Hotel - a work of art in snow and ice. You will
feel the warmth of the hospitality in the unique
setting of blue light and ice sculptures. Enjoy
a blue drink in a glass made of ice, and let the
silence of the snow create a feeling of peace in
your soul. Few things can compare with the
feeling of standing at the North Cape and
knowing that you are as far north as it is
possible to be on the European mainland.

Barents Sea conceals many delicacies - and one
of the most magnificent and spectacular is the
gigantic king crab. Imagine seeing the divers

See an ever-changing winter landscape as you
cross snow-covered plains on a snowmobile.
Qualified naturalists act as guides for your snow-
mobile safari in Finnmark’s exciting landscape,
where the adventures are literally queuing up
for you to enjoy. At the mountain lodges you can
enjoy a cup of coffee and you will get an insight
into how the people lived along the old traffic
arteries across the plains. You can also enjoy
a cosy visit to a lavvu, listening to good stories
around the fire.

   Beauty of Silence
In Finnmark you can hear the silence
- the beautiful silence. You can take a
walk and admire the blue light, listen to
the crunching of your feet on the snow
or feel the excitement in your stomach
when the Northern Lights flicker across
the sky.
