Kirkenes Snowhotel opened for the first time in 2006, and since then has been giving its guests a wonderful experience in one of Norway’s most beautiful surroundings.

The rooms are five meters in diameter, and they are equipped with everything needed for a comfortable night. The photos may seem like you are sleeping on ice, but that would be too cold and too hard for your back. The beds are framed with ice blocks and the beds have comfortable mattresses with thermal insulation on top. You sleep inside a sleeping bag graded for -35 degrees Celsius. The lighted ice sculptures give the SnowHotel a very cozy and special atmosphere.
