‘Arctic Adventure in an Igloo or Hotel’

The Arctic SnowHotel & Glass Igloos is located in Sinetta, Finland and is split into two areas, the cluster of igloos and the SnowHotel which houses the rooms, suites and restaurants. Ice and snow is a key feature of what makes this hotel so charming. It’s everywhere, cultivated by a temperature level that stays steady between 0 and -5 degrees Celsius. This is no more the case than in the Ice Restaurant and Ice Bar, the latter of which features frozen glasses and tables. Rooms and suites in the SnowHotel are cosy and equipped with a fleece layered sleeping bag. Bathroom facilities are located amongst the main hotel facilities. The glass igloos are incredibly warm, as proven by the heated floor and windows which continually melt away snow. These igloos are facilitated with an aurora alarm, which beeps when there is a sighting of the northern lights during the night. Guests can also book a package which takes the best of both worlds and allows you to stay overnight in a glass igloo and the SnowHotel.



In Our Opinion

‘The landscape of Sinetta is captivatingly beautiful, so it would seem a shame to waste such an opportunity to experience the real outdoors. Here you can go ice fishing, snow sculpting and traverse the ground on snow mobiles.’

The temperature in this restaurant is between 0 and -5c degrees at all times, so wrap up warm.
