ICEHOTEL & ICEHOTEL365

The new luxurious ICEHOTEL365 alongside the world famous & original ICEHOTEL. Experience the magic of the Northern Lights and ICEHOTEL in the fairy-tale world of Swedish Lapland.

Overview

The traditional ICEHOTEL holiday and a magical experience in Swedish Lapland.

Fly from the UK to Kiruna and enjoy three nights at the world famous and original ICEHOTEL. You land in this magical winter wonderland at Kiruna airport in the early afternoon. The transfer to ICEHOTEL takes just twenty minutes. Check in at the main reception, collect your warm outer clothing and explore this incredible structure. 

Included is a guided tour of ICEHOTEL and some useful information about how to sleep well at -5C.

New for 2016/17 - ICEHOTEL 365
ICE HOTEL is always full of surprises and 2016_17 will be no different – ICEHOTEL365 is born! ICEHOTEL365 will open in November 2016 and ICEHOTEL will stand 365 days of the year on the banks of the Torne River with 22 spectacular rooms of snow and ice.

Standing along ICEHOTEL365 is the traditional Winter ICEHOTEL (opening 10Dec) with an additional 30 rooms for winter and northern lights visitors. 

The Simply Sweden Experience
Seeing the blue arch for the first time when you arrive at ICEHOTEL is quite surreal. When you take your first sip from your ICEglass in the ICEbar there is a brief moment when your lips stick to the ICE and waking up in a room of ice surround by incredible ICEsculptures leaves a lasting impression.
