Restaurant Experience


Taste the superiority of the arctic​

Enjoy unique atmosphere and arctic cuisine in secluded wilderness.

Summer or winter, an experience of wild luxury awaits you at the most special restaurant in Kirkenes - Snowhotel "Låven" restaurant,

Eating at the Snowhotel Kirkenes Restaurant is more than an experience for your palate.

The reindeer in the yard, greeting you as you enter.

200 huskies howling their welcome as the northern lights flickers across the sky.

Walking through the magnificent Snowhotel and seeing the unreal ice sculptures and carvings.

The view to the fjord from Høyloftet restaurant, and the crackling fire in Gabba.

The Snowhotel Kirkenes Restaurant concept is based on short-travelled, pure local ingredients, such as reindeer, lamb, arctic fish and king crab.

We strive to always add an extra touch to our dishes. ​

Like the wild herbs that we picked and dried ourselves. ​

Our homemade jelly from blackcurrant and rowan berries, and the cheese from a local farmer.

That`s why we say you not only get a meal.​ You get a story.
