Snowhotel Kirkenes 🇳🇴

 

Snow is a gift from the sky. Cold, still, pure and beautiful. Welcome to the world of Snowhotel Kirkenes. A world where you sleep in snow, walk on snow and can drive a snowmobile or a dogsled on snow. They even serve snow in their restaurant.

Snowhotel Kirkenes is situated 8 km outside Kirkenes in the secluded wilds of Northern Norway. Since 2006, they have dedicated their lives to show guests the true sense of arctic wilderness. Here, 160 huskies excitedly await their arrival. Reindeer graze behind unique chalets. At the bottom of the fjord, the giant king crabs dwell. When the northern lights dance, they illuminate the snowy surroundings with their vibrant green and yellow hues. However, none of these natural wonders would matter, without their most important asset – their staff, which are ready to give the best arctic adventure.

Holmen Lofoten AS 🇳🇴

 

Holmen Lofoten is a small hotel / restaurant in one of the outermost islands of Lofoten, Moskenesøya. The resort is a cluster of traditional fishing village buildings combined with new built modern architecture.  

Many people lost their primal connection with nature, themselves and their human herd. Holmen Lofoten serves as a safe space where you can log off, reconnect and investigate our natural, mental and social roots and passions. They create the feeling of being home at the edge of the world. 

Family plays a key part in their story. Holmen Lofoten was created by Ingunn Rasmussen. A fisherman’s daughter, her family lived off the land and sea, fishing and foraging through the seasons. The children playing and working along the same quayside you see today.
