You get all dressed up in winter clothes, provided, lockers outside, inside at the ice bar you get an ice glass shot ( vodka/juice) ( It was 11 am and didnt... More

We visited Helsinki about a week ago as part of our Viking ocean cruise. The excursion was to Winter World for a visit to the ice bar. We were given warm snow suits, boots, and gloves. It was amazing. We also took a sleigh ride with huskies. That was some ride! It was a tremendous fun. My husband had a... More

I was trying to find an excursion that my 21+ sons would enjoy with us. Hey, Ice Bar and Vodka shots. Wrong!!!! It was more of a small children's playground - oh and hey here have 1 shot of Finish vodka in an ice shot glass. This place is a joke for anyone over 12. If you wanted a second... More

This is an absolute waste of time and money. It is just a bunch of ice and snow inside a large warehouse. If you have never seen snow, it may be a novelty, but for the cost and experience, save your money and visit some real outdoor snow. Tacky tourist spot which is grossly overpriced and under impressive. I only... More

A novelty experience - a large oversized arena kept at a sub zero temperature with icebar (vodka available), igloos (similar to what you'd see in a ice / Nordic hotel setup), active sled dog team, etc. They supply the wintergear (overkill in my view - but in Canadian:) insulated hiking boots, jeans, down Jacket and gloves would sufficient for 20-30...

When you arrive you are taken to a room and given gloves, boots and a snowmobile suit. There are lockers to keep your street shoes in. When you are dressed you waddle to the door of the cold room. Once inside you make your way to the Ice Bar. This is made entirely of ice. You are given a drink... More

Oh we just loved every minute of this. The ice bar and Whisky is so good. A highlight and must do is the Husky dogs sledge ride in the snow! A visit inside an Igloo also very interesting! Definitely a must when you go to Helsinki.

We enjoyed our time at the Unique Laplands with Finland's best tour guide, Paulo (of Paulo's Tours). It was a nice way to cool down from the heat and experience a winter wonderland in July. Unfortunately, it was a very quiet day and the dogs weren't there, but we enjoyed our time nonetheless! We especially enjoyed our vodka ice shot!... More

We went there with a tour group. A big hall (I think it was built as a skating rink), -3 deg Celcius, green and blue light, you walk on snow, there is an ice bar where they serve you drinks in an ice glass, you can have a husky ride or use kick-sledges or sliding hill. They give you thermic... More
