Sorrisniva er en innovatør innen reiselivsnæringen, og nå er siste innovasjon startet. Sorrisniva vil bygge en Arktisk villmarks Lodge for «high end» markedet. Arctic Wilderness Lodge vil være noen helt nytt og eksepsjonelt i landsdelen. Det satses på gjestene som vil oppleve noe ekstra, et nytt og enestående opplevelsestilbud.
Her vil du kunne oppleve en unik utsikt over Altaelva som renner 10 meter fra suitene. Om sommeren kan man se laksen hoppe og se ørna i naturskjønne omgivelser fly forbi. Vinterstid og i nordlyssesongen kan du ligge i sengen og oppleve nordlyset som blafrer over himmelen gjennom takvinduet som gir fantastisk utsikt mot himmelen på en mørk natt.
“I løpet av de siste 40 årene har vi kontinuerlig utviklet og utvidet det Sorrisniva tilbyr våre gjester. Vi er glade for at vi nå utvikler Arctic Wilderness Lodge som vil tilby førsteklasses overnatting for å supplere vårt ishotell og et bredt utvalg av utflukter og safarier. Den nye lodgen skal etter planen åpnes høsten 2021. Lodgen vil gjøre det mulig for Sorrisniva å tilby helårsopplevelser som er basert på sesongvariasjonene samt den lokale villmarken”
Tor Kjetil Wisløff, Dagligleder.

The ice hotel in Sorrisniva is in the middle of the wilderness only thirty minutes from Alta Airport, located perfect to relax, spot the northern lights and enjoy the nature of northern Norway. All exterior and interior inside the hotel is made only by snow and ice; rooms, decoration and even the glasses in the ice bar. The hotel is about 2500 sqm large and has approximately 30 rooms including suites, ice gallery, and ice -chapel. Beautiful artwork created by talented sculptors from Alta decorates the hot el in a unique way every year. Along with the pure white snow it creates a fairy-tale atmosphere inside. The crew working along with the Igloo Hotel is locals and most of them have been with us from the start in year 2000. All together they create and brings their ideas together and makes a hotel we are proudly to present every new season!
Side by side with the Igloo hotel you’ll have access to our main house with our well known restaurant, living room and reception area. The ice rooms contain what you need for your night, which is a comfortable bed covered in reindeer-hides. The sleeping bag and pillow are kept warm inside the main house, until you enter the Igloo hotel for the night. F acilities like toilets, changing rooms, showers and sauna are also in the main house to ensure your comfort. The facilities are public and for you to avail during your stay. Phones and computers can be charged here and your bags are stored safely in our luggage room.
A night in the ice hotel will give you a whole new experience and maybe take you outside your comfort zone! The temperature inside the hotel remain constant between -4 and -7 degrees, and you will feel the cold air around you, while sleeping in a warm and cosy sleeping bag. To ensure you will enjoy the stay with us we want to keep you as comfortable as possible. Natural reindeer-hides, mattress, extreme sleeping-bags and pillow will keep you warm and comfortable during the night, but the best preparation is done by yourself. Prepare yourself for a unique experience and bring with you some warm clothing for the night. Woollen or fleece underwear is recommended for the best comfort. The morning after we welcome you to start the day in our heated sauna, followed by our delicious breakfast buffet.
Samtidig med utbyggingen utvikles nye opplevelsesprodukter for sommer og høst. I dag leverer bedriften etterspurte vinter opplevelser som nordlysturer, snøscootersafari, samiske opplevelser, hundekjøring, og ikke minst unike matopplevelser i vår restaurant hvor vi har fokus på lokale råvarer. Om sommeren er det i dag veldig populært å være med på elvebåturer i den populære lakseelva – Altaelva, kombinert med mat og drikke på elvebredden. Det er helt nødvendig å videreutvikle opplevelsene da de er viktig for å trekke kunder til den nye satsningen.
