Experience of the Month: ICEHOTEL

June 1, 2017


Located in Jukkasjärvi, in the heart of the unspoiled wilderness of Swedish Lapland, stands the world famous ICEHOTEL


For the last 27 years, each winter a unique and breathtaking sculpture has taken form on the banks of the River Torne; a structure where everything from the artwork, to the chairs you sit on, the beds you sleep on, and the glass in your hand has been made using crystal clear ice from the neighbouring river. 


Recently featured in Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby, this year the ICEHOTEL launched a new 365 concept.


Using innovative technologies, a new, permanent structure has been constructed, inside of which, are corridors adorned with ice sculptures, Deluxe and Art Suites, and an ICEBAR.


We have teamed up with Scandinavian specialists Sunvil to bring you a unique and exciting experience that should not be missed.




There is nothing like a Scandinavian summer. The fresh air; lush, pristine natural beauty and long daylight hours combine in an effortless harmony to leave you, the visitor, feeling reinvigorated and in awe. At every turn, you will discover a vast wilderness brimming with flowing rivers, crystal clear lakes and lush woodland.  


From £854 for three nights, ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent structure that will include luxury suites all sculptured by selected artists, as well as a large ice bar that serves champagne, and an ice gallery. 


Enjoy the light of the Midnight Sun from the grounds of the hotel; take a gentle stroll in the woodland surrounding Jukkasjarvi or hire a bicycle, kayak or SUP paddle board from the hotel and explore further afield. You could also take the local bus into Kiruna and learn why the location of the city is being moved or explore the community with a visit to Jukkasjarvi church and the neighbouring reindeer park.


Proving to be the perfect summer vacation, there are several activities on offer include a fishing adventure in the Torne River – considered one of the best fishing waters in Europe, hiking to the summit of the Aptas Mountains, witnessing the magical phenomenon of the Northern Lights and enjoying a delicious three course meal at ICEHOTEL’s wilderness camp.
