Everyone wants to view the Northern Lights when in Norway or Finland and this hotel is the perfect place to do it if they "come out to play". Just lie on your bed with electric controls and set the height and angle you wish to watch the lights by. Open a bottle of wine that you have chilled in the snow just outside your door. What could be more perfect.
There are about 40 igloos at the hotel, plus an ice hotel with accommodation, ice bar etc. This would also be a unique experience for the night. There is a lovely restaurant, with bar for dinner and breakfast which was very good. Also a number of his and hers saunas.
The property is so pretty and unlike anything we have stayed in previously.
Wifi is available although the further away your igloo is from the main building the weaker it can get.
Overall a terrific place to stay.
- 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
