Awesome adventures, romantic moments, tasty food, unforgettable nights under the dancing Northern Lights - all available at Snowhotel Kirkenes on the top of Norway, just 60 km from the russian border.
Definetly stay more than a night, because they also offer a lot of great activities in this beautiful landscape.
Hundreds of dogs are living in the dog yard right infront of the hotel, all of them accessible, lovely and just waiting for you to come around and hug them or to pull you through the snowy Winter Wonderland on a dog sled.
I can recommend to stay in a snow room for one night and spend a few more nights in the extraordinary comfortable Gamme Northern Lights Cabins before or after. The scandinavian inspired design of the cabins looks just mindblowing. The big panoramic windows allow you the best possible view at all times. Even when the Northern Lights show up, you can theoratically stay in your warm and comfy cabin, without missing anything.
Make sure you prebook some great activities with your stay, because all of them are limited and can be sold out quickly. I personally love the Husky Safari and the King Crab Safari, , but I am pretty sure that the Snowmobile Safari or the Icefishing activities are just as good.
I`ve just visited the new Snowhotel 2018/19 and I think it`s the best Snowhotel they`ve ever created. They`ve also added ten new Gamme Northern Lights Cabins and more departures for all activties, which gives you even more flexibility to plan your stay.
Please note, that the Snowhotel will be open during the summer months (for the first time ever) this year! If you need to cool down during the hot summer months or visit Kirkenes for other reasons, you can now visit the Snowhotel or sleep in it even when it`s warm outside.
