Snow Village

Every November in Finland, the super cool Lainio Snow Village and SnowHotel (featured in the James Bond film Die Another Day) is created. Approx 1,000 truck loads of snow are used to create the Snow Village covering 20,000 square metres. The Snow Village is an arctic adventure offering a large ice hotel with an ice restaurant and ice bar, along with activities such as an ice maze and snow slides.




Opened in 2000, this ice hotel's accommodation consists of 20 igloo bedrooms and 7 fancy ice suites. Every year the Snow Village is designed different but always a magical experience combining ice artistry, handicraft and breathtaking constructions made of snow.




Snow Village Location
Found in the western part of Finnish Lapland, the location of the Snow Hotel is near the ski resorts Ylläs and Levi, about 150 kilometers north of Rovaniemi, Finland.

Most guests come to the town of Ylläsjärvi by flying to Rovaniemi airport or flying to Kittila airport (the latter being just 25 minutes away from the Snow Hotel).



Staying Overnight in the SnowHotel
Pack yourself tightly into your sleeping bag during a night at the Snow Hotel. There are approximately 30 rooms, all made of ice and snow. Individually decorated suites with different themes are also available.



The temperature in the Snow Hotel ranges from 0 to -5 degrees Celsius (23-32 degrees Fahrenheit) depending on the Scandinavian weather outside. However, there is a heated area where hotel guests can enjoy warm showers and a sauna, or warm up in the group room in front of the fireplace and TVs.

Ice Bar
The family-owned Snow Hotel also has Europe's largest Ice Bar where you can meet others in a unique bar are with an otherworldly atmosphere, and drink from glasses made of ice. I can assure you, just seeing this bar is worth a visit to the Snow Village.







Snow Village Surrounding Area
Leave the hotel and you find prettily illuminated ice sculptures to enjoy in the "park". Active and younger guests mingle at the ice maze and the big snow slide for some winter fun. Nearby, there is a sparkling white Ice Chapel with detailed ice sculpting that's definitely worth seeing.





Weddings in the Ice Chapel
For wedding couples, Snow Village offers remarkable settings for an unforgettable day of ceremony and celebration. To start with couples can choose between an ice chapel with furnishings made of ice and a traditional, cosy wooden chapel.
