Artists from all over the world spend countless hours here chiselling the massive blocks of ice into perfect sculptures. This hotel is located 35 km from Äkäslompolo so is relatively closeby. You go there by bus and enjoy a guided tour of the hotel, the ice restaurant and the bar. Before you go back, you will get a hot drink and a snack in the inn.
You will not be given extra clothing for this excursion so make sure you are well dressed. Rumour has it they never turn on the heat in this hotel.
20 million kilos of snow and 350 000 kilos of crystal clear natural ice are used every year to create the unique Lainio Snow Village.
