Alta Igloo Hotel is one of the longer running ice chapels. It’s an unusual wedding venue and offers great value for those looking for a low key destination wedding. Your White wedding can include husky sledging, snowmobiling, northern lights trips as well as a night in an ice hotel and your ice chapel wedding ceremony. As with all our packages it can be tailored so let us know your requirements and we will be happy to put something together for you.
If alongside the wedding your priority is to see the Northern Lights, this could be the perfect option for you. The Northern Lights city of Alta has a dry, stable winter climate and a high viewing frequency for the Northern Lights. Sorrisniva is located well outside Alta and there is little light pollution to interfere with viewing the Northern Lights.
Spending the night in an igloo is not as cold as you might think. It is recommended that you should wear woollen underwear, thermal leggings and a top with long arms. A good quality woolly hat is also a good idea because your head will be sticking out of the top of your sleeping bag. Apart from this you will not need to wear much. The hotel’s sleeping bags are designed to cope with temperatures down to -30oC, and the indoor temperature in the mega igloo is around -4 to -7oC, even if the outdoor temperature drops to -35oC.

If you’re wondering what the food is like, Sorrisniva is one of the best places to eat in western Finnmark and the head chef selects his ingredients in accordance with the natural produce available in the area. Fish is the best option during the winter, so freshly prepared cod from the Alta Fjord is a favourite dish. Reindeer meat is available throughout the year, while lamb is best during the autumn.
