  • Fun atmosphere. Good ice sculptures - especially two men in rowing boat. Wine served in ice glasses and reindeer skins on the seats at the bar all added to the fun. But too cold to stay for long thoug...  more »
  • We looked forward to doing an ice bar on our trip to Norway, but timing didn't work out in Oslo or Bergen, so when our Hurtigruten cruise stopped in Svolvær, we walked over to check it out. It's very ...  more »
  • We weren't sure what to expect from the magic ice bar - we went along early in the evening and it wasn't too busy. The sculptures are lovely and the staff very friendly but the range is quite limited ...  more »

  • Cold and shilli. Great experience if you havent tried it. But, not a place you hang around for many hours. :)
  • Nice and special place with beautiful ice sculptures, would not stay there for several hours though
  • Nice to see but a bit too expensive.
  • Well worth the visit.
  • Strange as this may seem, this was one of those attractions that is so much better than it first seems. We were on the Hertigruten, we got into Svolvaer around 9pm, there's not much around, but there was Magic Ice. You follow the signs (white painted on the ground), you get to what can only be described as a dodgy looking warehouse - and that is where it all changes. A wonderful welcome, prices not too bad (alcohol is very expensive everywhere in Norway - by the time we got here we were used to it!). The sculptures were very good, wide ranging (not just a fish and a fishing boat), and impressive. Plus the ice bar (OK, maybe I am too impressed that my "glass" was ice but I'm old'ish!!!). Walked back to the ship very glad we had done this.
