I was fortunate to visit Norway recently on a cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes which culminated in a night in the Snow Hotel in Kirkenes.
What a fab place I loved it!
I guess it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and some of my friends thought I was completely mad! But I am so glad I did it.
Your bed’s surround is constructed of ice but the bed is actually not! (Phew!)
The temperature is -4°C but when it is -20°C outside it actually feels quite warm – well for a while! It is quite random sleeping in your bobble hat and many layers of clothes but it is definitely required to keep you cosy(ish).
Each room is carved in different themes and it is like sleeping in your own igloo! Take a look here: http://kirkenessnowhotel.com/
