How amazing would it be to celebrate the dawn of a New Year somewhere as pristine and unspoilt as an ice hotel in Swedish Lapland? Under the clear dark skies of the polar night keep watch for nature’s own light show, the northern lights, chink ice glasses and celebrate in style.
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 its scares the dogs hence the traditional bonfire.
As with our Christmas trip, there is just one departure so spaces are strictly limited!
Day 1 Kiruna to Icehotel fly from the UK to Kiruna direct and transfer to Jukkasjarvi. Check in at the Icehotel for 4 nights (one in an ice room, three nights in a warm room) and get kitted out in your thermal clothing, on loan for the duration of your stay. Then have a guided tour around the Icehotel.
Day 2 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 champagne 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 3 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.
Day 4 At leisure at the Icehotel enjoy the scenic surroundings or perhaps join one of the optional activities.
Day 5 Icehotel-Kiruna morning at leisure, perhaps to have one last look around the Icehotel or take part in another optional activity before transferring to the airport for the flight home.
Please note if you wish to substitute your night in a cold room for another in warm accommodation, please contact us to check availability.
We strongly advise you to pre-book your optional activities during the festive season.
