facebook  tripadvisor

Pure white snow walls surround the gigantic SnowCastle built entirely out of snow and ice, both made of sea water. This amazing artwork of ice and snow can be found right by the frozen sea near Kemi city centre! The castle is open from the end of January until mid-April. The world's largest SnowRestaurant seats around 200 guests. The SnowChapel with a mystical atmosphere is a memorable venue for wedding ceremonies. The SnowHotel with unique, beautifully decorated snow rooms offers a true arctic adventure. The enormous SnowCastle is a highly unique venue for visitors offering also various winter activities.

The first ever SnowCastle was built in the city of Kemi in 1996 as a present to all the children in the world. The theme for the year 2018 is Animal Wonderland. Read more here. In 2017 the SnowCastle of Kemi took part in celebrating the 100 years of independency in Finland. Independence day and big celebration in Finalnd is on 6th of December 2017.
