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.

 

ICEHOTEL 365

 

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.

 

WINTER AT ICEHOTEL

 

Winter breaks are also on offer, giving guests the opportunity to take a tour through the wilderness on a snowmobile, be guided into the magical world of ice sculpting, or experience a moose safari on the back of an Icelandic horse with a mountainous backdrop of the Abisko National Park and the peaks of Kebnekaise.

 

No matter what time of year, whether surrounded by the natural beauty and long daylight hours of a Swedish summer or under the dazzling lights of the Aurora Borealis, a stay at this unique hotel is guaranteed to be one that you will never forget.

 

TREEHOTEL AND ICEHOTEL

 

Why not consider combining a stay at two of the most unique hotels in Sweden, Treehotel and ICEHOTEL?

 

Located in the natural forest of Harads, 90km north-west of Luleå, the Treehotel is the childhood dream of Kent and Brittas Lindvall which has now become reality. With extraordinary tree rooms created by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, a stay here can be as relaxing or as adventurous as you want. Without a doubt, it will be an unforgettable experience. 

 

Enjoy two nights among the trees before moving to the sub-zero temperatures of ICEHOTEL for the experience of a lifetime. 

 

A four night tour starting from £1,958, includes transfers throughout (except from Kiruna train station to Jukkasjärvi, payable locally), 1st class train transfer from Boden to Kiruna, 2 nights at the Treehotel, Harads (HB) plus 2 nights at the ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjärvi on a B&B basis.

 

Amongst the other highlights included are a Northern Lights tour through the Arctic wilderness by shared snowmobile with a three course evening meal, a dog sled tour through the winter wonderland to a wilderness hut for coffee and cake around a camp fire and a visit to a reindeer camp to learn about the Sámi culture. 

 

Any booking made with us before 30 June 2017 will be offered complimentary access to an airport lounge at London Gatwick or London Heathrow.
