Overview

Stay 200 km north of the Arctic Circle on this independent short break combining the long days of the Arctic summer with the chance to spend a night sleeping on ice in the extraordinary Icehotel 365. With a range of activities available, including ice-sculpting workshops, dinner in the wilderness and exhilarating river rafting on Torne River immerse yourself in beautiful nature and exquisite ice art.

You get to choose the pace during your stay and with long days and light nights there’s plenty of time for outdoor activities as well as relaxing in the riverside sauna.

Join a local guide and learn wilderness skills and how to survive in the Arctic nature or focus on photographing wildlife and nature. Perhaps take part in a Nordic sauna ritual and finish the night off at the mouthwatering chef’s table in the Icehotel restaurant - a fantastic fusion of atmosphere and traditional and local cuisine.

Midnight Sun or Autumn Colours

Experience the Arctic summer under the magic of the midnight sun, which from early May to the end of July sun does not set. During August the sun starts dipping below the horizon at night though the days are still long.

Autumn in the Arctic is a magical time. By day, the fells and forests glow with vibrant hues of red and gold, while night sees the return of the spellbinding northern lights. Autumn is also harvest time, with wild berries and mushrooms adding a seasonal twist to mouth-watering Swedish cuisine, tempting visitors and wildlife alike.

Icehotel Accommodation

While the Icehotel’s main draw is it’s rooms made entirely of ice and snow, it also features heated accommodation, which this holiday is based on. Kaamos rooms are hotel-style rooms in contemporary Scandinavian style and sleep two mostly in twin beds. There are also Arctic Chalets sleeping up to three people and Nordic chalets sleeping up to four. Both types of chalet has separate bedrooms and living area.

Icehotel 365

This permanent building offers a year-round ice experience, with individually designed and carved Art and Deluxe Suites that have to be seen to be believed. You can chill out at the Icebar, sipping cocktails from ice glasses and experience ‘winter’, even when it is summer outside.

You can upgrade to spend a night in an amazing Art Suite from £58 per person per night or a Deluxe Suite from £355 per person per night.
