Snø er en gave fra himmelen.
Kald, stille, ren og vakker.
Velkommen til Snowhotel Kirkenes.
En verden hvor du sover i snø, går på snø og kan kjøre snøscooter eller hundespann på snø. Vi serverer til og med snø i restauranten vår!
Snowhotel Kirkenes ligger 8 km utenfor Kirkenes i nordnorsk villmark.
Siden 2006 har vi viet livene våre til å vise gjestene den sanne følelsen av arktisk villmark.
Her venter 180 huskyer spent på din ankomst.
Reinsdyr beiter bak våre unike hytter.
På bunnen av fjorden vandrer kongekrabbene.
Når nordlyset danser, lyser de opp de snødekte omgivelsene med sine livlige grønne og gule fargetoner.
Ingen av disse naturlige underverkene ville imidlertid ha noen betydning, uten vår viktigste eiendel - de ansatte. De er klare til å gi deg det beste arktiske eventyret.
Når du kommer - forandrer vi deg.
