Stay amongst ice art in the shape of fantastic design and wonderful sculptures. Spacious accomodation for a special occasion. You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a special bed of snow and ice, on reindeer skins.
Experience the extraordinary, unique and glistening ICEHOTEL at Jukkasjarvi deep in the heart of Swedish Lapland. Enjoy traditional Sami cuisine; the Absolut Ice Bar; and snowmobile, reindeer and husky safaris for a thrilling holiday with a difference.
Our ‘Ice Break’ takes you up to the ICEHOTEL in Swedish Lapland on early morning scheduled flights with SAS via Stockholm for a three night stay to which you can add excursions to suit your needs (and budget).
You can try your hand at ice sculpting under the tuition of an accomplished ice sculptor or test drive a Saab turbo on an ice track used by professionals. All of the options shown opposite are pre-bookable and for those involving the use of an animal or something with an engine we strongly recommended doing so, as all get booked up very early. Extending your stay at the ICEHOTEL and safariing in the wilderness for an overnight stay in a log cabin is just one of the more adventurous options that are available and that we’ll be happy to talk through with you.
Each December, the celebrated ICEHOTEL is sculpted from 30,000 tons of snow and ice only to melt away each spring. Each year’s design differs, the final detail being revealed only when the last ice block is in place and the last bedroom finished.
The hotel consists of the Absolut Bar, art gallery, consecrated chapel, ‘hall of pillars’ and a choice of snow rooms, ice rooms or art suites all sculpted from ice. Guests sleep in special thermal Arctic sleeping bags on frame beds topped with reindeer skins.
