We took a taxi from Kierkenes to the Snowhotel, I don’t recall the cost but it wasn’t very much and we had a nice conversation with the cabbie.

Don't think I'd take a four year old here. It's great for adults. Pretty expensive 350 euros a night. Hotel at constant minus 4c. Maybe Lapland more child friendly.
