Winter in Kirkenes
Winter in Kirkenes in the north of Norway is a magical time for everyone who loves snow and winter activities, and who are seeking the total winter adventure.
Almost at the northernmost point in Europe, and right by the border of Russia, and Finnish Lapland, Kirkenes is a fascinating melting pot of these neighbor cultures, together with the ingredients from Norway and the indigenous Sami people.
There are few people and lots of nature.
Beautiful, raw and diverse arctic landscapes, with tundra, mountains, dense pine forests and literally thousands of lakes.
The region is blessed with long, cold and stable winters, with lots of snow and lots of cold, in a world where there is less and less of both.
And - the more snow, the more fun, and the colder, the more beautiful.
So we love the snow and the cold, and we think you will too when you have visited us!
Live your dream of winter adventure, as you enter the door of our magical igloo hotel, the Snowhotel. Tick off your bucket list after a cold night`s sleep, and then enjoy a warm night in our luxurious Gamme cabins.
Spend your family vacation with arctic reindeer, huskies and puppies. Go dog sledding, drive a snowmobile for the first time, and go for the ultimate winter holiday activity, king crab fishing on the frozen fjord.
Bring your special one on a magic journey, and maybe make your vows in the snow between white arctic hilltops, under the Northern Lights?
Or take your loved one on a honeymoon to remember, and enjoy a luxurious dinner with fresh local ingredients with a fantastic fjord view in our unique restaurant.
Your adventure begins here.
