If you would like to experience something unique and unusual during your stay in Lapland, then the visit of the snow hotel should definitely be on your bucket list!
Located 30km away from Rovaniemi centre, this hotel completely made of snow and ice is one of the largest snow constructions in the Nordic countries! Inside you may find many hotel rooms (yes, you may stay overnight!), an ice chapel, an ice bar, an ice restaurant… Each room is designed in a unique thematic and adorned with beautiful ice sculptures.
The tour includes comfortable transportation from/to Rovaniemi by minivan and the entrance to the snow hotel. Your guide will also happily join you along the visit to show you the different rooms, and explain a bit more about the construction of the hotel.
During the visit, if the ice bar is open, you can even order a drink (not included in the price) and "chill" around an ice table! The drinks are served in an ice glass, naturally!
Estimated time for the visit: 45min-1 hour The activity starts from Rovaniemi at 14:30, we may also arrange the visit at another time on request.
If you want to experience more, you may enjoy a 3-course dinner in the ice restaurant or in the cozy wooden kota restaurant. Please contact us at email@example.com to request more information. Dinner cannot be ordered on spot, as it must be arranged in advance.
