Experiences in a world of ice and snow

Luvattumaa is a fort of northern experiences in Levi, Lapland, Finland. The attraction comprises a 1 000-square-metre snow castle that houses the Ice Hotel and Gallery, a kota-style (traditional tepee-like structure) main building with a Lappish restaurant as well as a sauna building on the river bank.

Luvattumaa is situated only a 10-minute drive from the centre of Levi village and a 20-minute drive from Kittilä Airport.

Magical Northern Lights night

A unique night for all senses – experience the Ice Hotel and Gallery, Lappish restaurant and the Aurora Borealis!

Luvattumaa lies far away from city lights by a river and surrounded by forest, making the immediate surroundings ideal for Northern Lights watching and enjoying the starry sky of the north – not forgetting the snowy nature that is spellbinding any time of the day!

We’re proud of the local food we serve, and the heart of our restaurant – the open fire – creates a unique and authentic Lapland atmosphere.


Our Magical Northern Lights night includes:

Guided tour of the snow castle, its hotel rooms and gallery with fascinating artwork and sculptures of snow and ice

A video experience in the snow castle theatre: Lapland’s four seasons and the Northern Lights

Northern Lights hunting on the Luvattumaa grounds
