Full description

The Icehotel

Crafted each year using ice from the frozen River Torne, the Icehotel is transformed into a work of art by the world’s leading ice sculptors. Walking inside, you will be mesmerised by hallways lit by sparkling chandeliers of ice, while the art suites have to be seen to be believed. The Icehotel 365 offers a year-round ice experience, blending seamlessly during winter with the seasonal Icehotel, which melts back into the river each spring. As its leading worldwide partner, we’ve been arranging holidays to the Icehotel since its inception in 1990.

Fly direct on our #Iceflight

Our exclusive direct flight between Heathrow and Kiruna (just 20 minutes from the Icehotel) means we get you there quicker than any other operator in just 3.5 hours rather than 9 hours flying via Stockholm. Plus you avoid the hassle of long transfers and internal flights.

Sleeping in an ice room

Typically Icehotel guests spend one night in an ice room and the other two in warm accommodation. Classic Ice rooms typically contain a double bed but some can sleep up to 4. The Art Suites are larger, individually themed and hand-carved by artists from all over the world. The 365 Art Suites are the largest with a solid door and there are 9 Deluxe Suites that have an en-suite (warm) bathroom. If you’d like to upgrade to an art suite, or book a warm room as back-up for the whole stay our specialists can tailor your trip to suit your every need.

Eating and drinking

The Icehotel restaurant offers a fine dining experience (reservations are highly recommended). There is also a breakfast and lunch buffet served here. New in 2017, the 12-course Chef’s Table experience at the Verandah (16 spaces available per sitting), guests will enjoy a menu of bite-sized delights prepared by Head Chef, Alexander Meier who previously worked in a two Michelin-star rated restaurant. Alternatively a picturesque 20-minute walk from the hotel through the village is the Homestead restaurant serving an la carte menu in a cosy atmosphere. Inside Icehotel 365 you’ll find the Ice Bar serving a selection of cocktails from glasses made of ice. There's also the Lounge bar offering a warm, cosy atmosphere to relax and enjoy a night cap.

Thank you for organising a great adventure for me. I absolutely had the best time - the hotel, excursions and of course the Northern Lights came out to play, too. We added the dog sledding back to the airport as we just didn't want the adventure to end.

Notes

Optional Ice Room Experience

Sleeping in an Ice Room (or any room within the actual Icehotel) is a great experience – many people claim it’s the best night’s sleep they've ever had! Please note that on your night in the Icehotel you will check out of your warm accommodation and check in at the 'cold reception' where you will store your belongings and have use of the facilities, including a sauna. If you prefer to spend all your nights in heated accommodation this is also possible, subject to availability.

Alternatively, if you are unsure about an Ice Room (or have back problems) but would still like to try it, you can book the standard arrangements and reserve an additional back-up warm room. This requires a supplement and is subject to availability. Please view our Icehotel accommodation and FAQs page for more details. Or contact our travel specialists who will also be happy to discuss any questions you may have about sleeping on ice.
