Information regarding COVID-19

On a small break, back soon...

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 further notice - hopefully for very short!

We are monitoring the government`s recommendations, terms for travel and the global situation in general, and we hope to be able to re-open in the not too distant future. For now, we are closed for bookings until 01.05.

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. - 30.11 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 new bookings for the period 01.05.20 - 30.11.20 have a cancellation with full refund option until 7 days before arrival date. This applies for bookings with creation date 15.03. and after. 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!
