Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden

Hotels made exclusively of ice are no longer a novelty, but so beautiful that I could not ignore the new appearing. The oldest of them, and the highest “Icehotel” in Sweden. It was first built 25 years ago in Jukkasjärvi, a small town in the north of the country with 1,100 residents and 1,000 dogs.

This inspiring and totally ‘cool’ hotel offers an experience never to be forgotten. Warm accommodation is provided in a selection of hotel rooms and stylish chalets, complemented by the Icehotel accommodation comprising of around 50 snow and ice rooms plus individually designed Art Suites. Surprisingly, you’ll find ‘sleeping on ice’ is far more comfortable than it may sound!

Snow Rooms & Suites at the Icehotel
The thought of sleeping on ice for some is an intriguing prospect. In addition, with a snuggly sleeping bag and some spectacular designs to enjoy, we are sure it will be a night you will remember! Each room has an ice bed – a large block of illuminated ice upon which sits a thick mattress, a layer of reindeer skins, and a thickly-padded polar sleeping bag so you won’t need to wear layers and layers of night clothes. There are several different types of ice accommodation – their size and what they contain sets them apart.

Warm Rooms at the Icehotel
Although an overnight in an ice room is what most come here to experience, with outdoor temperatures often hitting the -30°C mark and the Icehotel kept at a ‘balmy’ -5°C (!), it is essential to have somewhere to ‘come in from the cold.’ Fortunately, there are several warm room options on site and the facilities are excellent.

Most stays at the Icehotel are a minimum of three nights with two spent in warm accommodation. However, if you’d prefer to spend your entire stay in a warm room, or have one as back up whilst on your ‘ice night’, do speak to our reservations team. It is not always possible to determine in advance which of your nights at the Icehotel will be spent in warm accommodation – generally this will be allocated on arrival.
