Overnight Adventures

As the only of our kind in Norway, we have an open Snowhotel all year round - both for day visits and overnight stays! With the help of technology we have managed to freeze the snow hotel so that it stays frozen all summer long. So now you have the opportunity to experience the winter dream in the middle of summer.
In addition, we have the luxurious Gamme cabins, if you prefer a warm room. In winter, most people first choose a night in the snow hotel, and then 1 or more nights in the old ones - why not try the same in the winter?
Both accommodation in Snowhotel and Gamme cabins * includes breakfast, and a three course dinner.
* Dinner is optional

Adventures

There is a lot to do in Kirkenes, even in the summer! You can of course visit the Snowhotel 365, and get a visit to the dog farm and our reindeer included. It is actually quite possible to spend a whole day in our summer camp in the idyllic Sandnesdalen. In addition, you can drive a dog cart or go on a hike with huskies. If you are more interested in sea adventures, we will give you the best Northern Norway has to offer, King Crab Safari with RIB boat, or you can join in deep sea fishing for cod and halibut.

Our unique Snowhotel restaurant is open and you can enjoy an unforgettable meal, with panoramic views of the fjord and mountains, whilst waiting for the midnight sun.

Package Deals

Hard to choose? Pick one of our packages. We have picked out the best for you, and even included free transport!

 

When the mountain snows is melting back into the fjord, a new world starts to unfold. Brooks starts trickling, trees slowly spring into green, flowers bloom and unique wild berries starts ripening.

The midnight sun is in the sky all day and night, providing light and energy to recharge batteries for dark winter months.  

 

The feeling of northern summer can only be experienced - when standing on top of a mountain breathing in the fresh air, and drinking the best and cleanest water in the world straight from a stream.

 

Snowhotel Kirkenes aims to show you the best arctic adventure, even without snow.

And if we don`t succeed we now even have managed to keep the Snowhotel frozen over summer - as the first snow or icehotel of our kind, in the world. In 2020 it will be open all year, maybe even for overnighters.

Stay close to nature in our wilderness luxury chalets, the Gamme cabins, with reindeer grazing the forest outside. Dine exclusively in our unique farmhouse restaurant, with an unrivaled view to the fjord.

Visit the husky farm and play with 180 huskies and puppies. Find a fourlegged friend to take for a refreshing mountain hike.

Or an exhilarating Husky Wagon ride along the beautiful fjord.

Go for the ultimate arctic summer adventure, King crab fishing by RIB on the Barents sea.

See historic Kirkenes, and visit the world war 2 bomb shelter Andersgrotta. Get an insight into nordic culture and meet the locals through our Kirkenes Homevisit programme.  

When autumn comes in August, the arctic nature explodes in orange, yellow and red. Twilight sets, and the midnight sun gives way to the magic streams of the Northern Lights.  

 

Even though you have been here in winter, you should try summer. Its a different world.
