We spent a night in the Thor suite in early February, and it was a highlight of our trip to northern Norway. The snow carvings are impressive, and the lighting design inside the ice was beautifully done- the whole igloo has a really cool (ha) atmosphere. As someone who is always cold, I expected to be chilly during the night, but wasn't at all- it was quite cozy! You get two arctic sleeping bags each (rated to -30°C), and are on top of a pile of reindeer skins, so you stay nice and warm. The snow absorbs almost all noise, so it was really silent and peaceful inside- we ended up having a top notch sleep. In the morning, there is a sauna to warm up in. This is followed by a delicious breakfast next to a really gorgeous fireplace in the main building (which also features unique construction, this time of wood). There are also outdoor hot tubs with great views of the surrounding mountains. The whole place has a really friendly, comfortable vibe- upscale but cozy. Highly recommended, and well worth a visit!…
We visited the ice hotel late December. It was a beautiful experience, well worth the price. This year the theme is vikings, and the carvings are just amazing. We considered sleeping there, but ended up somewhere else. The suites are really beautiful and well designed. The regular rooms are not really worth the price. There is a small chapel, an ice bar where you can buy a drink and drink it from ice-cups. The most stunning was the lighting that really enhanced the experience and gave life to the whole experience. This was a WOW- experience!
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!!!!!
