A four-day break at the Kirkenes Snow Hotel in the wilderness of northern Norway

Journey to the frontier town of Kirkenes in northern Norway where you'll spend four days exploring this stunning winter wilderness on the shores of the Barents Sea near the borders of Finland and Russia.

Along with its beautiful landscapes, this remote corner of Norway is also home to the world's most northerly ice hotel. Just entering its sixth season, Kirkenes Snowhotel has already featured in the top 25 of National Geographic Adventure's 'World's Best New Adventure Travel Trips" and will be your home for all three nights with one night spent in an Snow Room and the following two nights spent in the hotel's new, warm Gamme Cabins.

Along with your stay in one of the world's most unique hotels, you'll also have the chance to indulge in a range of exhilarating optional excursions during your stay, including king crab fishing, a snowmobile adventure and a husky safari top name just a few.

3 nights Kirkenes Snowhotel


Day 1: Kirkenes Snow Hotel

Fly from London to Kirkenes via Oslo with SAS and transfer to the Kirkenes Snowhotel. Enjoy a welcome drink at the Ice Bar, followed by a delicious three-course dinner, served by the open fireplace. After dinner you'll have the chance to explore the Snowhotel, to meet the resident reindeer and, with any luck, catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Then it's off to your spacious Snow Room for a night in a thermal sleeping bag, surrounded by beautiful examples of ice and snow art adorning the walls. The pictures make it look like you're sleeping on ice but although the beds are framed by ice blocks, they have comfortable mattresses with thermal insulation on top.

Stay: Snow Room at Kirkenes Snow Hotel

Dinner included

Days 2-3: Optional excursions

Begin the day with a warming sauna before breakfast, then check in to a Gamme cabin for two nights. These designer cabins are a brand new addition to the Snowhotel and offer private facilities and tall windows made of one-way glass, which is perfect for privacy while leaving the view clear should the Northern Lights appear. The rest of your time is free for optional excursions, such as fishing for king crabs in the icy Barents Sea. With few natural enemies, these red king crabs can grow up to six feet wide and weigh up to 25 pounds. Snowmobile tours and husky safaris are other popular options, both of which are also available as evening excursions in search of the Northern Lights.

Stay: Gamme Cabin at Kirkenes Snowhotel

Breakfast & dinner included

Excursions

King Crab Safari & Lunch - £195 per person

Whatever you catch will be cooked and served for luch back at the fisherman's home.

Husky Safari - £199 per person

Handle your own Husky team as you head through the Arctic wilderness on this exhilarating adventure.
