ABOUT SORRISNIVA

Little did we know, when the company was founded on the riverbanks over 20 years ago, how large it would grow. Over these years we have supplied thousands of guests with wonderful nature-based experiences: riverboat excursions, fishing trips, Snowmobile tours and a hotel made of snow and ice. All based on genuine raw materials, and served up with care and pride

Sorrisniva is located about 20 km from Alta in idyllic surroundings on the banks of the Alta River. The company is run by two brothers, Hans Ulrik and Tor Kjetil. They were born on the shores of the Alta River, surrounded by dense fir forest. Their father founded the company in 1989, and when his health failed they left their jobs to run the business. With the Igloo hotel the demand for bigger and better facilities came along, and since 2004 the guests can enjoy a cozy fireplace, sauna, outdoor Jacuzzi and fabulous meals in the service building next door to the Igloo hotel.

ABOUT THE HOTEL

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel is the only one of its kind and it is about 2500 sqm large. It is the worlds most northern Igloo Hotel! The first Igloo Hotel was built in 2000, every year built fresh with a new theme and construction. All exterior and interior is made of snow and ice; rooms, the beds, even the glasses in the bar. The hotel has approximately 30 rooms, suites, ice gallery, and ice-chapel. The hotel is decorated with ice sculptures – beautiful artwork created by talented sculptors. Along with the pure white snow creates a fairytale atmosphere inside.

The service building contains a large restaurant, locker rooms, toilets, shower, sauna, meeting and living room, luggage room and reception.

Every morning from 7:00 am the sauna is heated up for those who want a warm start for the day. The breakfast buffet with local ingredients is served from 8:00-10:00 am.

HOW TO STAY

The temperature inside the Igloo hotel is constant between minus 4 and minus 7 degrees Celsius. Reindeer Leather is a natural sleeping mat and warm sleeping bags that can withstand down to minus 30 degrees makes accommodation comfortable. We recommend our guests to use woolen/thermo underwear and a hat during the night.
