Description

Does your bucket list include spending a night in an igloo? Then come with us to an extraordinary experience in northern Sweden: The Icehotel Jukkasjärvi.

Destination

Europe

  1. Sweden

Just 200 km away from the Arctic Circle, where the last wild rivers in Europe make their way through nature, icy temperatures prevail in winter.

However, thanks to Icehotel's construction method, the temperatures inside the hotel are constant, between -5 and -7 degrees. The project, which is both a hotel and an art installation, started in 1989. The hotel melts in the spring and gets rebuilt every year, acquiring a new and unique look every time.

But what if you don't want to (or can't) wait for winter to have the Icehotel experience?

Well, now you can stay at Icehotel 365. As the name suggests, it works all year round. Sustainable solar energy and a sophisticated cooling system make it possible to maintain constant temperatures. Over Icehotel 365's 2100 m², you will find an art gallery, suites, a bar, and an event area. It's a place like no other.

For the ice hotel's construction, they extract what they need from the nearby Torne River. It is the longest freshwater river in Sweden and the last unexploited river in Europe - which is why its ice is so pure.

Kiruna airport is 14 km away.

The rustic Homestead Restaurant (Hembygdsarden) sits to the right of the Torne River. In the old half-timbered house from 1768, which also doubles as a museum, you can enjoy exceptional cuisine in a rustic ambience and spend a cozy evening with loved ones.

A visit to the Icebar is a can't miss experience. After drinking a delicious cocktail or a glass of champagne in ice glasses, you can boogie on the bar's dance floor.

The Icehotel Restaurant is warm and cozy, in an exceptionally non-icy, traditional building. The dishes on offer borrow inspiration from the nearby Torne River.

Please note that all restaurants require a fixed table reservation at the time of booking.

The hotel's 130 rooms (with the number varying every year, depending on the structure of the hotel) divides into two categories: Cold Rooms and Warm Rooms.

To keep you nice and cozy in the -5 to -8 degree Cold Rooms, you will have a sleeping bag that keeps you warm even at temperatures as low as -20 degrees. Other standard features include outdoor clothing, gloves, shoes, towels, and bed linen. You can store your luggage in a warm place at the reception desk. The bed you sleep on has a thick mattress and reindeer skins. Since the Icehotel is open to visitors from 10 AM to 6 PM, a wake-up call at 7:30 AM is necessary. But don't worry! Warm cranberry juice and breakfast awaits you.

To make sure that you will make the most of your experience in the Cold Rooms, you will get proper training on what to wear and how to use your sleeping bag before your stay.

The Cold Rooms are available both in the Icehotel (from November to April), and in the Icehotel 365 (possible throughout the year).
