Sorrisniva in Norway is a perfect place to spend your wedding day. Get married in the northernmost ice hotel in wintertime or have a memorable wedding celebration under the midnight sun during the summer.
Make your special day even more special with a winter wedding at Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel
It is constructed afresh every year with new theme and sculptures. The ice chapel is approved by the Bishop of Nord-Hålogaland, and the local parish performs marriages and other services here.
The Ice Chapel is integrated into and centrally located within the hotel, but is nevertheless a separate entity clearly demarcated from the rest of the building. It is an intimate room with special acoustics, and like the rest of the hotel it is decorated with very beautiful ice sculptures.
Personal adjustments are possible, in agreement with the pastor. If you would like a wedding march and hymns during the ceremony an organist will be booked for you.
The couple must arrive in Alta no later than the day preceding the wedding so that the pastor can meet them. It is also possible to do a rehearsal in the ice chapel. The marriage ceremony in the chapel is the same one for the Church of Norway, which is a Lutheran denomination, and takes about 20-25 minutes.
Your program in Alta with accommodation and activities can be booked with us. We will help you to find the best solutions for you.
