This is an incredible, bucket-list VIP experience with private activities & a private guide so that you can enjoy this work-of-art wonderland all to yourself.
Fun fact: our partner produced an Iceberg Runway for Chanel's Autumn/Winter 2010 show!
Every year when the winter comes, the pristine waters the meandering of Torne River slow down and freeze into ice. On one chilly day in 1989, the first ever Ice hotel was hand-sculpted out of these massive ice blocks harvested from this very river running alongside. Today, over three decades later, this beauty has become a must-visit Swedish landmark for travellers from all parts of the globe.
Each winter since the first and the original hotel was built, passionate artists gather in the modest town of Jukkasjäarvi to build a new rendition of this Arctic wonder. When the spring comes, the hotel is then left to melt and find its way back to nature. Each coming winter brings a one-of-a-kind version of this work of art, promising a new set of treasured memories just waiting to unfold in this stunning Swedish destination.
This experience is a bucket list staple for every Arctic adventure. How this Swedish landmark is creatively redesigned and reborn each winter season is truly a treat to the senses. But the real experience lies in staying a night here. Accommodation in the seasonal winter hotel ranges from standard ice rooms to more elegant art suites. Ice rooms are furnished with décor and beds made of ice. Art suites, on the other hand, offer an even more special experience – staying in a room uniquely designed by commissioned artists from all over the world. By its nature, each suite is ephemeral and has never previously been created.
Thankfully, whatever the season, there is an extraordinary experience awaiting anyone who visits. As the first permanent ice and snow hotel ever to be built, guests can now enjoy this unique Arctic adventure all year round. Have you ever imagined yourself sleeping in a room built out of ice? This and so much more are prepared for you in the massive 2100 square meter ice hall. Among the exciting attractions and activities that await are an art exhibit featuring hand-carved ice sculptures, a five-course menu highlighting Scandinavian delicacies, and the famous Ice Bar, which serves drinks in unique ice-carved glasses. Can a trip to the north get any cooler than this?
