Arctic Snow Hotel

The Arctic Snow Hotel, near the Finnish Lapland centre of Rovaniemi, is, in our humble opinion, the best accommodation in the vicinity of the town. This is probably less of a family-friendly place than many of our other Lapland options, but great for couples looking to experience the magic of Lapland.

Accommodation is in igloo rooms within the SnowHotel itself, in sleeping bags on reindeer skin covered beds, or in the 15 new Glass Igloos with en suite bathrooms, designed for night-time Northern Lights spotting.

The Lumikartano main log building houses the washrooms and loos for the ice accommodation, and also the main restaurant, but there is an ice restaurant (and an ice bar) as well, and a traditional Sami-style kota hut (try the blazed salmon) on the lakeside beside one of the many snowmobile routes in the area. This being Finland the edge of the lake is also home to a sauna complex, and other activities on offer include snowshoeing, ice sculpting and ice fishing.
