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. Exciting winter activities are available from dogsled tours to northern lights photography adventures. This itinerary includes two-nights in a warm room and one-night in the ICEHOTEL spent at -5°C. 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 warm hotel room and your final night will be in an Ice Room in the ICEHOTEL. Speak to a Regent Sweden Specialist about upgrading to an Art Suite or for those not wanting to sleep in the ICEHOTEL, spend three nights in the warm room instead.
After breakfast, enjoy a tour of the ICEHOTEL and of ICEHOTEL 365, which opened in 2016 as a permanent structure.
