The Arctic Ice Dome is set in idyllic surroundings near the Russian border. Our time here begins by meeting the guide and enjoying a refreshing, ice-cold drink. The guide will then show us around the ice dome complex, a magnificent multi-room gallery full of intricately carved snow and ice sculptures.  

After the tour, there will be time to visit the husky kennels and meet some of the many dogs who live there. We finish the excursion with a traditional snack at the restaurant which has glorious views over towards the Russian border.
