Snow Village, Kittila

4.4
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Kittila
Visit a winter wonderland at Snow Village--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 Snow Village on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kittila trip site .

    Fantastic was a snow Castle was carried out by the. Was worth a visit. In particular, the apartments were in the viewers mind. Each one had been created in a different atmosphere. The kids liked the Bill mount and to the accompaniment of the most. The only negative came with cocoa, which was purchased on site for kids. Perhaps the site could provide "autenttisempaa" hot chocolate as it is the same machine with the cocoa, which others have to offer. In addition, there is a drink for adults, perhaps you could elaborate also on something of my own, "hile cocoa"

    A very expensive trip for a day but felt it would be priceless to see the look on my grandchildren's faces. Thompson's made the flight fun for the children during the last hour with songs, jokes etc s...  more »

    We are here for 1 night stayed! And what a particular experience. Despite that I have not done, I look back to with pleasure. First you get a guided tour and you going to fine dining. This is good quality! Close after 23:00 the staff everything off and go home! Only the guests are still about. There is a hot room where you can get coffee and tea! Outside is a teepee with a hair. In the ice rooms you sleeping with a thermo sleeping bag.

    The Snow Village is a stunning place which leaves you almost speechless when you first arrive, the ice sculptures and lighting are amazing leaving you feeling like you have stepped into another world. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and I absolutely recommend that if you are ever in the area the Snow Village has to be visited!

    This is a hotel, restaurant and resort in one. But you can come visit just to see the beautiful snow rooms and sculpting. Strongly recommended.

    a good experience, we stayed the night. they give you a very good sleeping bag and you are on top of a mattress, so its actually reasonably comfortable. the lights are left on all night but with the sleeping bag most of your face is covered anyway so it inst that big of an issue. the restaurant actually had some of the best food I've eaten in Lapland (the warm restaurant) all up, it was ok and something different however only something that needs to be done once.

    Incredible place, stunningly beautiful and amazing activities. Unfortunately on our visit they had fallen behind on visits to Santa, resulting in us waiting outside for 50 minutes, our toddler getting far too cold. We also missed some of the activities as a result. Altogether, we had a great trip, but some better communication between the reps at the Snow Village would have bumped it up to 5 stars :-)

    Definitely a spectacle worth visiting, really well made and designed and some fantastic snow sculptures. A fun snow slide for the kids too :)
