Full description

What better way to celebrate the festive season than to spend it somewhere that boasts a spectacular Icehotel and perfect Christmas-card scenery. As if a holiday at the Icehotel isn't special enough, at Christmas it takes on a whole new ambience, lit with twinkling lights and decorated trees, as festive aromas punctuate your senses, warming Glögg full of Christmas spices and that consummate favourite, traditional gingerbread - available throughout the day . You'll have no problem getting into the festive spirit and we don't just mean by visiting the Icebar!

Departing on 24th December, you’ll spend 3 nights surrounded by a real-life winter wonderland. With a wide range of exciting winter activities on offer, there are plenty of options for exploring the snow covered wilderness areas surrounding the quaint Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi.

On Christmas Day you can choose to join the special torchlight procession to the village's picturesque church for a Christmas Day carol concert. And don’t forget to keep a look out for the northern lights. Surely the perfect way to spend the most wonderful time of the year!

This magical departure is one not to miss. With only one direct flight from London Heathrow to Kiruna, availability is limited so early booking is advisable and we often have availability even when the hotel is otherwise fully booked.
