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 to name just a few.
Day by day itinerary
Fly from London to Kirkenes via Oslo and transfer to the Kirkenes Snowhotel. Enjoy a welcome drink at the Ice Bar, followed by a delicious three-course dinner, served by a roaring fire. After dinner you'll have the chance to explore the Snowhotel, meet the resident reindeer and, with any luck, catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Then it's off to your Snow Room for an unforgettable night in one of the freshly sculpted boutique ice suites. You’ll be warm and cosy in your thermal clothing and sleeping bag as you drift off to sleep, surrounded by stunning frozen furniture and works of art.
