Sleep in a SNOW OR ICE HOTEL...

A memory for lifetime! Only a 2 hours flight from Oslo and north of the polar circle you find to exotic hotels, which are entirely made of ice and snow: Kirkenes Snowhotel and Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel in Alta. These amazing hotels melt down each spring, and have to be rebuilt every December!

Kirkenes and Alta are both ideally located in the middle of the Northern Lights zone. To enhance the visibility of the Northern Lights, both hotels are located outside the light pollution of the town.
