Situated in Jukkasjärvi, 200km north of the Arctic Circle in the northern reaches of Swedish Lapland, ICEHOTEL was founded in 1989 and is the world's original hotel built entirely from snow and ice, often copied but never bettered.

ICEHOTEL is not just a hotel, it is a unique work of art which sees artists from around the world gathering to create an exclusive and breathtaking exhibition that will melt away leaving only its footprint come springtime.

Transforming from solid ice to a free flowing river during the space of a few months, this amazing feat of construction takes place annually with the first visitors arriving in early December to witness the final touches taking place of one of the worlds' most extreme building processes. From mid-December through to early April you can witness this mesmerizing creation on daily guided tours or for an experience like no other you may choose to spend a night in sub-zero temperatures on a bed made of ice.

With two 'warm' restaurants, an Ice Chapel and the iconic ICEBAR, ICEHOTEL offers both warm and cold accommodation, ensuring this internationally acclaimed icon provides a complete Arctic experience whether you choose to stay for the night, a few days or simply wish to take a look around.

NEW FOR 2017
Ground-breaking plans have been released to create a sustainable addition to the iconic ICEHOTEL with a year-round ice structure chilled by the sun by way of solar power!

Launching November 2016, the concept ICEHOTEL 365 will provide a sleeping-on-ice experience year round allowing you to combine summer and autumn adventures in addition to the classic winter activities.
