A bit further from the centre and takes around 30 min to get to from city centre. Transportation is at a price. The hotel provides 2 types on rooms, glass igloo with glass roof and ice hotel with ice walls and beds built from ice. We stayed in the glass igloo which is for 3. The log is not large and just fit for 3 adults with some luggages. Beds are adjustable for viewing aurora. Wifi is free with strong connection. Breakfast is included and food is acceptable. The snow hotel with a restaurant and bar inside inside is interesting as it is built every year with ice from the surrounding. Hotel is isolated but there are 3 restaurants for dining and requires booking in advance. Limited menu but food is good especially the grilled salmon. Everything in this hotel is at a cost but it would have been the best way to view northern lights with enough luck.
- 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
