Sleeping arrangements

During your stay you will be sleeping on an ice frame bed with a real mattress and in a room that is always around -5 degrees Celsius. To keep you warm we will provide you with equipment during your stay

  • a sleeping bag meant for extreme cold conditions
  • a sleeping bag liner
  • a balaclava to cover your head and part of the face
  • a neck scarf

When you sleep in a sleeping bag it is good to wear nothing more than your thermal underwear which you will bring yourself. From experience we advise you to use woolen underwear. The woolen underwear you can optionally purchase on spot if you have forgot to bring yours. You can keep your other clothing and possessions in a private locker in the warm part of the hotel.

Facilities

Our hotel consists of two parts, a cold and a warm building which are connected. In the warm building you will find all facilities you’d expect from a hotel; restrooms, showers, dressing rooms, reception, bar and lounge. The cold part we leave for you to explore during your stay.

Towels and basic toiletries will be provided.

Snowshoeing

In the evening you will go snowshoeing with one of our experienced guides and other guests. All equipment for this activity is provided by us. For the majority of our season, your own winter clothing might be sufficient. If needed we can provide you with an overall, shoes, socks, mittens and hat. We will lend you a head torch to be able to search for animal tracks during the long Scandinavian nights.

This activity will not be one for sport but to enjoy a nice walk in the beautiful surroundings.

Meals & Drinks

For dinner your guide will cook local food over open fire during the snowshoeing trip. Breakfast will be served in the warm part of the hotel. For overnight guests coffee, tea and water will be available throughout your whole stay. Other (alcoholic) drinks or snacks are available for purchase in the bar and reception.
