  • Join a guided tour around this quirky hotel made of snow and ice.

  • Enjoy an ice-cold crowberry shot in Norway’s largest ice bar.

  • Admire the amazing ice-carved sculptures and interior décor.

  • See reindeer that graze on the grounds and the 180 Alaskan huskies.

Our visit to the coolest hotel in Norway begins with a stroll to the hotel and a beverage in Norway’s largest ice bar, where we’ll be greeted and treated to an ice-cold crowberry shot.

The host or hostess will then show us around the hotel. The magnificent Snow Suites are made entirely of snow and ice, featuring furniture, sculptures, and wall carvings crafted by artists from around the world. Each room is a its own gem, with a different theme.

Then, you’ll meet the reindeer that roam the Gabba Reindeer Safari Park and make furry friends at the Dogyard, home to 180 Alaskan huskies and their pups.

Before we leave, relax by the glowing fire in the hotel’s restaurant and enjoy a light bite of local food.

To cap off the trip and if time allows, we’ll stop at Prestfjellet Mountain for magnificent panoramic views of the town of Kirkenes and the surrounding area.
