ARTICO ICE BAR es una experiencia unica. No somos una atraccion turistica ni un lugar fresquito para tomar algo o uno de esos locales hechos con hielo de congelador en lugares impensables de Europa.MOSTRAMOS EL HIELO DEL ARTICO EN EL ARTICO. En primavera -verano, cuando no hay nieve ni hielo en el paisaje, le mostramos lo que la naturaleza ha hecho durante los frios meses de invierno. Trozos de los lagos helados de Laponia , nieve de sus montanas , la sensacion del frio inviernal y la noche polar en pleno estio. El conocimiento de la naturaleza a traves del hielo en estado puro. Podra observar el hielo natural, tocarlo y sentirlo plenamente. Porque tocar es sentir.ARTICO ICE BAR BAR is a unique experience. We are neither a tourist attraction nor a nippy place to have a break or one of those business made with freezer ice in unthinkable places in Europe.WE SHOW ARCTIC ICE IN THE ARCTIC. In spring-summer, when there is neither snow nor ice in the landscape, we show you what nature has made during the cold months of winter. Pieces of the frozen lakes of Sapmi, snow from its mountains, the feeling of winter cold and the polar night in summer. You will see the knowledge of nature through ice in pure state. You will be able to fully watch natural ice, touch it and feel it. Because touching is feeling.

If you would like to know how it feels to live in a refrigerator, this is the place for you. For 125 Krone or about $14.50 you gain entry wearing an insulated jacket with hood. You do get a free beverage, not a hot chocolate, cold juice or booze. The time spent in the ice box is up to you.... More

Definitely an interesting place with great lighting and ice effects and it clearly takes a big effort to build but for the price i see no reason at all why adults could not be given a couple of decent schnapps/aquavit instead of kiddie drinks .

Thank you for your coments, we apreciate them. We dont serve alcohol as we tell our customers before pay the entrance. Our main priority is the Ice, drinks are non alcoholic but very taste. We like that you apreciate the beauty of the Ice and hard work. Welcome back! More

What a fun attraction! They provide you with a warm parka; just make sure you have non-slip foot ware. Your entrance fee includes a non-alcoholic beverage.

What better place to visit in the Arctic Circle than the Artico Icebar in Honningsvag, Norway. After donning a provided well-insulated parka, we entered the icebar with it's thick slabs of ice that are formed to make a circular bar, table, seats and even an igloo. How fun to drink out of thickly formed shot glasses made of ice. The... More

We had a great time in the Ice Bar. You actually need to go in the gift shop to buy your tickets and enter the Ice Bar. We had a lot of fun inside the Ice Bar taking photos on the sleigh, in the Igloo, behind bar or just sat down in the ice seats round the Ice table. They... More

We visited Honningsvag in summer so to have the cool experience we visited the Icebar. There is a cheap gift shop (by Norwegian standards) with lovely items and a Christmas shop upstairs. The boys enjoyed the Icebar. Climbing in the igloo, the ice cups and photos behind the sled.
