Over 126 unique entries and only 15 suites; the designs for the 2019/20 season’s Icehotel have been revealed! Featuring the largest ever group of artists from 34 different countries including two design teams from the UK, the 30th edition of this magical hotel is anticipated to be more extraordinary than ever before. Take a look at some of the design sketches below.

“It’s 30 years since the start of what later came to be the world-known ICEHOTEL. It’s a great honour to receive fantastic applications from creative people all over the world. I am really looking forward to welcoming the artist teams to Jukkasjärvi this winter and see their visions turn in to unique experiences for our guests.”Luca Roncoroni, Creative Director at the Icehotel

What’s new

From checking into a frozen West End theatre production and sleeping next to a submerged iceberg, to spending the night in a subterranean ice room with giant ice ants, settling down in a frozen feline lair, waking up surrounded by an ice-carved Kaleidoscope, enjoying the Greek island of Santorini as a backdrop and enjoying cocktails surrounded by frozen roller-coasters and carnival games in the Icebar, this year’s hotel will have an incredible range of rooms for guests to enjoy when it officially opens on 13th December 2019.

‘A Night at the Theatre’ Art Suite

British father and daughter duo, Jonathan and Marni Green, are back again to take us to a Night at the Theatre. Get your Oscar speech ready!

This suite celebrates 30 years of Icehotel with an Icehotel-themed West End production, complete with ice-carved curtains, a stage with reindeers waiting in the wings and an impressive scale model of the hotel entrance in the centre of the room. A bed will be nested amongst miniature theatre seats in the auditorium and there will also be six life-size ice seats for guests to sit on behind.
