Yes, the prices are steep but you'll remember the occasion for life. And bear in mind that 25 tonnes of ice and 15,000 cu metres of snow are shifted each winter to build this ephemeral structure. For dinner, guests cook reindeer sausages over an open fire, then enjoy a warming main course of baked salmon.

And what's the experience like? Well, it's high on novelty value and something we'd definitely recommend trying once, but once is enough.

If it's all just too cold for you, try their beautifully designed (and much warmer) Gamme cabins (double, half-board from 2700kr).
