Overview

This fantastic short break is great for people who want to experience the best of both worlds. Combine the vibrant city of Stockholm with a taste of the wilderness at the incredible Icehotel. Add a range of optional activities and you will see why this is such a popular trip.

Highlights

  • get your bearings in Stockholm on a boat trip
  • take a stroll through Gamla Stan, the cobbled Old Town
  • don't miss the Royal Palace and Vasa Museum
  • eat out at one of the stylish restaurants
  • take in a theatre show or experience the nightlife
  • sleep in one of the Icehotel's ice rooms, or upgrade to an incredible Art Suite
  • choose from a wealth of winter excursions

Stretched across an archipelago of 14 islands connected by a network of waterways and bridges, Stockholm is a delightful mix of traditional and contemporary and the city centre can easily be explored on foot. For your night in Stockholm you have a choice of accommodation. However, to appreciate this lovely city we recommend extending your stay here.

During the festive season, the addition of thousands of tiny streetlights, enticing shop windows and excellent Christmas markets, make this trip an even more attractive prospect.

From Stockholm take a domestic flight to Kiruna in the far north of Swedish Lapland. On arrival, transfer to nearby Jukkasjarvi and the world-famous Icehotel. The itinerary includes a night 'sleeping on ice' in an ice room, or you could upgrade to an incredible Art Suite. If you prefer you may spend your whole time here in heated accommodation, subject to availability (just ask at the time of booking).

Itinerary & Accommodation

Day 1: Arrive Stockholm
Fly to Stockholm. Take the convenient Arlanda Express train from the airport direct to the city centre (payable locally) and either walk or take a taxi to your chosen hotel. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure, enjoying the many attractions Stockholm has to offer.
Day 2: Stockholm - Kiruna
After breakfast, you have plenty of time to explore more of this amazing city, then back to the airport (payable locally) for an evening flight to Kiruna. Transfer to Icehotel (included) and check in for a two night stay, one night spent in an ice room and one night in a warm room.
Day 3: At leisure at the Icehotel
Free to enjoy the many optional excursions at the Icehotel. We strongly recommend to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Day 4: depart Kiruna
There's still time to sample another activity before being transferred (included) to the airport for an afternoon flight to Stockholm and onwards flight home.
Notes
  • The weather in Sweden can be unpredictable and therefore can cause substantial delays which can result in the need to re-arrange or extend your holiday itinerary. Whilst we and our contacts in Sweden will do everything possible to minimise any disruption, it is important that you check the details of your travel insurance and allow for some flexibility in your plans.
