The small, remote village of Jukkasjärvi is home to one of Sweden’s most famous attractions: the spectacular ICEHOTEL. Created from huge blocks of ice harvested from the River Torne and a team of artists from around the world who come to turn their ideas into reality, ICEHOTEL is open to visitors from December to April. Experience the best that the ICEHOTEL Sweden has to offer on this special short break inclusive of exclusive room upgrades including one incredible night in an individually themed, hand carved Art Suite ice room, private transfers and hand picked winter activities. Speak to a Regent Sweden Specialist for more information.
Depart London Heathrow and fly to Kiruna in Sweden via Stockholm. On arrival in Kiruna take a private transfer to the ICEHOTEL and check in for a three-night stay. Your first and second night will be in a Kaamos Superior warm hotel room and your final night will be in an exclusive Art Suite ice room in the ICEHOTEL. For those not wanting to sleep in the ICEHOTEL, spend three nights in the warm room instead. This evening, why not indulge in your favourite drink at the unique and very cool ICEBAR?
After breakfast, enjoy a tour of the ICEHOTEL and of ICEHOTEL 365, which opened in 2016 as a permanent structure. Marvel at the spectacular ice-sculpted suites, designed and created by artists from all over the world. In the evening enjoy an thrilling snowmobile ride into the night-time wilderness where the northern lights shine brightest. A guide will explain both the folklore and science surrounding this magical natural phenomenon and there will be ample opportunities to stop for photographs. Part way through the evening a stop will be made at a warm wilderness cabin where you will enjoy a two-course dinner. (B, D)
Enjoy breakfast and then check out of your warm room before embarking on an exhilarating husky safari including lunch. Tonight you will spend a night in your very own Art Suite, the ICEHOTEL's individually designed and sculpted thematic suites. Staying in one of these suites is truly a unique and once in a lifetime experience - come spring, they will melt away, never to be replicated again! During the day, your luggage is stored safely for you in the Riverside Lobby, the warm building close to the ICEHOTEL. Your bed will have a thick mattress that rests on a wooden base. The bed is covered with reindeer hides and you will sleep in a thermal sleeping bag provided for you by ICEHOTEL. (B,L)
You will be woken this morning with a hot cup of lingonberry juice at your bedside. Enjoy a relaxing sauna session and shower before breakfast. Spend the morning at leisure or take part in an optional excursion before making your way to the airport for the flight back to the UK via Stockholm. Speak to your Regent Sweden Specialist about extending your holiday and spending a night in Sweden's capital. (B)
