Held during the last week of January, this festival is all about snow sculpting. The tradition began in 1985 as a space-themed snow-sculpture contest to celebrate the launching of a rocket (Viking) from nearby space base Esrange, and now draws artists from all over to create ever more elaborate and beautiful shapes. The festival also features Sami reindeer-sled racing.
