Full description

Get picked up in the evening from Santa's Hotel and drive for 30 minutes before arriving at the Arctic SnowHotel, which offers an excellent opportunity to view the northern lights. The venue is a complete winter wonderland set in the heart of Lapland's most beautiful natural scenes. Before dinner, your guide will tell you about the construction, operation, and special features of the SnowHotel during a memorable guided tour through the hotel rooms and the Arctic specialities, such as the Snow Sauna. Your guide will also tell you about the northern lights. During the evening, it is also possible to walk around the hotel area on your own and warm up at the Sky Bar, which has a second floor with a glass roof through which you can hopefully spot the auroras. Afterwards, settle in for a lovely fixed dinner in the stylish restaurant.  Later, order a shot from the Ice Bar served in a glass made from ice (at your own expense). While waiting for the northern lights to appear, spend part of the evening in a warm Lappish tepee, where you can sip coffee and tea, and roast some sausages on the open fire. The dinner menu is as follows: Starter:

• Creamy carrot soup, smoked cheese cream, and crispy onion Main course options (please choose one):

• Salmon glow-fried by the open fire, baked potato filled with creme fraiche, dill-tartar sauce, and anis-pickled cabbage-onion salad • Traditional sautéed reindeer, Lappish potato mash, pickled cucumbers, and lingonberry jam • Parsnip puree, sauteed broadbean and leek, cherry tomato salsa, tomato sauce, and anis-pickled cabbage-onion salad (vegan) Dessert:

Superb activity, both visually and culinary. We learn a lot of nice things, especially about the ice hotel and the way it was made and the latter is just magnificent, a work of art! Only point that we would have to note, the activity lasted 5 hours and we found that a little long.

we had dinner in the Kota Restaurant and I must say everything was excellent and plentiful. Perfect ice hotel visit, we were able to visit pretty much all the rooms and have a drink at the bar. There was no barbecue after dinner but honestly we wouldn't have eaten anything else. The icing on the cake opened the sky and a wonderful Aurora borealis appeared.

The best thing was that thinking that it was going to be boring, the experience of visiting the snow hotel was spectacular. The guide, from Cadiz, was wonderful and let us see all the rooms. And even better, dinner and the beauty of the restaurant next door. The food was very good, everything was exquisite and the waitresses were also very good.
