ARTICO ICE BAR es una experiencia unica. No somos una atraccion turistica...

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.

We had a great time in the Ice Bar. You actually need to go in the gift shop to buy your tickets and enter the Ice Bar. We had a lot of fun inside the Ice Bar taking photos on the sleigh, in the Igloo, behind bar or just sat down in the ice seats round the Ice table. They... More

Artico Icebar is great place to enjoy the arctic experience. This is cool place where you find everything made of ice including the glass that you drink your soda.

We visited Honningsvag in summer so to have the cool experience we visited the Icebar. There is a cheap gift shop (by Norwegian standards) with lovely items and a Christmas shop upstairs. The boys enjoyed the Icebar. Climbing in the igloo, the ice cups and photos behind the sled.

Visited the Artico Ice Bar on a visit to Honningsväg from NCL Star Nice set up within the Ice Bar, novelty of an Igloo you can scramble into should you wish Thermal ponchos to keep you walk - and they're needed, even though it was cold outside, it is extremely cold in the bar. Only down side was that for... More

The bar was really charming and the girls who worked were very sweet and helpful. However, when we got inside we found that the two drinks that came with the ticket price were actually Kool-Aid in fancy bottles. Bummer. Not sure I would pay what I paid to go in again. But still glad I did not.

Incredible place & friendly staff! Located just nearby the pier - so it's convenient for whoever comes with a cruise ship. Highly recommend to everybody! Very cozy icy spot :)

Okay, so you kinda, sorta, have to do this. I mean, your this far north, right? It's overpriced. It's not a bar. They have a fruity KoolAid type drink that the serve you one shot of in a frozen cup. You can see the tables made out of ice, but your not really going to sit there and hang out,... More

It is a short walk from where the ships dock and we were there June 2015 others in the group really liked. The hosts were friendly and enjoyable. I forgot how much we paid and it included a non-alcoholic shot of your choice in a glass you could take with you. The shot glass was solid ice so it wouldn't... More
