5 grunner til å velge ishotell for ditt vinterbryllup i Alta

Drømmer dere om et vinter eventyrbryllup? Det er flere gode grunner for å velge et ishotell for deres vinterbryllup. Men her er topp-5 fra meg!

Det er så unikt som det kan bli

Hotellet smelter ned rundt April-måned hvert år. Året deretter bygges det på nytt med et helt nytt tema. Dere kan ha et bryllup fra 2 til 40 personer.

Getting married in ice hotel will be an unforgettable experience for the couple and the guests

Uforglemmelig opplevelse

Ishotellet i seg selv er en fantastisk opplevelse. Men i tillegg til bryllupsdagen kan man få mange andre nordiske opplevelser. Det blir med på å gjøre oppholdet i Alta uforglemmelig! Jeg anbefaler i det minste å prøve å jakte på nordlyset! Bare husk å få minnene deres foreviget!

Ekstremt, men komfortabelt

Selv om ishotellet er ganske ekstremt, er det fortsatt komfortabel temperatur inne i kapellet. Temperaturen inne holder seg stabilt rundt -3 grader, selv når det er – 25 grader ute. Ingen vind kommer inn heller!

Når dere gifter dere i iskapellet, får dere følelse av både utendørs og innendørs bryllup. Det er ganske fint, fordi seremonien blir mer forutsigbar i forhold til et utendørs bryllup.
