Visited at end of February, the ice carvings are stunning, the rooms icy cold, well worth a visit as a once in a lifetime experience. Only there a few months of the year, co coincide with a husky sled ride and tour. Wrap up warm and enjoy a blue vodka at the bar

Visited here as part of a Cruise tour off the P&O ship Aurora. A joint visit to coincide with Snowmobiling. Note though that this was just a visit! Interesting hotel with ice sculptures. We received a nice talk from the guide/owner. Beautiful inside as far as the lighting and bedrooms go. The bedrooms looked 'comfortable' with their Reindeer skins. Not sure if it would be for us though. There was an ice Bar where we were given a blue vodka drink in an ice glass. It was just an hour long visit but it did give an insight into the hotel.

on arrival we were given a tour of the property the unique surroundings and the igloo hotel bar which is just amazing. The room was amazing nice warm reindeer skins and very warm sleeping bags. there was a very comfy warm lounge to relax in after dinner and before bed. The dining experience was very special. Fine Dining to the max two of my courses were served on a block of ice!!! made all the more special by our waitress Camilla who attended to every detail explaining our entrees and where they were sourced from locally. Overall a remarkable experience. Top of my Bucket List!!!!!

This igloo is way too cool and not as cold as you would expect. On arrival you are taken on a short tour of the property from the main lodge. Snow shoes are available as well as dog and reindeer sleds. A very pleasant evening was provided with options for several Norwegian specialty foods. The high light is the igloo itself which is rebuilt every years in December and melts in April. You can choose the tour or stay overnight. When many people are present a slight fog or mist develops. This just makes great atmosphere to see the many snow and ice sculptures which include full sized altars, characters from children’s storie (Billy Goat Gruff and bridge) and mythological creature. Your personal igloo will have a bed made of ice covered with animal skins so you and/or your clothes will not freeze to it. Sleeping bags are also provided which are quite warm. It was a very comfy experience followed by a great breakfast. Would do it again in a flash!

Sarrisniva Igloo Hotel . We just visited this hotel last week. I must say it was one of our highlights for the Norway trip. it is so immaculate. precisely carved and built .there are 22-23 bedrooms ,a bar. we were told that people rent it out for weddings and special occasions . the only problem which we were told is that the bathroom is outside the hotel.we did not stay in night but we had a tour booked to go and visit this place.
