Kirkenes Snowhotel

By special designed snow-sculpted rooms Kirkenes Snowhotel welcome everyone for an unforgettable hotel experience.

Kirkenes Snowhotel opened for the first time in 2006. Every room in Kirkenes Snowhotel is like a treasure.

How does a room look like?

The lighted ice sculptures give the Snow Hotel a very cosy and special atmosphere. In every room, there are decorations and sculptures made from ice and snow. These beautiful designs are created by artists from the specialist ice-sculpting Chinese city of Harbin.

The rooms are five metres in diameter, and they are equipped with everything needed for a comfortable night. Photos appear to look 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. Thermal bed spreads and sleeping bags will keep you warm at night. 


Different themes

All of our 20 rooms have a different theme from our Arctic culture or nature. The Bøkfjord is 500 metres away. Intricate snow art adorns the walls of each room at Kirkenes Snowhotel. Shared bathroom facilities are located in a nearby service building.

An array of activities can be enjoyed in the surroundings, including skiing, sledging, snowmobiling or Northern Lights safaris. The hotel also features an ice bar, a restaurant and a sauna. For the hotel’s Icebar and sculptures, more than 15 tonnes of ice is used.


It`s easy to reach the ice hotel

Once again the expertise of the Chinese ice artists are used, and every year, we are astonished at their creations and attention to detail. WiFi and parking are free. The hotel is 8.4 km from Kirkenes Hurtigruten Ferry Terminal and 6 km from Kirkenes Airport, Høybuktmoen.
