Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel

Ice Hotel

The Igloo Hotel was the first of its kind in Norway and the northernmost Igloo Hotel in the world. Situated just a short distance from the city of Alta, high in Arctic Norway, the hotel has a wonderful setting on the banks of the Alta River in a magical winter landscape. The hotel is newly created each winter, built by innovative and professional artists from around the world joining the experienced local team to develop a unique creation based on different themes each season using natural ice and snow. During the day the Igloo Hotel is open for visitors to marvel at the splendor within, but in the evening it is only open for overnight guests. The hotel and facilities are located next to the Arctic Wilderness Lodge.

Sleep Well

Guests can choose between a standard Igloo room with beds made from ice and covered in a mattress and reindeer furs, a larger family room sleeping up to six guests or a themed Suite for two, with ice sculptures and designed beds with a unique theme in each suite. Temperatures stay at a constant -5 degrees, but the well insulated sleeping bags ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. Overnight stays include changing rooms with bathrooms with shower facilities, small lockers, luggage storage area and a morning sauna.

Eat Well

Breakfast, lunch and evening meals are taken at the iconic Lavvu Restaurant, which represents the Sami tent design serving locally sourced and seasonal foods using the best ingredients from Arctic Norway, including smoked salmon, homemade breads, locally picked berries, reindeer, moose, seafood from the Alta River and Norwegian Sea and vegetable from local farms. Dishes can be paired with wine recommendations.
