Stayed for just one night last week as part of a longer northern lights trip based in Alta. We had a great two days at Sorrisniva and strongly recommend it.
The ice hotel hotel itself was a once in a lifetime experience, it is straight out of a film set, stunning ice sculptures, amazing light, a beautiful chapel and fabulous bar area - a magical fairy tale place. We slept well in a winter wonderland.
The non-ice built parts of the hotel (dining room, sauna, tv room etc) were also excellent, lots of warmth and very comfortable. Hans and the staff were really friendly, very helpful and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.The restaurant was very good indeed, superb dinner made from local produce - great cod and elk.
The surroundings were magical, moonlit walks with kick sleds on the frozen Tana river, exploring the Tana valley on dog sleds and going up onto the plateau by snowmobile - all unforgettable experiences.
Staying here is not cheap, but then nothing is in Norway. Overall an experience I would definitely do again.
