Nothing quite prepares you for the glittering sight of a snow hotel. The effort that goes into making a building constructed entirely out of snow and ice is quite incredible and not to be missed.
You can visit a stunning snow hotel in Rovaniemi, Lapland. The Scandinavian Travel Group can arrange for your transfer from the centre of town to the nearby attractions. The following recommended activities are a great way to enjoy the magic of ice and snow on a wonderful winter vacation.
- 1. Arctic Snow Hotel & Castle. This incredible construction has to be seen to be believed. Your tour of the Arctic Snow Hotel and Castle highlights the beautiful rooms carved and chiseled out of snow. The entire place is creatively put together by the skill and dedication of artists, builders and sculptors who share their experience and talent with the many tourists who come to visit. It is also a learning experience. Your knowledgeable guide can tell you all about how the snow hotel is put together and how it retains its ice-cool beauty. It is only a 25-minute transfer from Rovaniemi. You can also enjoy a refreshment in the fabulous Ice Bar where even the glasses are made out of ice. Cool!
- 2. Dinner at the Ice Restaurant. Sightseeing, admiring ice sculptures and exploring the rooms of the snow hotel is hungry work! If you want to treat yourself, dinner at the Arctic Snow Hotel & Castle is the perfect way to end a memorable day. Dinner is a delicious 3-course meal that specialises in Lappish delicacies that are served on ice tables. The temperature inside these snow constructions is around -6° C so be sure to wear layers of warm clothing. Hot drinks are available to beat the chills.
