Lainio Ice Village, comprises of hotel bedrooms,suites,restaurant,bar and chapel. Maze of corridoors and a kids Ice Slide. The suites are themed everything is carved from ice as is the whole biulding made from ice and snow. It's a must to visit , I don't know about staying there! It must be a magical place for a wedding.

We stayed for one night in an ice suite, the room was like being inside of an igloo. The bed consisted of a mattress inserted into a ice bed frame. There was a carving of a large clown on the wall. The room has two areas of rooms, there was an ice chapel for weddings. There were two restaurants off... More

We were a group of 18 colleagues and partners on a 4 day trip and we spent 1 night there which seems to be the average stay according to the staff. Upon arrival, you receive a small tour including an exact explanation about sleeping at - 5° Celsius, rather funny and certainly helpful. They also show you where you can... More

We stayed overnight during our recent visit and it was excellent! I did feel slightly cheated by the clown room after having seen some others. (If you want a room with decorations & carvings you have to pay for a suite) We are in the ice restaurant which was lovely if a little pricey (but the hotel is made of... More

Travelled to the Snow Hotel for a long weekend. Stayed in a log cabin 'Teepee' for 2 nights, then 1 night in a room in the Ice Hotel. An amazing experience which can not be matched. The temperature was -5, but in nice warm sleeping bags lying on a bed made from ice, it was not so bad. Plenty of... More

We didn't stay the night, but went on an evening trip to visit the hotel, and I'm so glad we did, because I doubt we will ever see such an amazing place again. The hotel is built entirely of ice and maintains a steady -5 degrees inside, so make sure you're well wrapped up when visiting. The bedroom suites have... More
