourist attraction nor a nippy place to have a break or one of those business made with freezer ice in unthinkable places in Europe.WE SHOW ARCTIC ICE IN THE ARCTIC. In spring-summer, when there is neither snow nor ice in the landscape, we show you what nature has made during the cold months of winter. Pieces of the frozen lakes of Sapmi, snow from its mountains, the feeling of winter cold and the polar night in summer. You will see the knowledge of nature through ice in pure state. You will be able to fully watch natural ice, touch it and feel it. Because touching is feeling.

“Something different in Norway!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

If you think that all the towns and cities along the Norwegian coast look the same, you're not alone. That's not to say that the scenery isn't stunning (it is) and the people aren't unreservedly friendly (they are), but all the touristy shops sell the same stuff, mostly gaudy tat. The Artico Icebar in Honningsvag made a refreshing change from all that with a gift shop that actually sold something different, and at prices that didn't have you reaching instantaneously for the defibrillator; as with the ice bars in other Scandinavian cities, you could pay to be kitted out in thermals and step into the frozen interior for a drink from a 'glass' made of ice, but there was a lengthy queue for that, so we passed. However, the gift shop was great!
