Snowman World is in Santa Claus Village, eight kilometres north of Rovaniemi city centre. We are located just under a minute’s walk from Santa Claus Office.
Snowman World Winter Zone opens on the first week of December and closes at the end of March (subject to change due to weather conditions). The entrance fee is 25 € / person (children under three years free of charge).
There’s no need to book in advance - tickets are available from Snowman World reception during opening hours. Please see opening hours here.
The temperature inside the igloo room is just below zero degrees Celsius, even if outside temperatures sometimes drop as far as -30. Not to worry – all guests will be equipped with a sleeping bag designed for extreme conditions guaranteed to keep your mind and body warm throughout the night. We recommend only one night stays in the Igloo Hotel.
A night in the Igloo Hotel is a safe and wonderful experience for kids, too. However, we don’t recommend the igloo stay for small children (under five years). It is also very important that parents understand what kind of accommodation is in question as they are fully responsible for their children. The best choice for small (and big) children is an apartment in Glass Resort with private sauna and outdoor hot spa.
No, they don’t, but the main building, right next to the Igloo Hotel, houses shared bathroom facilities and a luggage room as well as Restaurant Ensilumi.
Glass Resort check-in time 15:00, check-out 11:00
Igloo Hotel check-in time 18:00, check-out 10:00
If you arrive before check-in time, you can store your luggage in the luggage room. We will inform you when your room is ready. You can also store your luggage for a few hours after check-out if needed.
If you arrive late, no problem, we’ll be waiting for you in the reception which is open 24 hours. However, it’s useful to inform the reception your estimated time of arrival in advance.
We strongly recommend you bring warm winter clothing including thermal base layer, warm midlayer, winter jacket, trousers and winter boots. A warm hat, thermal gloves and scarf are essential here on the Arctic Circle!
Your room is built out of snow and ice, and if you bring your bags inside, they will get cold and wet during the night. We recommend leaving all your luggage in our luggage room – they’ll be safe in a locker.

The Aurora season starts in late August and goes on until early April. This natural phenomenon is impossible to predict due to it being subject to weather conditions. Seeing the Northern Lights requires clear skies and a dark viewing spot away from artificial light. Snowman World offers Aurora hunting experiences.
The maximum capacity of a Glass Resort apartment is 2+2 persons. Each apartment has one double bed (160 cm) on the loft and one sofabed (160 cm) for two in the living area (extra fee applies). There is no interconnecting door between apartments.
