The Ice Domes are definitely worth a visit. The works and ice sculptures are incredibly well designed and detailed. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot about Vikings and the Sami culture. In addition, I was very happy about the reindeer behind the house and about the vegetarian choice of food.

It was the most exciting adventure ever. The staff were amazing and the location is breathtaking. I want everyone I know to experience this!
