About the Icehotel

Every winter in the heart of Swedish Lapland, something truly magical happens. As the waters of the river Torne freeze over, a glittering, shimmering hotel emerges, sculpted out of the ice itself. Set in pristine wilderness in Swedish Lapland around 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Icehotel is a magnificent location for a weekend break or longer holiday with a difference.

From the moment you step inside the door, you’ll understand why this hotel is famous the world over – from it’s hallways lined with ice art and glittering chandeliers, to the atmospheric ice bar, you won’t be able to stop yourself being swept away by the magic.

The ingenuity of the design and construction has to be seen to be believed and, with an interior temperature kept at a constant -5°C, it really does take your breath away. Each winter the hotel is built to a new design, filled with all manner of amazing ice sculptures and features, only for it to melt back into the river from sometime in April.

If you are looking for a truly inspiring winter getaway, then a visit to the Icehotel should be at the top of your ‘to do’ list. The ‘sleeping on ice’ experience is certainly not to be forgotten and is far more comfortable than it may at first sound. Add in fine dining, a cosy bed for additional nights, a whole host of snowbound activities such as husky sledding and snowmobiling and the chance to see the northern lights you have the ultimate ‘cool’ break.

The aurora over the Icehotel

The Icehotel and the Aurora

Sitting well above the Arctic Circle in the tiny village of Jukkasjarvi, the Icehotel is in an great location for viewing the aurora borealis. Aurora watchers head down to the frozen river each night in expectation of viewing the northern lights or choose from an enticing range of excursions from husky safaris to snowmobile tours. If seeing the aurora is your priority, combine your Icehotel experience with an overnight stay in Abisko National Park visiting the Aurora Sky Station - one of the best places in the world for northern lights!
