It is 2000 square meters including 2 suites and it is decoated with numbers of ice sculptures and ice furnishing, and amazing lighting system to enhance the different ice crystals. Beside the bedrooms, Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel contains an ice chapel, ice gallery and ice bar in which the drinks are served in ice glasses.
Every year the theme in Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel is different. For example: in 2004 it was Viking theme, 2005 Norwegian fairytales and 2006 wild animals of the region.
