Upon your arrival to Kirkenes, we will pick you up, either at the Kirkenes airport, boat harbour, or Thon or Scandic hotel in town. At the Snowhotel, you can check-in at our reception where we will give you all necessary practical information and take care of your luggage. Our restaurant will be open, and it is recommended to order lunch before going out on your first adventure.
At 13:00 our guide will meet you in the lobby of the restaurant to take you on the King crab Safari. After dressing up (you will get a thermal suit, boots, balaclava, helmet and gloves) we drive by snowmobile-pulled sled out on the frozen fjord to fish the king crab We take the catch home with us, prepare the crab, and serve a big and fresh lunch back at the restaurant. The activity finishes around 16:00 which means your cabin will be ready. If you booked the Snowroom, we have a lounge at the restaurant where you can stay and relax until the dinner program starting at 17:30. The dinner program will start with a guided tour of the Snowhotel. During the three-course dinner, we will give a "how-to-sleep-in-the-snowhotel" tutorial for those of you spending your first night in a Snowhotel room. After dinner the icebar will be open.
After waking up from a magical night at the Snowhotel, you are welcome to our breakfast buffet which is served from 08:00AM until 10:00AM at our restaurant. Those of you staying overnight at a Snowroom will be kindly asked to check out of their room before breakfast.
After breakfast you will have time to enjoy our park; cuddle with the huskies and visit the reindeer, have some snowfun outside with our sleds, or go for a snowshoe or ski hike on your own (the equipment is free to borrow).
At 15:00 it is time to meet up at the dog yard for the Husky Experience Dog Sledding tour. The sledding tracks have a distance of approx. 5 km.
