200km inside the Arctic Circle, which strikes the whole

The LumiLinna SnowCastle in
The first SnowCastle in 1996, was a gift from the UNICEF

makers from the fact that even though snow is a very common
aspect for us Finns, for the majority of the children in the
world it is ever quite a strange, or even an unknown
element, and yet, in itself, utterly interesting: how snow
looks like, tastes like, how it feels, are factors to
fascinate the young and old alike. .

the glacial Lake Balea are used to raise the walls, the snow
gathered across the mountain slopes, is used for fixing the
ice bricks and for finishing the walls. Every year brings a
new story from the Hotel of Ice. Each season another new
