A hotel very much in demand, which books up far in advance, the Icehotel offers a once in a life time experience. Located on the River Torne, in the remote village of Jukkasjärvi, and constructed entirely out of ice, this iconic hotel is a jewel in Sweden’s crown. The hotel melts in the spring time to be re-designed the following winter, meaning that only you and a select few will share the unique surroundings. Inside, a true spectacle awaits. Elaborate ice sculptures such as giant elephants, whimsical unicorns and peacocks with glowing feathers adorn the rooms. The authentic Swedish restaurant serves up local delicacies including reindeer, elk, grouse & Arctic char, whilst both the ice bar and champagne bar offer sophisticated drinks in ice glasses. As part of this incredible experience, you’ll spend a night in a warm room, a night in a magical ice room, before a final night back in the warm one. The ice room is kept at -5°C and your bed is entirely sculpted from ice and decked with a reindeer blanket. A head to toe snow suit will ensure you have a cosy sleep. This really is a trip to tick off your bucket list.
In the very north of Sweden, a unique Arctic experience awaits. The famous province of Lapland has been the home of the nomadic Sami-people for at least 5,000 years, and in the regional capital of Kiruna, you can experience the picturesque local culture; try dogsled rides, see wild reindeer in the Abisko National Park, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, stay in a hotel made out of ice. Home to The Ice Hotel, the village of Jukkasjärvi is situated 200km north of the Arctic Circle so wrap up warm to enjoy the enchanting winter wonderland! At the heart of the village is the Torne River, which runs 520 km across the country, from the rugged mountains to the Bay of Bothnia. The largest river in Sweden, the natural ice produced by the Torne is used to create the magical Icehotel. If you are visiting Jukkasjärvi between September and April, you may even be in with a chance to witness the truly amazing, natural wonder that is the Northern Lights.
