Overview

This fantastic winter holiday combines 'fire and ice' bringing together the stylish cool of Sweden's Icehotel with the volcanic natural wonders of Iceland.

Over the course of 7 nights, you'll sleep on ice, explore the pristine wilderness of Swedish Lapland, marvel at erupting geysers, bathe in Blue Lagoon and experience the culture of two distinct capitals - Stockholm and Reykjavik. And with plenty of chances to witness the northern lights, this itinerary offers diverse and unforgettable experiences.

In spite what its name may suggest, Iceland does not have an ice hotel of its own, so we designed this holiday to offer the best of both worlds. Of course, you can also opt for a 3-night break at the Icehotel in Swedish Lapland or short escape to Iceland.

Highlights

  • Spend a night in an ice room at the Icehotel
  • Explore the pristine surrounds of Swedish Lapland on a choice of activities
  • Enjoy time at leisure in Iceland exploring Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle
  • Great chances for seeing the northern lights
  • Experience Scandinavia culture and cuisine in vibrant Stockholm

Spend time at the iconic Icehotel amidst the snow covered winter wonderland of Swedish Lapland as well as marvel at the volcanic curiosities and intriguing landscapes of Iceland's south west. You'll also be able to contrast the style and history of Stockholm with the quirky charm and artistic flair of Reykjavik on a truly memorable winter holiday.

With a huge choice of optional activities available throughout, this flexible itinerary allows you to make your time away as active or relaxed as you wish. And if conditions permit, see might see the northern lights in both countries!

Also Consider

If you'd prefer a single-centre escape, our classic 3-night Icehotel Break is a popular choice, while in Iceland during winter our small group escorted holiday Northern Lights Special showcases the best of south west.
