Full description

With the Icehotel still looking particularly festive after the Christmas celebrations, New Year here tends to be a more romantic affair. As there are more huskies than people in Jukkasjärvi and its surrounds, people here prefer not to set off fireworks in case they scare the dogs hence the traditional bonfire.

As with our Christmas trip, there is just one departure so spaces are strictly limited!

Day 3: New Year’s Eve at the Icehotel

Enjoy a buffet breakfast in the restaurant then the day is free to explore your scenic surrounds on one of the many optional excursions from husky sledding to snowmobiling. In the evening, enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine before a delicious à la carte dinner. Then head back to the Icehotel, wrap up warm and stand around a traditional bonfire within a circle of candles down by the frozen River Torne, faces aglow as the countdown to midnight begins.

Day 4: New Year's Day

At the Icehotel after a late night you might wish to have a lazy morning. Alternatively, there will be plenty of things to do should you wish to be more active - don’t forget, it is advisable to book the optional excursions in advance, or at least soon after check in to ensure availability.
