Snowhotel Kirkenes, hotel in Kirkenes

Surrounded by the Arctic wilderness, Snowhotel Kirkenes stands as a testament to innovation and adventure, offering an unforgettable experience year-round.

We were one of the first guests at the hotel for the summer season. At one point, we were the only guests! But it didn’t matter to the Snowhotel, we were treated with amazing service and amazing meals just for us! Lunch and dinner were both three course affairs of gourmet food and the staff was friendly and, helpful. The Gammi cabins are beautiful and a comfortable and unique experience.

    Found this to be a much more interesting town than I expected. Driver of airport bus was excellent telling us about various things to do, which was great as we had limited time. His helpful advice meant we were able to do a tour of Andersgrotto (wartime underground bunker) and learn about what the citizens went through being caught up in the battle between the Soviet Union and the occupying Germans. We also enjoyed the museum, a tour through the amazing snow hotel, feeding reindeer and seeing the huskies, as well as wandering the town centre and seeing the excellent display of photos in the square. However, we were between seasons for some of the other tours that would normally be available so it would certainly be possible to need a few more days to do some of those other things at another time (eg, northern lights in the winter months and dog sledding, plus some other excursions available only in the summer months).

    Thanasis, my host, made the trip special.

    Thanasis, my host, made the trip special. He could not have been more helpful. The accommodation was super and was everything as described. The town itself had everything needed and the township was great to walk around. A tip for those arriving by plane...book a taxi to Kirkenes in advance. It was a blizzard when I arrived and all the taxis were taken. It was freezing and I was lucky that a driver called a taxi. for me or I might still be there. Thanasis drove me back to the airport upon my departure as the bus wasn't timed to coordinate with the plane departure time. An excellent host! I missed the Northern Lights but Thanasis sent me a photograph of them the following night. My timing was off by one night.

    Kirkenes is a small pleasant town with few sights but the Grenselandmuseet is well worth a visit. The location is recommended for viewing the Northern Lights but it was too cloudy during our visit (Nov). There are a few restaurants in the centre, the most popular being the Ritz with very good pizzas.

    It is the area around Kirkenes that is the main attraction.

    It is the area around Kirkenes that is the main attraction. We travelled to Grensa Jacobselv beach which was beautiful and sunny on the day we visited, same for Ovre Pasvik National Park which was breathtakinlgy beautiful. Both are quite a drive from Kirkenes though and we chose the town to learn about the history from WWII, the hotel had a pool (although it was not operational!!) and as the airport was there. Next time we would definitely go for a cabin in the woods and see the reindeer up close. In town we ate at Surf n Turf which was decent, waiter had a sense of humour and good was quite good. Nothing spectacular but good enough, depends what you like. The other place we ate in town was Ritz, which was an excellent pizza and we would recommend it for the food but was pricey compared to other towns in Norway; little other choice though. Most other places were closed we assumed due to no tourists, so not worth it or maybe worse closed down following Covid downturn. The central part of town had the feeling of needing a boost from its Covid slumber. We loved the area though and will come back, armed with better knowledge than first-timers.

    We stayed 5 days, much longer than most visitors because we wanted to maximize the chance to see the northern lights. As it turned out, 4 nights were cloudy and on the last night, the skies cleared a little and being at Sollia and having trekked into the countryside up the hill from the lodge, gave us the best chance to view the lights, just a 10 minute walk from our room. There were enough activities in kirkenes to keep us amused for 5 days - dog sledding with Birk's (here you're the driver of the sleds), king crab expedition and you drive yourself there on the frozen Barents Sea, the Andersgrotta the underground bunker was very interesting, hiking in the Taiga, and we had to have our daily coffee at Johnny's Lunch Cafe in Kirkenes. Johnny is an Italian and makes coffee the only acceptable way with an Italian Expresso machine. Thank heavens for Johnny's! Coffee in Kirkenes mostly comes out of cafeteria type/press the button coffee.

    Perfect located, close to the center and different attractions in the city. Very friendly and helpful host. Apartment is spacious, rooms are big enough and clean. The breakfast was left in the frige, bread, fruits, eggs, juice, hams, cheese. really generous and helpful. the host Roar answers the message very fast every time I asked. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Kirkenes. Highly recommended.

    This is a very special place. In winter, you have the ice rooms and lots of snow activities. But now, in the golden autumn, all is different. You have your own place under the trees, all is calm, you get excellent food, and when you step out your door in the night you see the Northern lights.

    Nice hotel for a reasonable price for 1 night before the flight. It also good that they have a kitchen and coffee machine. But the coffee machine wasn't working on the 2nd day. Thanks for the early check-in.

    It's probably the best hotel option in downtown Kirkenes. Located right at the seafront, perfect spot for aurora sighting. Room was cosy, as per photo.
