  • We had a very nice experience here. First, a very good and nice King crab safari. Then a quick and good presentation and display of snow hotel. Very nice and good presentation of dogs and puppies. Then we were served a delicious King crab dinner in great facilities. The dinner was the absolute highlight. King crab tasted simply quite exquisite, and it came to refill on the feast.

  • The entire snow hotel experience was amazing - start to finish! From the welcome at the Gabba house, to the dinner before sleeping and the snow hotel room itself. Staff are all very friendly and helpful and the entire area is beautiful. You won't regret trying this out - whether you stay in the snow hotel as we did (the sleeping bags are indeed very warm!) Or the cabins they have it's an experience you won't forget!
  • We didn't stop for the night at the hotel, just had a look around. It was very impressive with beautiful ice carvings on the walls. Each bedroom was personalised and while we only saw a couple this was clearly done to the highest level. Would definitely look to stay there in the future.
  • All the staff can't do enough for you and although it is expensive your breakfast and dinner are included and the prices in the Gabba café are reasonable for lunch (by Norway standard). There is plenty of stuff to do that doesn't cost anything extra like see the huskies, feed the reindeer and there are sledges and snow shoes about to take and use. Spent last night in the snow hotel, surprisingly comfortable and not as cold as I thought I might be, the light bothered me as they can't be turned off so bring an eye mask if you're sensitive to that. We travelled as a large group 7 adults and 3 children (14, 7 and 4) and we were so well looked after.
  • As long as you know what you're in for, this is an amazing experience. The temperature is a constant -4°C and the entire room is made of snow, but the artist carvings in the rooms and the ice bar are unbelievable.
  • It was definitely an experience, sleeping in sleeping bag in a place made entirely of ice kept at -4°!! Be prepared for the cold outside though
