About
Have unique arctic adventures at Snow Village! Here you will see the breathtaking constructions made of snow and ice. If you are brave enough you may spend a night in the snow suite, have a dinner at the top class ala carte restaurant or enjoy a drink served in ice glass. Or you can just marvel at the magnificent sculpture art all around the area. We are located in Western part of Finnish Lapland, in close proximity of Ylläs and Levi ski-resorts and easily reachable from the international airport of Kittilä. You are very welcome to come around and have an experience of life time!

I’ve visited a few times now, the most recent being in January this year. Different themes every year and the art and sculpture work never fails to amaze me! The rooms are incredible, absolutely love the place. The ice bar is very cool but this year found it to be very small (maybe covid related), nevertheless I didn’t miss out on an ice shot! I definitely recommend paying this place a visit if you’re in Lapland over winter.

We stayed here one night, check in is not whilst 22.00 but you get tour of hotel. You are allocated sleeping bags and pillow. Rooms have no doors and you have to walk to toilet's. You do not take anything in with you and any cloths are placed in the sleeping bag with you, shoes are on their side or upside down.
The rooms are very light, and the mattress not very comfy, thee is a warm room you can go to away from hotel.
The ice bar stops serving at 8pm like everywhere in Finland so due to check in times we missed this.
It is a very strange experience to say the least, the temp is between 0c and -5.
It was one of the bucket list ticked but wouldn't try it again.

Amazing what peaple can make with snow and ice. Do not forget to close your mouth while walking around. It automatically falls open all the time.

The excursion is like an art exhibition made of ice. You can really look at it once. But not an absolute must have.

Wow! What an experience. We paid to enter the ice bar - the walkways, sculptures, ice slide, ice bar - just amazing. Followed by a delicious dinner in the ice restaurant. Make sure you book in advance. This was a once in a lifetime experience. The kids loved it too - had special sausages for dinner. Blankets were available to keep you warm. We visited Christmas Eve - just magical. Thank you

We went here for dinner and what an experience! We had warm clothes so -5 degrees did not mind, I still recommend to dress up warmly. Really nice staff and great (vegetarian) food! Go here - it is an experience!

We visited the snow castle during our stay at Ylläs. It’s only 30 minutes drive. Got to admit that we were a bit sceptical on the quality and level of the handcraft to expect - but the castle really blew our minds off! What a spectacular piece of art and master piece of talented handcraft it is ❤️
Beyond everything the castle is built only in four weeks by around 30 professionals. Hats off.
It’s been a challenging year for the travel business and I can imagine that not building the castle has been an option too to balance the finance. I’m happy they still did it 💪🏽

Absolutely a place worth visiting.

Ps. There’s an ice slide open for grown-ups and an ice bar too 😅

I visit Snow village in winters and the theme was Game of Thrones. Every single sculpture was a piece of art, carved with great precision and delicacy. The also had game of throne's theme music in the background. The snow village also had rooms for accommodation but the temperature was way below the freezing point so I doubt the practicality. While roaming around the ice sculptures, we were so cold that we had to run back to reception and warm ourselves up a little and then go back to explore the rest of the castle. We enjoyed our time thoroughly, hats off to their creative teams for coming up with this idea. Our original plan was to go to Rovaniemi and visit Santa Claus Village because Snow Village is about 170Km away from Rovaniemi and when bus dropped us at the Kittila bus stop, we had to get a taxi for snow village. The change in rides and the journey hours were worth it. My friends who accompanied me on this trip hadn't watched game of thrones so they were not as amused as I was but they admired the sculptures and delicacy too.

We visited Snow Village on our drive from Kittilä airport to Ylläs, and it was definitely worth the it. The art is incredible, I never realised it's possible to to all this with snow and some well placed lights. The site was also much larger than we expected. Well worth the 18€ and the time!
