Overview: The SnowCastle of Kemi by the Gulf of Bothnia in Finland is a source of great pride as well as a true showcase of architectonic snow-work of the local constructors. Every winter the SnowCastle offers wonderful experiences for both children and adults alike. Great light-effects add to the charm of snow and ice sculpting as well as to the structures around the SnowCastle.
Building of the SnowCastle starts in December and it takes appr. 5 weeks to build the whole entity. Natural snow is too soft, and therefore, the snow is made from sea water by using snow pipes.
