We couldn't believe the detail in all the carvings and sculptures. You have to spend at least two hours here to fully appreciate the artistry of all the carvers and sculptors. The ice hotel rooms were a great way to showcase the talents of the...More

Booked an excursion to the snow hotel, enjoyed the guided tour, and very impressed with the individual sculptures in each of the suites. I am not sure I would pay to stay here overnight but it was fun to visit. I actually really liked the...More

We came to visit after seeing it was going to be Game of Thrones themed this year! This hotel is absolutely beautiful with all of the carvings so intricately done. The rooms were beautiful and who doesn't love an ice slide?! But honestly, my favorite...More

Wonderful action packed trip to magical snow covered Lapland - a truly memorable experience with reindeers, huskies, snowsleds, skidoos, elves and of course Santa! The Game of Thrones themed ice sculptures were an amazing added bonus in the incredible snow hotel

Stayed here NYE. Friendly staff and well set up to make the freezing stay as pleasant as possible. Had a suite with amazing carvings. Once in a lifetime experience. My partner slept well, me not so much!

This trip included coach travel from our hotel and lunch at the snow village. It was quite expensive but absolutely breathtaking and stunning. The ice carvings were so detailed and beautiful.
