On Lehtojärvi's lakeshore, this place offers the complete snow-hotel experience and also has a snow restaurant as well as warmer eating choices. Alongside the snow hotel is an array of glass igloos (available from the beginning of December), ideal for aurora-watching. It’s 26km northwest of Rovaniemi; pick-ups can be arranged.

The temperature of the ice-hotel rooms never gets above 5°C, but reindeer furs and sleeping bags keep you warm.

You can visit the complex (adult/child €15/8) even if you’re not a guest.
