The Ice Hotel in Sweden

4 Dec

The Ice Hotel is situated on the shores of the Torne River, in the old village of Jukkasjarvi in Swedish Lapland.

Transportation by air to and/or from Kiruna, Sweden can only be arranged as part of total trans-Atlantic air packages. We do not sell air travel for intra-European or intra-Scandinavia flights unless combined with air tickets from the USA on SAS. Rail transportation may be arranged only in certain situations or if in conjunction with a Stockholm package.

Most weekend nights and holiday periods are already full. The best availability at the Ice Hotel is Monday – Wednesday nights. Please try to give us a range of dates you are willing to travel.

Staying at the ice hotel is a must for the modern adventurer, an experience utterly unlike other hotel stays. Inside, the temperature is never colder than -5 degrees to -8 degrees celsius, regardless of how cold it may be outside. Unique rooms are decorated with ice art and sculptures. You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a special bed of snow and ice, on reindeer skins. Don’t forget to visit the Ice Church, the Absolute Ice Bar, and the Ice Sauna!

The Ice Hotel is located in Jukkasjarvi, Lapland in northern Sweden. It is on the 68th parallel about 120 km south of the North Pole.

The Ice Hotel is completely made of ice. The architecture changes from year to year but the concept remains the same, ice, all ice.
