Icehotel Holidays

Experience sleeping on ice at the coolest hotel in the world – the original ice hotel in Swedish Lapland. We fell under the spell of the Icehotel when it first emerged beside the Torne River in the village of Jukkasjarvi back in 1990.

Now, over 25 years later, we're proud to be its leading worldwide partner, offering an unrivalled collection of winter breaks as well as the UK's only direct flight to Kiruna – just 20 minutes from the Icehotel.

About the Icehotel

Every winter, 200km north of the Arctic Circle in the heart of Swedish Lapland, something truly magical happens. As the waters of the Torne River freeze over, a glittering, shimmering hotel emerges, sculpted from the ice itself. Set in a pristine wilderness of snowclad pine forests and frozen lakes, the Icehotel is the ultimate winter wonderland – an unforgettable destination for a weekend break, action-packed northern lights adventure or indulgent winter getaway combining extraordinary accommodation and fine dining. With the opening of Icehotel 365 in December 2016, you can now experience this travel icon year round.

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. Over 1,000 tonnes of ice and 30,000 cubic metres of snice are harvested each winter from the nearby Torne River before being crafted into the original Icehotel. Come late April and this seasonal Icehotel simply melts back into the river.

The newly opened Icehotel 365 is a permanent structure, offering the experience of sleeping on ice year round. Covered in snow during winter, it blends seamlessly with the adjacent winter structure, while in summer its domed roof is covered in wild flowers. Maintained at sub-zero temperatures by solar power, the interior of Icehotel 365 is just like the winter one, complete with Icebar, art gallery and 20 suites, including nine sensational Deluxe Suites, each with a heated ensuite bathroom, private sauna and warm changing area.

If you are looking for a truly inspiring winter getaway, then a visit to the Icehotel should be at the top of your 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 winter 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 a great location for viewing the aurora borealis. During the evening, aurora watchers head down to the frozen river to gaze at the night sky in expectation of viewing the northern lights - possibly after enjoying a cocktail or two in the Icebar. Alternatively, there is a range of enticing excursions from husky safaris to snowmobile tours operating in the evening deep into the wilderness that offer excellent chances to view the aurora, if the cloud conditions permit.

However, if seeing the northern lights is your priority, we recommend combining 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!
