The Igloo Hotel at Sorrisniva is one of the most fascinating days out you can imagine. Built entirely of ice and snow, the hotel has to be re-built each year because it melts around April-May. We visited it in 2014 its 15th year. In the small entrance vestibule one is greeted by two polar bear carvings and an ice chandelier. Inside, the reception area is as large as any modern hotel, and during our visit statues of Viking Kings carved from ice stood like sentries next to the columns of ice holding up the roof. The reception desk is made entirely of ice and a welcome drink of vodka and Blue Curacao is served in small glasses - made from ice. The rooms are comfortable and guests sleep on reindeer furs and in sleeping bags. The average temperature is minus four to minus seen degrees. There is an attractive chapel, a bridal suite (in that order!) and ice chairs in front of fake fires. There is also a small shop. Meals are served in a large circular wooden building (in which the temperature is an average 22 degrees centigrade). Walking, skiing, and snowmobiling are all on the agenda so there is very little likelihood of becoming bored. Absolutely well worth the visit.
