We are very grateful to have had the honor of working with Northern Lights Village Saariselkä for two years in a row. The idea of the frozen ice bar and restaurant came when Markku Inkilä, the owner of a glass-roofed resort in Saariselkä, Finland found their inside restaurant too small to fit all of the incoming customers.
Instead of just extending the current restaurant, why not build something totally different, something spectacular?
Our warriors were happy to get into work. By taking advance of the Lapland’s local rivers, we harvested tons of ice to create an ice bar and restaurant to Northern Lights Village. “The customers have simply loved it”, Markku says. There is no doubt that the ice restaurant provides an extraordinary setting for an unforgettable dinner. The frozen experience has been a fantastic addition to the whole Northern Lights Village adventure with its’ glass-roofed cabins, husky safaris, reindeer encountering and Aurora hunting.
