Sleep on a transparent bed made from snow and ice

Arctic SnowHotel is one of the biggest snow hotels in the world, and sleeps about 70 guests. This spectacularly handsome attraction and landmark, opens annually on 15th December and 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, 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.



Arctic SnowHotel

The first Arctic SnowHotel was opened in December 2008 and after that new one has been built every year. Inside Arctic SnowHotel you can find approximately 20 hotel rooms, ice chapel, ice restaurant and ice bar. The temperature is between 0C and -5C degrees at all times (even when it is much colder outside!). The hotel area can be visited by paying an entrance ticket to the reception and overnight guests (both in glass igloos and snow hotel) are permitted to visit all these areas inside Arctic SnowHotel.



There are rooms of many different sizes available in snow hotel of Arctic Snow Hotel & Glass Igloss. We have superior rooms in double, triple and family categories. Snow hotel rooms have electric lighting. The beds have normal mattresses with soft bed covers on top of them but the bed frames are made of ice. Unfortunately it is not possible to arrange extra beds into the rooms. The sizes of the superior rooms vary between 9–15m².

In addition to superior rooms we also provide suite accommodation. Every snow suite is uniquely different from the other. The Arctic atmosphere of the unique suites is perfected with magnificent artwork made from snow and ice that are unique for each room. The size of the suite is approximately 28m².

Accommodation and visiting available in the snow hotel from 15th Dec until 31st March.

Be prepared for the cold

As the temperature inside is all the time between 0 and -5C degrees and the guests are sleeping in sleeping bags, only one night stay is recommended as you get the once-in-a-lifetime experience already after one night. Overnight is not recommended for children under 5 years old.

In snow hotel 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

Arctic SnowHotel does not have separate toilets and showers in each room but there is a shared toilet close to the hotel rooms, inside the snow hotel. If staying overnight in snow hotel at some stage feels a little too extreme, there also is a warm area where you can continue your night’s sleep.

Included in the accommodation price

Soon after your check-in, Arctic SnowHotel guide will give you a guided tour of the area during which you learn about safety aspects and where everything is located. You will also receive instructions for sleeping overnight at the snow hotel and for the sleeping bag. The sleeping bags are of high quality and warm Arctic sleeping bags with fleece linings.

When staying in at the Arctic SnowHotel, breakfast is always included in the accommodation rate and is served in Log restaurant. If you leave before the breakfast starts, you can request for breakfast package which you can pick up from the reception before you leave.
