Visited in March 2013. Fantastic experience staying over in themed snow room. Warm welcome from staff. Good dinning experience eating local food ( Salmon , reindeer veg, cooked on open fire in wooden restuarant. Alcohol expensive as in all of Norway (about £11 for a single shot) . Spent evening sledging and watching Northern lights which were superb and wonderful.
Slept in snow hotel warm and snug in sleeping bag although room is -5. Morning sauna , shower and continental style breakfast. Then looking at Husky's and Reindeer in grounds.
An excellent romantic treat.
