The SnowCastle of Kemi 

The 23rd SnowCastle is open!

Winter and sub zero weather with frost and cold are part of one of the other as the SnowCastle and Sea Lapland. The SnowCastle with its unforgettable experiences rises on the shimmering shores of the Gulf of Bothnia every winter, ready to receive its visitors wholeheartedly into its bosom.

Children and anyone with the spirit of a child may experience the delight and excitement the two original snow-mascots Arttu and Terttu offer at the SnowCastle daily. The most unique experience, to be sure, will enhance your visit while you enjoy a lunch or an à la carte dinner at the SnowRestaurant.

At the SnowChapel within the SnowCastle, where several couples from around the world celebrate their wedding, you enjoy the deep quiet while sitting on the bench, admiring the snow- and ice-sculptured architecture of the Chapel. At night, continuing your adventure, the SnowHotel provides the true arctic experience while you sleep wrapped inside a sleeping-bag especially designed for arctic conditions, in a room with - 5 degree Celsius temperature.
