The lodge is lovely. And the Igloo Hotel amazing. The ice sculptures are so intricate, the bar and drink a perfect end. What a place for a wedding! And they rebuild it each year. The food in the restaurant was excellent too.
We stayed a night at the Igloo Hotel. The hotel is beautifully crafted and the surroundings are very nice. The hotel is lacking it’s premium service that it is advertising with. The staff is just doing its job and nothing more than that. There is no welcoming feeling given by the staff, a lock of enthusiasm and a lack of real hospitality management. If you advertise being a Premium Arctic Wilderness Destination and charge premium prices you should go above and beyond the guest expectations by delivering fantastic and above all warm and welcoming service, which is just not being done. Besides this having 3 common male showers for 24 Igloo Hotel rooms is definitely not enough. And why common showers with no privacy at all? Once again, charging premium pricing and advertising as a Premium Arctic Wilderness Destination means that you will need to deliver premium service and facilities. To sum up: a beautiful location and Igloo Hotel with staff being uninterested and inexperienced with a lack of management who trains and enthuse the staff on how to deliver a true once in a lifetime hospitality experience. Skip this one, there are better ice hotel options around.…
We stayed here for one night in the iglo hotel. A wonderful experience that you should have at least once. The iglo hotel itself is a very charming place and in the main building you will have all facilities and comfort you need. Lots of activities available from the hotel. Friendly and helpful staff.
We spent a night in the Thor suite in early February, and it was a highlight of our trip to northern Norway. The snow carvings are impressive, and the lighting design inside the ice was beautifully done- the whole igloo has a really cool (ha) atmosphere. As someone who is always cold, I expected to be chilly during the night, but wasn't at all- it was quite cozy! You get two arctic sleeping bags each (rated to -30°C), and are on top of a pile of reindeer skins, so you stay nice and warm. The snow absorbs almost all noise, so it was really silent and peaceful inside- we ended up having a top notch sleep. In the morning, there is a sauna to warm up in. This is followed by a delicious breakfast next to a really gorgeous fireplace in the main building (which also features unique construction, this time of wood). There are also outdoor hot tubs with great views of the surrounding mountains. The whole place has a really friendly, comfortable vibe- upscale but cozy. Highly recommended, and well worth a visit!…
We visited the ice hotel late December. It was a beautiful experience, well worth the price. This year the theme is vikings, and the carvings are just amazing. We considered sleeping there, but ended up somewhere else. The suites are really beautiful and well designed. The regular rooms are not really worth the price. There is a small chapel, an ice bar where you can buy a drink and drink it from ice-cups. The most stunning was the lighting that really enhanced the experience and gave life to the whole experience. This was a WOW- experience!
Visited at end of February, the ice carvings are stunning, the rooms icy cold, well worth a visit as a once in a lifetime experience. Only there a few months of the year, co coincide with a husky sled ride and tour. Wrap up warm and enjoy a blue vodka at the bar
Visited here as part of a Cruise tour off the P&O ship Aurora. A joint visit to coincide with Snowmobiling. Note though that this was just a visit! Interesting hotel with ice sculptures. We received a nice talk from the guide/owner. Beautiful inside as far as the lighting and bedrooms go. The bedrooms looked 'comfortable' with their Reindeer skins. Not sure if it would be for us though. There was an ice Bar where we were given a blue vodka drink in an ice glass. It was just an hour long visit but it did give an insight into the hotel.
on arrival we were given a tour of the property the unique surroundings and the igloo hotel bar which is just amazing. The room was amazing nice warm reindeer skins and very warm sleeping bags. there was a very comfy warm lounge to relax in after dinner and before bed. The dining experience was very special. Fine Dining to the max two of my courses were served on a block of ice!!! made all the more special by our waitress Camilla who attended to every detail explaining our entrees and where they were sourced from locally. Overall a remarkable experience. Top of my Bucket List!!!!!
This igloo is way too cool and not as cold as you would expect. On arrival you are taken on a short tour of the property from the main lodge. Snow shoes are available as well as dog and reindeer sleds. A very pleasant evening was provided with options for several Norwegian specialty foods. The high light is the igloo itself which is rebuilt every years in December and melts in April. You can choose the tour or stay overnight. When many people are present a slight fog or mist develops. This just makes great atmosphere to see the many snow and ice sculptures which include full sized altars, characters from children’s storie (Billy Goat Gruff and bridge) and mythological creature. Your personal igloo will have a bed made of ice covered with animal skins so you and/or your clothes will not freeze to it. Sleeping bags are also provided which are quite warm. It was a very comfy experience followed by a great breakfast. Would do it again in a flash!…
Sarrisniva Igloo Hotel . We just visited this hotel last week. I must say it was one of our highlights for the Norway trip. it is so immaculate. precisely carved and built .there are 22-23 bedrooms ,a bar. we were told that people rent it out for weddings and special occasions . the only problem which we were told is that the bathroom is outside the hotel.we did not stay in night but we had a tour booked to go and visit this place.
