We were those crazy people who decided to stay here the night. We had booked this for a night on our honeymoon and after reading reviews were a little apprehensive that we had made a poor choice. On arrival we were taken on a tour of the hotel, and from the minute they take you through the doors into the snow village we were completely blown away, the place is absolutly incredible, a complete work of art. The rooms are all very unique and very creative. After the tour we went to the restaurant. Instantly the smell of food hits you and you can't believe its -5 degrees. The food was very high quality, and the menu varied and cooked to perfection, I spent the whole time in the restaurant with a huge smile in awe of the place. We later made it to our room with our sleeping bags, (which were very warm!) and set down for the night. I awoke a few times but was in awe of the place every time, and to be honest, the cold really isn't much of an issue. We were woken up at the time we requested by a very friendly lady who came with some warm Berry juice, then followed by a lovely buffet breakfast. I would advise to people stopping that this isn't a typical hotel experience. Think of it almost like camping, and as a once in a lifetime experience to sleep somewhere unique. We're glad we stayed the night as the discomfort was humbling and the experience of doing so was so rewarding.

Visited on a TUI trip, family of 4. Its quite expensive considering you’re only there just over an hour. The ice artwork is amazing to see, theres also an ice bar, ice slide, chapel and you can see the rooms in the snow hotel which I wouldn’t want to stay in as its so cold. Glad I’ve been as it was something different but I wouldn’t return.

Search for santa Incredible day. Nothing to complain about at all. Plane journey, included breakfast and a Sunday roast on the return flight We played pass the santa, sung songs, felt santa land on the roof, the air hostesses were fabulous. A really fun flight, I think it's just for the day trips after reading of people who are staying over not having a festive flight, I assume the Daytrip is made special this way. It certainly made me think how fun all flights could be. We wore our Thermals under our clothes on the plane we were not too hot. Although we were provided with all in one suits, I still felt chilly if we stood about for more than 10 minutes, but if we kept moving didn't feel the cold. After leaving the airport it was straight to the clothes centre, very efficient, everything they gave us was a perfect fit, we were then assigned a coach with our own elf, Chilly, he was a big elf, and was proud to tell us he is the biggest Elf in the world, we didn't doubt him. The 25 minute jouney to snow Village was full of facts, and a little bit of singing... Jungle balls, Chilly was the perfect host, also shout out to Pepper who was also a great friendly elf. As we were first off the plane and first changed we were on coach 1, and we were lined up to see Santa at 2pm and have lunch at 3.45. We were taken to the santa stop where we were ferried via sledge to meet the big man.. TUI give each child a special pack on the plane to write their letter though I've seen parents do this bit themselves, when you arrive the elf asks for your letter and when you meet santa he reads from it, I think he struggled as our house rule has always been that santa brings one token gift, so her request for a toy fox and nothing else stumped him a little but he was amazing and definitely the real one ❤️😍 A golden wrapped box was presented to each child before they said goodbye. He promised to check in on her friends and told her to tell them to be good ☑️❤️ Then we had the rest of the day to pick and chose what we wanted to do. We visited the ice Hotel, it's incredible but colder than outside, you couldn't seriously sleep in there, lol well I wouldn't 😂😂❄️ We had a huskie session, we were all together for this, but I had my own sledge for the reindeer as our ten year old was too big to fit in with us both, she went with dad and I enjoyed the ride too. Lunch was free and was very basic. Mash, chips, coleslaw, meatballs, chicken nuggets and a veggie falafel it was a buffet and nice and warm. There was a small gift shop, I spent €100 euros on a Sami poncho, a mug, some fridge magnets and baubles and little ekfy figures. But the selection at the airport was better, although they didn't have sami ponchos so was glad to get that. We then went to the Sami ceremony in the tipi where we learned about reindeer and had our faces smudged with charcoal I really liked this part, and it felt special too. We spent the last half hour having a family snow ball fight. We didn't decorate gingerbread or do any crafts but we did eat gingerbread it was yummy. After reading some dreadful reports before our trip I went with no expectations (someone once told me expectations lead to dissapointment and they are right!!) I can honestly say from start to finish we had the most incredible wonderful day, my daughter was awestruck and hubby really enjoyed it. Would we come back, I think so. Was a day trip worth it, yes it was every single penny and we were ready to go when it was time to get our bus On the way back we received a lapland passport for our daughter (more like a vip card on a lanyard) a reindeer driving licence each, and a certificate for crossing the Arctic circle. Tui also gave every family a special brochure with £100 voucher off your next booking on the return flight. Would I recommend it? Big fat yes. I still can't believe we've been to lapland and back today 😂🔙❄️🎅

We join a day tour to come here. We had a very pleasant visit of Snow Village. Every rooms are difference, this village is a temporary hotel made up of snow and sculpted blocks of ice. As it is constructed from ice and snow and typically have to be rebuilt every year.  Tip1: Temperature inside the village is freezing. So bring hat, gloves, and wear enough clothes and snow boots when you come to visit. Tip2: We joint the tour with Levi Tourist Center. They do not have this tour daily, so better plan ahead.

I’d done Lapland with a friend 5 years ago for a few nights and was desperate to take my niece before she stopped believing. We went in a group, myself, mum, sister & 10 year old niece. We flew from Gatwick on the 16th December 2018. My niece had no idea where we were going-we told her when we got to the airport. Excellent, surprised and so thankful. Her face said it all :) We had a great flight got away on time, the cabin decorated with tinsel, great crew in Christmas jumpers, hats. We had a nice breakfast on flight-as nice as plane food can be! It lines your belly if nothing else! It was festive throughout our captain was brilliant with the kids, telling them the reindeer’s were going to pull the plane along the run way at a high speed to take us off! It was just the little things like that, that just added the extra festive touch. Through the flight the captain came out and met with families and his experience with his kids at Lapland along with doing carols-all given carol sheets and a Christmas quiz! When we landed we were taken across the road in a hanger, it was organised a little busy but not manic how I’ve read some of the reviews on here and being like “hell”...... I guess it’s what your patience or tolerance is like. After jumped on a coach to the location. Roughly half hour. Stunning stunning views it’s like Narinia. We got there and it was overly busy we got on all activities and had food in the canteen-yes this wasn’t amazing or great but at least it’s something to keep you going and the kids. Let’s be honest your not there for a slap up fantastic meal. It is purely from memory chicken nuggets, chips, meat balls, rice, breads and the odd over things. You can go up as much as you like for more. We got a ski mobile ride into the forest to find Santa. This was great but extremely cold with the snow hitting your face so please be prepared. We got to Santa’s cabin and a few other families waiting. There is an elf around a fire pit offering hot berry juice and ginger cookies. It was our turn to meet Santa and it was private and lovely. Not rushed. Spoke with my niece. On the flight she wrote a xmas list and we discreetly passed it to the elf who passed onto Santa-my niece was shocked how he had it! So that’s a nice little tip if you manage to do that. We weren’t rushed at all. Had as many photos as we liked. Then back on the sleigh and continue the rides. We did reindeers, skidoo’s, sleighs, a big hill a lot of the kids love sliding down, huskies. Games of throne sculptures are incredible the craftsmanship to make them. Magical. Oh we also made cookies with elves! Well, the kids iced ones already made! Flight back as great as going out, same crew. Captin let us go in the cockpit before take off and have our pics with him and sit in his seat. Meal back was festive. Overall great day. A lot of people go with extreme expectations remember your there for 3/4 hours on the ground, make the most of it. You get given a map when on the coach. Try and plan where to go first. It is expensive, yes it is -15 degrees your in Lapland!, enjoy it. We got off the coach and the huskies were empty so we went straight on them. We were lucky no one moaned on our coach and felt we all had enough time for it all. No delays and an overall good day. I hope this helps or abit of an insight.
