An iconic experience on everyone's 'Bucket List' - To spend a night in sub-zero temperatures at the original ICEHOTEL!
Allow us to make your dream a reality and create memories that will last a lifetime, whether you choose to stay for just one night, a few days or simply wish to take a look around.
Founded in 1989 ICEHOTEL is the world's first hotel made of snow and ice and is constructed each year with the help of artists from around the world who design, sculpt and carve unique creations to create an art exhibition like no other. With an inside temperature of a consistent -5°C to -8°C, the cold rooms feature beds made from ice on which lies a mattress covered with warm reindeer hides, add to this a cosy thermal sleeping bag and you are set for the night. Choose the standard Ice Rooms complete with snow and ice décor or opt for the individually themed Suites with surreal hand crafted interiors and adorned with incredible ice sculptures. For the ultimate indulgence the Deluxe Art Suites go the extra mile with a heated relaxation area and en suite bathroom with sauna.
ICEHOTEL is open for day visitors between 10am-6pm with guided tours available however outside of these hours the hotel is open exclusively for overnight guests.
After checking into your room you are invited to join one of the guided tours which will allow you to gain an insight into the incredible feat of construction that takes place each year and marvel at the myriad of unimaginable interiors offered each season, each one different to the last and the WOW factor just keeps on coming.
You will have access to your cold room from 6pm, however the trick is not to settle down too soon. Dine at one of the two 'warm' restaurants, either the Scandinavian styled ICEHOTEL Restaurant or the more rustic Homestead Restaurant, before heading to the ICEBAR to acclimatise. Then hat, gloves and warm woolly socks at the ready, it's time for bed!. After what may be your most surreal night yet, you will be woken the following morning with a cup of hot lingonberry juice before heading into the warm for breakfast.
You may wish to stay for longer at this iconic hotel and this is certainly possible with additional nights in the hotels 'warm' accommodation or you can combine your ICEHOTEL experience with other hotels in Swedish Lapland such as the nearby Camp Ripan or the equally unique Treehotel.
Winter activities are also available to complete your Arctic experience from the usual dog sledding, snowmobile and reindeer experiences to the more unusual ice sculpting classes, sauna rituals and winter wilderness survival courses.
As an extension to a longer itinerary or as a standalone experience this really is an opportunity not to be missed whilst visiting Swedish Lapland.
This itinerary can be offered as a stand alone experience or tailor made to your requirements for a longer stay combining warm and cold accommodation with your choice of winter activities.
