Each winter the Igloo Hotel appears in the Arctic landscape 20km from the North Norwegian town of Alta. Everything is made from snow and ice - right down to the glasses in the bar. Artists finish off the magical atmosphere with their creations of ice sculptures throughout the hotel. On clear winter nights the Northern Lights can be seen dancing in the night skies.
The following sample itinerary can be shaped to suit you and combined with another honeymoon itinerary. Please just get in touch to find out more. We’ll be happy to help.
Travel to the Arctic North and transfer to your hotel in Alta by private taxi. If you wish we can organise an overnight stopover in Oslo on the way.
Today you’ll have time to explore the Museum as well as go dog-sledding with your guide. The dog-sled safari takes you through the forest and along the Alta River. If you take a trip in the evening, you may spot the Northern Lights.
This morning you’ll leave for a snow shoe trip with your guide. You’ll view animal footprints and stop for a break in the forest clearing for a coffee over the open fire. Return to Alta in the afternoon.
In the evening travel 20km to the Igloo Snow Hotel. Everything at the hotel is made from snow and ice - right down to the glasses in the bar. Artists finish off the magical atmosphere with their creations of ice sculptures throughout the hotel. On clear winter nights the Northern Lights can be seen dancing in the night skies. Enjoy dinner at the Igloo Hotel served in a beautiful wooden building shaped like a Sami lavvo (tent) with an open fireplace. The chef uses local ingredients. See if you can catch your first glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Enjoy a sauna before breakfast before venturing out on snow mobiles into the wilderness. Enjoy the peaceful setting and return to Alta at lunchtime.
In the evening, perhaps visit the Thon Hotel Viva where you can take a dip in the outdoors hot tub and use the wooden sauna. Alternatively take a road trip with your guide to search for the Northern Lights.
Have the day free or choose from a range of activities including cross-country skiing, ice-fishing, Sami family visit and wildlife walks.
