The guided tour is really well organized. The guide is eager to give all the information not just for the castle also for further questions regarding Finland.

Wow, cool place to visit, beautiful ice carvings, great views from top of castle. Nice food, staff very helpful and professional. Can get very cold, so plenty of layers during winter season.

We stopped in Kemi on our way to Helsinki from Lapland. It made for a nice one hour stop to explore the snow castle. Didn't make us want to stay there, but it was cool to see! Very cold inside though!

this is a weird place-not sure I would have chosen it-but it was part of a tour and something out of the ordinary for sure.
