Miles from anywhere, there is no light pollution so sightings of the northern lights were expected. Saw it for 10 mins early in the evening. Ate ion the ice restaurant which was an experience but way overpriced for what it was. My husband had salmon and I had Elk. It was so cold in there we had our full outdoor kit on including hats. The ice bar was great, drinking from shot glasses made of ice that we were allowed to smash against the bar when we had finished our shot. Didn't have a sauna or Jacuzzi as had run out of money by that point, but it did look like an experience, especially the ice sauna. Very cold in our room but toastie in the 2 layered arctic sleeping bag on top of an animal skin. I slept well but don't relish sleeping in my wooly hat ever again. In summary a 1 off experience but next time will save up for an igloo!
- 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
