Begin your adventure with a night in the famous Icehotel*, take a tour around this amazing hotel made entirely of ice and snow with each of the art suites designed by internationally renowned artists. Don’t forget to try one of the colourful cocktails in the Icebar. You have the choice of spending the night in an Ice Room or in the warm accommodation.
The following day head off to Ripan Resort, just a 20 minute transfer from the Icehotel. The location of this hotel could not be better, right on nature’s doorstep and close to ski, snowmobile and husky sledge trails but also within a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Kiruna. You can fill your day with skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, husky sledging, horse riding, reindeer sledging or perhaps join on a moose safari. Ripan's Aurora Spa is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the different facilities on offer such as the indoor or outdoor hot pool, sauna, gym and treatments. Guests at the hotel receive a discounted price to these facilities.
Sit back and relax or be as active as you wish, whatever you prefer, there are plenty of options during your stay at Ripan Resort, the cosy accommodation offers a perfect retreat after a day of snow activities.
