Snow Village >> design hotels Lapland Finland

Imagine! A night in a super warm sleeping bag at the snow hotel Snow Village in Lapland Finland. This might not be the hotel where you stay for a whole week, but one night is very cool and a unique experience. The furniture in the rooms is made of ice and of course you get all the supplies to make sure you’re not cold. From the hotel there are several activities you can book like a reindeersafari and huskie safaris or a ride with a snow mobile.

A nice cabin where I stayed is “Kultakuru 1” in Pyhä (book it via Pyha.fi). In Salla I stayed at “Pan Village” close to the reindeer park. Can highly recommend it!
