Icehotel 365 is always open! Showcasing some of the most unique ice-art designs in the world, 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, reindeer, chandeliers, or even an apartment inspired by the Victorian era.

Icehotel 365 sits in the heart of Swedish Lapland. During the summer it is kept cool by solar power warmed from the midnight sun. It is covered with a turf roof and planted with Arctic flowers to blend in with its surroundings. During the winter months, the hotel is covered in a blanket of snow and complements the seasonal hotel, which is newly built each winter before melting in spring leaving Icehotel 365 to endure alone.

As well as featuring the famous Icebar and a unique frozen art gallery, this permanent ice hotel features 20 suites – each designed and carved by international artists.

  • ‘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 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.
