SnowHotel

Sleep on a transparent bed made from snow and ice

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.

Amenities

SnowHotel offers its guests an overnight stay that includes a guided tour of SnowHotel, personal overnighting instructions, high quality and warm arctic sleeping bags with fleece linings, shower and toilet facilities, wake-up with hot drink served in your room, breakfast in the Lumikartano Restaurant, and a certificate of achievement celebrating your overnight stay in arctic conditions inside walls made of snow and ice. In connection with accommodation bookings each of our guests will receive instructions and guidelines about how to make advance preparations for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in SnowHotel.

In SnowHotel you stay overnight in conditions close to freezing point. Therefore, we advise you to pack the following items with you:

  • Warm hat
  • Long-sleeved shirt
  • Long trousers
  • Wool socks

SnowHotel does not have separate toilets and showers. The closest toilet and shower facilities can be found in the adjacent main building, Lumikartano. The hotel accommodation rate includes a daily bathing shift in the saunas located in the main building. The sauna shift is held at the same time for men and women each day at around 10–11 p.m. but the hotel reserves the right to change the times for the sauna. There are separate showers and dressing rooms for men and women.

If staying overnight in SnowHotel at some stage feels a little too extreme, SnowHotel also has a warm area where you can continue your night’s sleep.
