Full description

Located 200km north of the Arctic Circle, in the small village of Jukkasjarvi, the Icehotel is skillfully crafted each year using ice from the frozen River Torne. It is thereby 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.

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 Jukkasjarvi and its surrounds, people here prefer not to set off fireworks in case they scare the dogs, hence the traditional bonfire.

During your stay you'll spend one night in an iconic ice room and the other two in warm accommodation. You can choose to upgrade to an ice Art Suites, or even book a warm room as back-up for the whole stay.

The Icehotel restaurant offers a fine dining experience and is where the New Year's Eve gala dinner is served. Also in the village is the Homestead restaurant, which is a picturesque 20-minute walk from the hotel.
