The glass is heated so there is no condensation nor any draught. Designed to be suitable also for longer-term occupation, these ingenious 23 m2 igloos are equipped with kitchenettes and bathrooms.

An overnight stay in the SnowHotel is a unique and memorable experience. It includes a guided tour of the Snow Village which itself is an awesome sight.
Its walls are made entirely of snow and beautiful ice sculptures adorn its rooms, courtyards, ice bar, restaurant and Ice Chapel. Guests are provided with high quality arctic thermal sleeping bags, shower and toilet facilities, room wake-up call with hot berry juice and buffet breakfast in a warm log restaurant and a diploma of overnight stay.
The annual construction of the Snow Village begins when the temperature drops about ten degrees below zero which is usually at the end of october or the beginning of november. Approximately 1,5 million kilos of snow and 300 000 kilos of crystal clear, natural ice are used for the construction. The constructors, specialized in using snow and ice as building material, are constantly developing new tools and instruments for snow construction and exploring innovative ways of taking this artform into new levels.
Snow Village is built entirely of snow and ice covering approximately an area of 20 000 square metres. During the winter season there are about 3000 square metres of covered indoor spaces built as a combination of different snow and ice structures. The architectural design and the themes of interior decoration vary from year to year offering always a unique experience. Visitors can find in there for example the biggest ice dome of Europe and an á la carte restaurant with ice carved tables and bar, in addition to amazing snow galleries full of beautifully illuminated ice art.
