“Wow, what a Great Experience”
Reviewed April 17, 2017

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.

Stayed in a glass igloo for a night and was lucky enough to experience the Northern Lights from the comfort of my bed! Had dinner in a Lappish Restaurant and explored the Ice Hotel taking in the amazing thrmed suite rooms carved out of snow and ice. Although it is pricey it is well worth the experience.

Hotel is poorly run. It is an interesting product that they provide yet, it is poorly run..

It is hard to have good food or drinks at the hotel. Restaurant of the hotel has very limited menu. You are not welcomed to have food during the times other than lunch, dinner and breakfast time. Not much wine etc alternative is served. You get what you see and what you see is not more than one or two choices.

It looks like, you stay in a boot camp at a luxury hotel price.. However, the hotel serves the purpose of being outdoor hotel. The staff is very friendly and trying to help you all the time.

With a bit touch, this place can turned out to be a luxury outdoor hotel and make greater return to its owner and provide better service to its guests.. However, I don't think there is neither any management intention nor awareness of such need and demand..

My experience with this hotel was rather interesting... I enjoyed the area and outdoor activities yet, I could not get what wanted and from a Lapland outdoor hotel... What I mean is, they did not even have a proper fireplace that we could gather around, have some decent wine and enjoy the journey..

By the way, sleeping in the ice room is kind of an IQ test..:) The rooms do not represent the real ice shelters that was used by humankind.. There has not been such shelters and or sleeping places built in natural way and used by the people live in the nature and or live in outdoor.. The ice rooms that you would stay at Artic hotel have nothing to do the naturally built ones.. It is very uncomfortable and the only experience you get out of it is; being uncomfortable and not having a good sleep after a long outdoor day..

Next time, I will look for an alternative hotel in Lapland, if I can find any better one in Lapland..

Stayed a night in the glass igloos and an experience well worth the cost and it's a must do! The northern lights alarm wakes you up and you can watch the lights from your bed. Breakfast has great variety, is plentiful and has good food. Such an experience.

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
