5 Days From £1404

Embrace the snowy winter in Norway

Each year a talented team of sculptors set to work to create the most inspired ice structure ever and each year, they surpass all expectations. The Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel at Alta is a striking piece of architecture that figures prominently against Norway’s snow-draped scenery. Set deep in the heart of the untouched wilderness, the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel at Alta is perfectly located for outdoor winter adventures. Husky sledding and snowmobiling are among the popular activities that are available and with a night spent in one of the world’s most famous ice hotels, every moment of this short break is magical.

This region of Norway is a great place to track down the illustrious Northern Lights and when you travel away from the bright lights of towns and cities, their visibility is increased. Explore the enchanting countryside at night time and hopefully you will catch sight of these much talked about phenomena.
