Icehotel 365 is now open! Sleep on a bed of ice surrounded by dancing clowns, dive into a surreal frozen underwater world, climb an ice staircase to your floating bed and fall asleep surrounded by typography, reindeers, chandeliers, or even an apartment inspired by the Victorian era.

If you’re yet to see Icehotel 365, here’s a sneaky peak into some of the unique designs awaiting those due to visit this year. See all Icehotel holidays.

During the winter months, the hotel will be covered in a blanket of snow, but during the summer it will be kept cool by solar power warmed from the midnight sun, covered with a turf roof and planted with Arctic flowers. As well as featuring a champagne-themed ICEBAR and a unique frozen art gallery, the new hotel will feature 20 suites – each designed and carved by international artists.

Browse the gallery above to see the following Art Suites:

‘Dancers in the Dark’ suite by artists Tjasa Gusfors & Patrick Dallard

‘Once Upon a Time’ by artists Luc Voisin & Mathieu Brison

‘You are My Type’ suite by artists John Bark & Charli Kasselback

‘Don’t Get Lost’ by artist Tommy Alatalo

‘The Victorian Apartment’ by artist Luca Roncoroni

‘Dreamscape’ by artists Alex Haw & Aditya Bhatt

One of the most dramatic suites in Icehotel 365 has been designed and built by British architects Alex Haw and Aditya Bhatt from Atmos Studio in London (who has previously worked on designs for the Eden Project and Paddington Station). Their suite ‘Dreamscape’ features a daring staircase of pure ice that winds from its entrance towards a floating frozen bed, passing through an ‘explosion of snow tentacles’ that appear to be in motion, hoping to encapsulate the energy of a dream…

Nine deluxe suites will also have a heated en-suite bathroom (four with bathtubs), private sauna and warm changing area adjacent to the ice bedroom. This gives guests the chance to combine the adventure of sleeping on ice with the luxury of warm private bathroom facilities.

We offer the largest choice of Icehotel breaks to the UK market, with the chance to combine a stay with a host of IceHotel excursions from husky safaris, snowmobiling, winter survival courses and ice sculpting in winter to wilderness dinners, white water rafting and hiking under the midnight sun in summer.

We offer an exclusive direct flight from London Heathrow to Kiruna from December through to March. Taking just 3.5 hours, our #IceFlight is a quick and convenient way to reach the Icehotel during winter and celebrated its 10th anniversary during the 2016/17 season.

For those wishing to visit during summer, we use scheduled flights via Stockholm. Ideal for independent touring, our Icehotel & Treehotel self drive offers an exciting road trip from Kiruna to Lulea on the shores of the Baltic Sea, staying in two iconic properties.
