We visited one afternoon in March 22. It was quiet, with only a handful of customers. It was expensive (everything is in Norway, especially alcohol) I can't remember how much, but it was, for us, a unique opportunity to experience an ice bar and it was enjoyable. I think it was -5 inside but we were well wrapped up as it was cold and snowing outside and we didn't need to accept the offer of additional clothes. Our deal included 2 drinks each, the first a wine based fruity drink and the second anything from the cocktail list.
The bar, tables and benches were made of ice and there were some ice sculptures. It was a fun experience and I'm glad we did it but it was one of those things you probably don't need to do more than once.

This is one of the only bars where you drink gets colder rather than warmer, the longer is sits on your table.

Constructed inside a large studiospace, this is an artificial ice bar but don't let that put you off: all of the sculptures are made of ice and if it were not for the controlled low temperature, the place would genuinely melt away.

You pay a reasonable entrance fee, which includes a beer, and after that you pay if you want more drinks. It was good to see there was no pressure or expectation that you would buy more drinks, you could happily just have the one and enjoy the ambience.

There are several impressive sculptures to see and small rooms with tables and fur skin rugs that allow you to sit down and not feel the chill from the ice benches. Cold weather coats are provided but we just turned up on our cold weather gear.

Sitting with your beer on the ice table getting colder by the minute is a novel sensation and contributes to the real 'fun' feel of the place. It is something a bit out of the ordinary and definitely worth a visit. In fact we came back at least once more because it really was (wait for it) a very cool bar.

Thanks for reading.

Taking under consideration that we failed to see the northern lights and sea wildlife, I would say that the ice bar was my most complete experience in Tromso! I just loved it! Not only it's a unique experience but also, bc Tromso activities are super expensive, was the only thing that was value for money. 22 euros with welcome drink included. Make time to stay and enjoy the lovely art work, it's indeed magical, you are given a thermal Poncho and special gloves to cope with the cold. The staff was super friendly, especially our bartender, a lovely Spanish girl. Congratulations to all that contributed, especially to the artists!

A fun thing to do whilst visiting the arctic circle, but do bear in mind that it has a metal floor and does feel quite touristy, in comparison to the genuine outdoor versions that exist in that region. There are different entry fee options, we chose the one with a free cocktail, which is overpriced but we accepted that we'd pay a premium for the novelty factor. We were the only ones in the bar most of the time, which meant we had to wait a bit to get served as there were no staff around. What ruined it slightly was that the staff whisked away our glasses as soon as we'd taken the last sip, turned the music off and the lights up over half an hour before they were due to close. We had wanted to stay longer but felt forced out, which slightly tarnished the experience. Booking is not necessary but you do get a discount if you book online or at the ticket office in advance of going in.

This is a small but unique place to visit in Tromso... It's near information center..
Made up of different designs purely in ice is good experience...Even though its freezing cold inside,they do provide warm cloths and also complimentary wine..
Their gift items are also worth purchasing..cost is 225NOK per head..
I think it's worth to visit once

The staff is super friendly. They even knew Italian!
Expect your feet to be a little cold, after a while. There is an entrance fee: me and my wife paid 280 NOK each. For that price you get a warm cape to put over your coat, gloves, a welcome drink and a second cocktail of your choice.
Of course some could say it’s a bit of a touristy trap, but we had a good time.

It was an amazing experience. The staff is very nice, polite and they made our experience one to remember. We missed the ice domes in Tromso and this made up for it!
So happy to visit this place and meet the nice guys and girls that work that!

Skål! -5c in this ice bar. Cool experience with my Mom (literally)! One and only time I would go to an Ice Bar and Tromso seemed like the perfect place to go to one.

Last night we had a quick drink at the Magic Ice Bar. A short but great experience if you have never done it before. The art sculptures are brilliant and it’s -5 degrees inside so they give you a warm poncho to wear over your other garments whilst inside!
It was 280 NOK per person for a welcome drink + a second drink of your choice. The welcome drink wasn’t that nice but the shot of baileys that followed did the trick
