Magic Ice, Svolvaer

3.4
#2 of 7 in Museums in Vagan
A fantasy world of ornate ice sculptures awaits you at Magic Ice. Dramatic LED lighting and music enhance the experience at what claims to be the biggest ice bar in the world. The entire exhibit is made of crystal-clear ice--everything from the tables and chairs to the glasses at the bar. Appropriate for visitors of all ages, this is a great family photo opportunity. Admission includes a warm coat and pair of gloves, as well as a signature frosty cocktail. You can plan Vagan trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Very amazing, these sculptures, frozen in a former fish cold room! Very original! A parenthesis in an unreal universe. Not to be missed... but it is very expensive!

  • Of course, had to stop by here for a night! Do not know what I was expecting, but it was fun to see! Paid 350kr for two inputs, including gloves and robe (should maybe just be missing?). Got a drink in-but the we had to find yourself-it was none other than us in the venue. We tuslet around the 10-15 minutes-and we were through the whole exhibition! Are you bored-go to see, certain non-please feel free to do something else!

  • Fine exhibitions but the venue looks run-down and gjemtbort from the Centre into a corner of the harbour store. Only 1 staff there who speaks English. It costs £ 175. for the entrance fee including 1 welcome drink either with or without alcohol.

  • Awesome place!! If you are on a Hurtigruten Ship, this is a must!! Hand carved sculptures are amazing and staff is friendly. A little pricey to get in but you get one free drink!
  • A unique experience yet disappointing and over priced. There is not much for tourists to do in this town, so this may be your best bet if you are stopping by for only an hour or two. After putting on some cold weather gear you step into a large room several degrees below freezing. They give you a glass of sweet berry wine in an ice cup. Then you are on your own to wander around old, or poorly maintained ice sculptures. Nothing very interesting, or fresh. Many look like they have been melted and refrozen a couple times. Best feature : the ice slide. Worst : the low light makes it hard to see the sculptures - which may be a good thing considering the condition of the art. Definitely not worth visiting a second time.
  • This place is undeniably fun but I also consider it rather overpriced and the artistic content of the ice carvings is fairly low. Many of them look to have been in place for a long time and as such much of the detail has melted/broken such as the mermaids arm in my picture which is severely withered.
  • Fantastic sculptures. Great place
  • It's simply a room with ice sculptures. It's a good experience, just not a good ratio price-benefit.
