This hotel is not a typical finnish one. You can sleep in a snowhotel, where all the rooms are different. They all have a different theme. The lights in the rooms are incredible. In the hotel, there is a locker room, where you can put clothes on for the night. You get ther also a sleeping bag. Other way to...

We didn't actually spend the night in the hotel but came on an evening tour from Rovaniemi just to have a look around. We had an excellent guided tour which showed us every nook and cranny of the complex and it was an intimate group of only 4. The ice hotel is a wonder to behold as they make it...

Thank you for your visit, I am glad you enjoyed it! A quick tour is great if you don't want to stay overnight, rather just see the place and get this icy experience. Welcome in the future to stay in our glass igloos!

The hotel is made every winter and is different every time. The rooms, the restaurant and the bar are lavishly decorated with ice sculptures and beautiful carvings in ice.. It is definitely an experience of a lifetime. We did not stay in the ice room as it was too cold for us (-7 degrees) but we took the glass igloo...

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you didn't get service immediately - our staff will do their best to serve our guests as soon as possible. We do have sledges which you can use to get your luggage to your igloo - I apologize that you didn't get this information or see them outside.

It was definitely worth the visit but very touristy and at times felt like being on a package tour. We stayed in the glass igloo and it was comfortable enough but fairly basic. It was definitely warm which was nice and would have been great if the northern lights had shown up but the weather is always unpredictable. We enjoyed...

Thank you for your feedback, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit! We have different things to offer for our guests; 3 different restaurants, traditional Finnish sauna and also snow saunas - unforgettable experience especially if you try most of them. I agree, it is hard to explain, you just have to give it a go.

Interesting place to visit, definitely design for tourist but it's an experience. The igloos has only 20 mins of hot water per day so please take note, they are not exceptionally huge more suitable for couples than huge families. Win or the rooms in the ice hotels anytime, which everything is iced and cool except the furs on the bed....

Thank you for your comments. Actually, we do have also family glass igloos which are 33m2 and we can fit 5 beds inside of it so bigger families are also welcomed!

We stayed one night in the snow hotel as part of a group of mainly not young, but fun- and adventure-loving travellers. It's magical when you arrive on a snowy night, sit in the restaurant for the sleeping-bag demo and see the reindeer in the enclosure in the grounds. And the snow hotel entrance with its giant fish sculptures is...

I can't recommend this place highly enough....I stayed a night in the glass igloo and it was such a great experience. I was VERY lucky and got to see the northern lights too - thanks entirely to the great set up they have at the hotel whereby if the northern lights are spotted, then an alarm sounds in your room....

I spent one night in an igloo with my boyfriend in January. Although we didn't get to see the Northern lights, I enjoyed our stay. The hotel offers something unique. Although it is not cheap, staying in an igloo was once in a lifetime experience for us. Igloos are pretty comfortable, woth adjustable beds to see the view much better....

Thank you for your feedback and useful information for the other guests. As you mentioned, we had a wedding that night so that caused some changes for our standard procedure but I am glad that it didn't have much effect on your stay. For this winter season, we have managed to get the wifi working also inside the glass igloos....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
ARCTIC SNOWHOTEL Our SnowHotel sleeps 70 guests and is one of the largest in the Nordic region. This spectacularly handsome building is carved each year to be different in appearance. The walls and furniture surfaces of the unique rooms are decorated with ice art and illuminated artwork. The room temperature is 0–5C°, but using the sleeping bags intended for extreme conditions combined with reindeer furs, you can be sure you will stay in warmth and comfort. On the shores of the lake the moonlight, stars and Northern Lights illuminate the silent, Lappish nature. As our guest you will have a good night’s sleep as the Aurora Alarm searches the skies for you. GLASS IGLOOS Next to SnowHotel you will find the tranquillity of the glass igloos. Staying overnight in a glass igloo feels like sleeping in the open, but inside the igloo it is just as warm and cosy as a hotel. The igloo village is set in an opening surrounded by pine trees, sufficiently far away from the city lights, making ideal conditions for watching the Northern Lights and enjoying starry skies. Have a good night’s sleep as the Aurora Alarm searches the skies for you: once the Aurora Alarm has woken you up, all you need to do is open your eyes, look at the night sky and enjoy the sight from the comfort of your bed. ... more   less
