When is the best time to visit the ICEHOTEL?
The Icehotel is now open all year-round, offering a variety of activities and experiences in both the winter and summer seasons. For many though, the Icehotel is at its best during the winter months when it is blanketed in snow, the air outside is crisp and cold and the northern lights might make an appearance.
ICEHOTEL in Winter
The winter season starts in December until early April. During these months guests can stay in the new, hand carved art suites, or standard ice rooms before the ice melts away and returns to the Torne river. The seasonal art suites are individually designed; each year heralds more inventive and even quirkier designs by artists from all over the world, no two designs are ever the same. The art suites are completely unique and have never been seen or slept in before. The other 20 standard ice rooms are simpler in their design, with art decor and a bed made of ice. Alongside the ice rooms, there are also traditional hotel rooms, known as ‘warm accommodation’.
Should you book an ICEHOTEL holiday during the winter season, we recommend spending one night in the ice rooms before moving to a chalet or traditional hotel room.
