Not one, but FIVE, of our incredible hotels, were selected for TIME Magazine’s World’s Greatest Places: Here’s a quick round-up and why you should visit ASAP!

1. Icehotel (Jukkasjarvi, Sweden)

This one has come as no surprise – there is truly no hotel quite like Sweden’s Icehotel. Guests sleep on ice surrounded by mesmerising ice sculptures, staircases and more. By day, unwind in a hot sauna or take a dog sled ride; by night, sip on arctic-inspired cocktails at the hotel bar! Book your DIRECT flight, exclusively with us.

2. Treehotel (Harads, Sweden)

Another remarkable hotel located in a tiny village in Sweden’s Arctic region. Unlike any other treehouse, you had as a child! Extraordinary exteriors; a UFO, a birds nest and the sleek ‘7th Room’. Sleep under the northern lights in this one of a kind camping experience!
