SnowCastle Resort is open every day of the year! Read more and learn about the all-year-round services.
Since 1996 we have built this incredible SnowCastle every winter (January – April), using only snow and ice from sea water as building material. In an idea that was brought the fun of the snow and cold of the Arctic, SnowCatle has raised with the snowy walls, gorgeous snow sculptures for the furnishings and decorations shining white pathways, leading the visitors to fairytale-like sceneries.
Following that success of SnowCastle, we now continue to contribute to your entertainment with SnowExperience365 within a massive main building which opens throughout the year. Our main new building which is a part of the SnowCastle Resort located by the Bothnian Bay, Kemi promises to bring to you a seasonal experience in your short amazing vacation. We bring our unique activities all the seasons under the same roof together with our trusted partners that will operate their own booths on the main floor. Wellness and sauna services and conference and meeting room facilities will be available on the top floor. We are focusing on the snow & ice experience to our visitors all-year-round. After the snowy winter arrives Spring and the nature around comes alive. We enjoy the long bright days in Summer months, when the sun does not set at all. The colourful nature and autumn auroras are the highlight of fall. Experience the sea, sun, snow and ice in Kemi 365 days of the year. Here you are one with nature yet next to small city services.
Tourists hava a chance sleeping a night in the SnowHotel located in the SnowCastle during the winter time. Put your feet up and chill out in the gorgeously decorated snow rooms – a true arctic adventure. The temperature is always around -5 degrees Celsius but the comfortable bed with a white sheet and lambskin cover, a pillow, a fleece sheet and a sleeping bag designed for Arctic conditions ensures a good night sleep.
On top of everything, Seaside Glass Villas is an ideal choice for nature lovers. Voyagers can experience the sky’s exclusive colors, starry northern sky and possibly the Northern Lights during autumn and winter. A vast open field of frozen sea opens in front of the villas in the winter months. During a spring you can observe the fascinating transformation as nature wakes up after a long winter: the sea melts and birds return to Lapland in large flocks. Enjoy the white night magic of the endless summer days and experience the the beautiful autumn colours and the northern lights
Our famous, award-winning IceRestaurant will move inside the main building. The SnowExperience365 welcomes to winter wonderland every day of the year. Amazing snow and ice sculptures decorate the snowy walls, you can wine and dine by the ice tables and even get married surrounded by ice surroundings in summer.
Our arctic delicacies will also be served in a new Seaview Restaurant Lumihiutale. Both à la carte and buffet group menus are available with modern arctic taste. You will be able to enjoy the midnight sun, autumn colours and even Northern Lights while dining on the sun terrace, open from spring to late autumn.
