Snowhotel Kirkenes

Snowhotel Kirkenes

Ice cubes in the glass, of course, but when the table, the chairs, the walls, the counter, the candlesticks, the decor and even the fireplace are made of ice, then it really is a snow hotel! Join us for an unforgettable visit to the hotel where everything is made of snow and ice.

As you visit the indoor world of ice, you also get to meet some of the animals that live in the cold polar region. Meet the reindeer that as you know pull Santa's sleigh, but which are both draft animals and domestic animals here in the North. Big, wild herds can be found throughout the white expanses and are an important part of Sami life and culture.  

After meeting the reindeer, the journey takes us to the ice bar for a cold welcome drink with juice from the wild Arctic crowberry. Next, we visit the huskies, and then a light meal is served on an ice table in a world of ice. You are surrounded by large, beautiful ice sculptures, the walls and windows are made of ice and snow, and while the flower vase might look like it is glass, it is also made of ice.  

On the way back to the Havila Voyages ship and weather permitting, there will also be a photo stop on Prestefjellet.
