One night is definitely enough here if you are staying in the snow hotel as we did. They tell you that on their website though. It is a fun but strange experience as you don't hang out in your room, you only sleep there. It is way too cold to hang out and during the day visitors can walk in to take a look as all the suites have different ice sculptures and lighting inside (there is a do not disturb sign though). We had a delicious salmon dinner in the warm restaurant there and then a drink in the ice bar which is fun. Then you strip off and run to your room in your thermals and with a couple of sleeping bags with you.
Neither of us sleep particularly well that night. Tossing and turning to get comfortable. We were warm most of the night but getting out to go to the toilet block outside the room was a challenge! We were both very happy to get woken up with hot blueberry juice in the morning! I'm glad we did it but it feels very much like a challenge than a comfortable night's sleep - you even get a certificate at the end!
- 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
