Since then, we have grown towards the snowy clouds, and are now one of the most famous igloo hotels not only in Norway but in the whole world. Our idea was to create something unique and natural. Idyllically placed, with the forest and mountains at our back and the arctic fjord in front.

Sleep safely and warm in complete arctic stillness. 14 dreamlike rooms uniquely carved by master ice sculptors from around the world. You will always find the Nordic touch in our motifs, with inspiration from both Norwegian and Sami folklore, fauna and fairy tales. Even if you shouldn`t get much sleep, you can spend all night marveling at all the details of the snow art and ice sculptures.

With a constant temperature of - 4°, you are in for a cold and magical night. True, many stay the night in the coolest hotel in Kirkenes, because it is a once in lifetime experience. But believe it or not, most people sleep very well there. All you need is a warm and comfortable thermal sleeping bag, and some good, simple tips on how to stay warm, and you will sleep like Snow white.
