We stayed the Snow Village from 15th-19th Feb (a couple of weeks ago) and it was amazing, definitely a holiday we will never forget and certainly unique! We booked 1 night in a standard ice room and 3 nights in a teepee (AMAZING) directly through the Snow Village and also 3 of the activities they have on their website. We...

You read about it; You see docus about how it looks like; You talk to people who visited similar places. It all matches when going there yourself. A very nice experience. Something you must have done once in a lifetime. People have to understand that for something special you should be more (or even to much as some people think...

I don't know if I would of wanted to stop here cause of the expense and the cold 0 to -6 but it is most definitely a place to visit. The carvings into the walls are stunning my favourite being the stags head out of ice sticking out of the wall.

Dear K9DPR, Thank you for your feedback. Nice to hear that even if SnowVillage was not the top choice destination for you, the visit was absolutely worth it! The stags head truly catches the eye easily with it's size and shine. Hopefully there is going to be similar master piece for next year's SnowVillage as well! Best of wishes from...

Was absolutely fantastic, only problem was once regular things done, had quite a bit of time free, nice but extremely cold at -25 degrees. Nowhere to accommodate everyone in warm reception, people with babies and tired small children in there, personally wouldn't take children so young .

This was my second trip to the ice village. I think it is lovely, and my two grandchildren had super time visiting the bedroom suites and seeing the pretty carvings. However, the highlight for them was the ice slide. This is much improved since last year. Don't go if you're expecting the more intricate ice carvings and rooms of the...

I have delayed my review as I had hoped to be able to bury the negative feelings I had about our day on December 10th. Unfortunately it still bothers me that we came across an 'elf' with anger issues. It was a woman in charge of huskies. She ushered us along to our sleigh where a second woman questioned if...

Booked this trip for our family. My husband, our 2 daughters and their husbands and our 3 grandchildren age 3, 4 and 5. It cost us £500 each and then on top of that we had to pay for sitting together which we did. Got on the plane with our boarding passes and found someone sitting in one of our...

Firstly I must point out that my wife and I only visited the hotel - we did not stay. Our visit took place during a recent holiday. The sculptures were impressive but no more than I've seen in ice exhibitions in the UK. When we booked our holiday, we did consider a night at the snow hotel but having seen...

Myself and my husband spent one night here recently and to be honest its really difficult to put the experience into words!

We then headed to the Ice Restaurant for...
