ICEHOTEL
ICEHOTEL

Since its original conception in 1989, the owners of the ICEHOTEL have taken the surrounding snow and ice and morphed it into a fully functioning snow hotel. World famous sculptors transform huge blocks of ice into dramatic art, which then adorns the hotel and its rooms. Facilities include cold and warm accommodation; sauna, an ICEBAR, ice gallery and two restaurants, as well as a whole host of winter activities. Each spring, the structure was left melt back into the waters of the River Torne, however reinforcing its reputation for innovation, November 2016 saw the launch of ICEHOTEL 365, a revolutionary concept allowing guests to experience the unique atmosphere of the ICEHOTEL year round. ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent structure that houses 22 art and luxury ice suites, whereas the much-loved classic ICEHOTEL will continue to be constructed each December and will accommodate up to 30 ice rooms and winter suites. You can be assured that the ground-breaking, state-of-the-art ice designs and sculptures created by the specially commissioned artists and architects will continue to adorn both buildings and cement its position as the world’s leading ICEHOTEL.

TREEHOTEL
TREEHOTEL

Situated in Harads in the southern reaches of Swedish Lapland, the Treehotel comprises of 6 ground-breaking cabins suspended amongst trees and accessed by a variety of bridges and ladders. Choose from the almost invisible Mirror Cube, the Bird’s Nest, emulating the home of our feathered friends, or the UFO seemingly transported from another world. The Dragonfly spreads its wings amongst the branches, whereas the Blue Cone is actually a red square. The Cabin is poised high on the hillside and has dramatic views of the Lule River Valley. Each cabin has a simple interior design (including eco WC), which only serves to emphasise and enhance the natural surroundings. Meals are served at Britta’s Guest House, a traditional Swedish homestead which oozes character and an unusual 1950’s vibe. Activities on offer include a forest spa, ice dining, family snow fun, along with snowmobile & husky safaris and horse adventures. Please refer to our website for a full listing of some extraordinary experiences.

Treehotel Snowmobile Tours

As the snow descends, the snowmobile becomes the preferred choice of transport in the region. After instruction and driving in pairs (with the opportunity to swop driver’s half-way) you head out with your expert guide into the surrounding wilderness. A daytime excursion offers the opportunity to meander through the forests and across frozen lakes to be rewarded with some spectacular views of this winter landscape. An evening excursion still offers the thrill of the ride, with the added possibility of seeing the northern lights. Hot drinks and a snack are served en-route.
