Lapland Hotels SnowVillage, Kittila

Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Visit a winter wonderland at Lapland Hotels SnowVillage--an entire village made of snow and ice that is constructed anew every winter. A hotel, restaurant, cocktail bar, and a chapel are mainstays of the design and make up the bulk of the village. Long snow corridors lined with ice sculptures connect the rooms of the hotel, which are individually created by artists and include bed frames carved out of ice. If you prefer more traditional lodging, rent a log cabin. Ongoing activities include husky dogsled rides, viewing the site's domesticated reindeer, and snowmobile rental, which allows you to explore the snowy region inside the Arctic Circle. You can also visit for the day and tour the snow structures after paying an entrance fee. The easiest way to reach the village is by arranging a taxi pick-up from the nearby Kittilä airport or the Kolari train station. Alternatively, rent a car and follow the detailed driving directions on the attraction's website. Put Lapland Hotels SnowVillage on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kittila trip site.

  • SnowVillage was absolutely beautiful and impressive also this year! Slide made of ice was great fun both for adults and kids.  more »
  • We visited the snow castle during our stay at Ylläs. It’s only 30 minutes drive. Got to admit that we were a bit sceptical on the quality and level of the handcraft to expect - but the castle really.....  more »

  • Very worthy to go. I went when games of thrones theme was on and the sculptures were amazing.
  • Very original attraction in the middle of the Lapland’s forest. I am not sure whether I will ever spend a night in one of the rooms due to the extreme cold, but guided tour is extremely worthy. I really recommend having a drink in the ice glasses.
  • Truly unique sleeping quarters. We arrived for the night at 1900. Had an hours tour of the snow village. Had a lovely dinner in the ice restaurant (there is a warm one if you want it). Then had the hotel to ourselves to wander. There is a guests area with kitchen, sofas, shower and sauna. Popped outside to see the northern lights and then off to bed. There are mattresses on the bed. The bags are comfort of -2 and limit of -9. You also get a fleece liner. We were not cold in bed and actually slept. Awoken by a warm juice drink and then breakfast. What an amazing unique experience which you will love and remember. The sculptures are truly amazing as well. Staff are lovely and friendly. Lapland highlight for me.
  • Game of thrones themed snow village. Very beautiful carvings inside. Student priced ticked is 10euros.inside is very cold better wear your thermal clothes when visiting. The theme changes every year. This castle will be closed by 21st of April. It is better to hire a vehicle to visit there as it is about 5km off the road.
  • Fantastic experience, a village made of ice. This would only possible during the winter when outside temperature is low. Must go with there with warm outfits. Small bar inside with flavored drinks and a restaurant is available outside with good selection of food.
