Full description

Located in Jukkasjarvi, a peaceful village in Swedish Lapland, 200km north of the Arctic Circle and surrounded by pristine snow-covered fells and forests, Icehotel offers thrilling winter activities and mouth-watering Swedish cuisine. With luck, you’ll also witness the spellbinding northern lights. Take this classic short break and discover what all the excitement is about!

The Icehotel

Crafted each year using ice from the frozen River Torne, the new seasonal Icehotel is transformed into a work of art by the world’s leading ice sculptors. November and early December sees the birth of the intricate Ice Rooms, individually created and spectacular Art Suites and iconic sparkling chandeliers of ice.

You can chill out at the Icebar, sipping cocktails from ice glasses and keep an eye on the dark sky in case the northern lights decide to make an appearance.  The Icehotel 365 offers a year-round ice experience, blending seamlessly during winter with the seasonal Icehotel, the 29th this season, melting back into the river each spring.

Independent break

Our fully independent Icehotel Break gives you the flexibility of prebooking a wide range of activities, from ice sculpting workshops to husky sledding and chasing the northern lights. It is also possible to extend your stay and visit another Swedish icon, the Treehotel and perhaps experience the traditional Sapmi Nature camp along the way.
