You will not freeze when you stay here. The beds are warm and comfortable with reindeer fur, and there are toilets and showers with hot water in a building next door. Here you will also find a restaurant serving local, Arctic food.

The hotel

The Kirkenes Snow Hotel is built from scratch every year. This year it has more than 40 rooms, a bar and a chapel. All made out of snow and ice. You can choose between queen and king size beds, and all rooms have snow decorations on the walls. Ice sculptures are also on display throughout the hotel. And the hotel offers northern lights wake up calls.

Dog sledging and snowmobile safaris
