Information regarding COVID-19

On a small break, back soon...

Updated 14.05.2020.

Snowhotel Kirkenes temporarily closed

As we can`t welcome any guests at the time being, Snowhotel Kirkenes has decided to temporarily close activities, accommodation and restaurant services from 17.03.20 until 20.06.2020.

We are very happy to announce the we are open from June 20th! This summer it will mostly be Norwegians that are able to visit us, but we hope and trust that the borders will gradually open so others also can enjoy the north!

Do you have a booking with us that has been disrupted?

Guests that didn`t have the chance to come to the north this season due to corona situation will have the chance to rebook for coming winter season or summer. Please contact us at and we will help you out. Please have some patience as we are not at full capacity at the moment. 

Terms of booking for period 01.05. - 31.12 updated

We understand that people are more cautious to travel at the moment - even several months ahead. Although we expect to open again already in summer, we want to offer more flexible terms for our guests. So all bookings for the period 01.05.20 - 31.12.20 have a cancellation with full refund option until 2 days before arrival date. Please read full terms here.


Did you know that Corona actually means the halo of light encircling the sun? Like we see on a bright arctic winter day here in Kirkenes. We choose to see that as a sign that there is a bright and promising horizon behind the clouds.

We are taking an early spring break now, while we are preparing for a great summer and next winter season in Kirkenes.

And PSST! we are still here for you if you have any questions for us.


See you soon, and meanwhile the Snowhotel will stay frozen and you will find all future arctic adventures here at 💙❄️

The only way is up - go North!
