          We are traveling with a 4 year old child. She loves Frozen and we thought this would be a nice little treat for her. I read that there is an age limit somewhere but I do not know what it is or if it is true? Anyone know?

          Don't think I'd take a four year old here. It's great for adults. Pretty expensive 350 euros a night. Hotel at constant minus 4c. Maybe Lapland more child friendly.

          About $34USD in a taxi. It is actually more expensive in the bus from Snowhotel.

          Agree with all. The SnowHotel would be a waste of $. Probably too young for the husky sled and cold factor.
