We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon in December 2016, it was an absolutely magical experience! We had a suite in the ice hotel and I would suggest looking into this as the majority of the rooms seemed to be twin singles. Everyone asks how we slept in the cold...the answer layer up and you will be fine!...

Sorrisniva is a bucket list item in itself. A hotel made fully of ice. Your room is of ice, your bed is of ice and that's what you sleep on. Obv, there is reindeer skin and warm sleeping bags to make you comfortable and there is a warm building too. But set on the banks of Alta river, which is...

I was really excited to stay in this hotel as I have stayed in the Icehotel in Kiruna Sweden which is on a larger scale. I was really impressed as soon as I arrived at Sorrisniva. My sister and I were collected from our hotel in Alta and driven the short distance to the icehotel. The main reception is very...

Absolutely Magic. I have never seen anything like this before. It takes 7 weeks to build this ice hotel and every year it has a different theme. This year's theme was the "ice age" and sculptures of mammoths and other animals plus humans. The Ice Hotel had single, double and deluxe rooms. All beds, tables, chairs were all from ice...

It is smaller compared to the glitzy more famous and original ice hotel Jukkasjärvi, Sweden but this one has more of a local flair and an intimate feel. The ice hotel is brand new every year, as the previous year’s hotel melts back into the ground. This year's wonder is the Ice Age. One of the ice sculptor and designer...

The food is here is really excellent so if you are visiting try to stop and have lunch or dinner here. The chapel and carvings are amazing too. We stayed in suite 18, a disaster as there are little lights on the ceiling so you can not make the room dark and whenever you wake up you have lights shining...

We did not stay at the hotel but had the opportunity of visiting the Igloo Hotel. It was really fascinating! When you enter, your eyes will take a while to adapt to the intense blue light but then you will be able to look at the ice sculptures, at the decoration of the four suites, at the church and at...

The outstanding staff at Sorrisniva make your stay as comfortable as they can. From providing cookies to starting the fire at all times of the night, they really catered to our needs. Do not worry about being warm. My wife was a bit narvous about sleeping in 4c and staying warm. We were given 2 sleeping bags zippered together and...
