Doze off on a bed of snow and ice at Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel in northern Norway: the coolest hotel of the north. The place is unique in every sense, not just because it’s made of snow and ice but due to the fact that it has to be rebuilt every single year with a new theme. This year will be ‘Arctic Light and Life’ since the hotel is situated on the Alta River, one of the best places to get a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Being in the Arctic is exciting in so many ways with activities such as dogsledding, kicksleds and snowmobile safaris – and staying this far north allows visitors to experience the darkness of winter with only a few hours of blue tinged dusk every day.
