In 1999 the restaurant was expanded, giving space for 270 visitors and the igloo saw construction of its own kitchen. Traditional Lappish buildings, lean-to campfire spots, a Lappish kota hut and nili food cache are also found in the grounds.
Smaller snow and ice constructions, a wedding suite and ice floor disco area, and a large ice bar also decorate the grounds.
Construction of the Igloo Restaurant starts in early November each year and takes approximately four weeks.
The Igloo Restaurant opens on 1st December 2018 and closes during the second week in April 2019.
