The Nordic region, which includes Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, has always been perceived as cold, distant and a mysterious place to visit. However, fret not! This June holidays, Changi Airport brings a Nordic adventure to you – right here in the comfort of sunny Singapore! Embark on your own journey of exploration, strike a pose with our colourful displays and say hello to our Sanrio friends as they join in the fun!

Be transported to a Nordic world

Revel in not one, but four different experiences at the Nordic exhibition. Featuring a Viking Ship-inspired gallery, a Northern Lights projection display, a Fjords of Norway installation and a detailed Swedish Old Town set-up, you can explore all that the various Nordic destinations have to offer in one place. Immerse yourself in each Nordic country and have fun learning more about their iconic landmarks.

If you want a complete adventure, seize this opportunity to experience true Nordic weather right here in the Snow Fun House! Ride a snow luge, build snow castles or say hi to the resident snowman with his igloo – all while realistic snowfall softly drifts around you.

Snow Fun House Operating Hours: 12pm – 10pm daily (last registration at 9.30pm)
