Arctic SnowHotel

Thousands of years ago men wandered in the northern wilderness. Already in those days they knew that Lake Lehtojärvi was a pleasant route to take. They left us a reminder, a moose head, which had decorated their stone-age boat. The Arctic SnowHotel has been built in this very landscape, at the stopping place of ancient travellers. Located near the capital of Lapland, Rovaniemi, this story made out of snow and ice continues from dawn till dusk and into the night, filling up all the senses. Come play, rest, and fall in love with a world of snow beautifully built by man and formed by Lappish nature. Take a day trip or stay overnight – you’ll find yourself in your own element.
