Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, Alta, Norway

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, Alta, Norway

While the ICEHOTEL in Sweden prides itself on being the largest snow hotel. Norway’s Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel has a more intimate atmosphere. Every year, this 30-room designer igloo is built from scratch out of ice and snow and decorated with wonderful ice sculptures. Norwegian Lapland makes an ideal winter break, whether you’re looking for peace in a snowy and serene setting or an action-packed holiay spent on snowmobiles and dogsleds on the hunt for the Northern Lights.
