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, the ICEHOTEL is open to visitors from December to April.
Experience the best that the ICEHOTEL Sweden has to offer on this special short break which features fantastic room upgrades including one incredible night in an individually themed, hand crafted Art Suite ice room, private transfers and carefully selected winter activities.
Speak to a Regent Sweden specialist for more information. If you want to combine your stay at the ICEHOTEL with a night or two in Kiruna - consider adding Camp Ripan to your holiday to Sweden. We love the The Spa Ritual Stävan at the Aurora Spa.
Fly from the UK to Kiruna and transfer to the ICEHOTEL to check in. Tonight will be spent in an exclusive, individually designed and sculpted thematic Art Suite ice room. A stay in one of these suites is truly a unique and once in a lifetime experience - come spring, they melt away, never to be replicated again!
During the day, luggage is stored safely in the Riverside Lobby, the warm building close to the ICEHOTEL. The ice beds are covered in a thick mattress which rests on a wooden base and is covered in reindeer hides and a thermal sleeping bag to ensure a cosy sleep.
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. Then, head out on an exhilarating husky safari across the snowy plains. Delight in the freedom of being pulled by an energetic team of dogs, driven by your musher/guide. Enjoy a wilderness lunch before returning to the hotel and checking into your warm room. (B,L)
After breakfast, we recommend a visit to the Experience room followed by a self-guided tour of the ICEHOTEL and ICEHOTEL 365. Marvel at the spectacular ice-sculpted suites, designed and created by artists from all over the world. In the evening enjoy a thrilling snowmobile ride into the night-time wilderness where the northern lights shine brightest. 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)
Spend the morning at leisure or take part in an optional excursion before transferring to the airport for your flight home. (B)
