“GREAT experience from start to finish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Yes, it's expensive, but worth it! Where else can you get driven 1000 feet up a mountain to a special little yurt that holds maybe 50 people and have a fabulous 6 course meal served to you by a staff that truly treats you like family; with a killer view; even waiting outside to use the restroom was beautiful! The ride down the mountain was equally enjoyable, especially on a clear night, the view is breathtaking. If you can swing it, I highly recommend it!

“Lunch on the mountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

What a cool little place ! These yurts are kinda like permanent tents but have a full restaurant inside. Food was great and the folks running the place were super nice and provided very quick friendly service.

“Special honeymoon treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

I was treated to the Viking yurt experience whilst on honeymoon. I didn't know anything about it, and it was a wonderful surprise. You get taken up the mountain by a snow cat on a sled covered over with blankets, so it's not too cold.
In the yurt there was a log fire, and a pianist, which was a lovely accompaniment to the yummy 5 or 6 course dinner. The food was very good. Just recommend you take your own wine, as their wine list isn't cheap. But we treated ourselves anyway. Holy recommended. What a great experience.

“Expensive, but worth it if you are looking for unique experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is not a good event for kids. Our group was 8 adults, while we enjoyed everything about it we all agreed it was about an hour to long. Food was excellent, atmosphere excellent, sleigh ride excellent - just a bit to long.
