ICEHOTEL

A hotel and art exhibition made of ice from the river Torne, each year reincarnated in a brand new design. A place to discover silence, northern lights, glistening snow-clad forests, reindeer, cloudberries, kettle coffee and much more. Icehotel is the world’s first hotel made of ice and snow. Founded in 1989, it is reborn in a new guise every winter, in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi – 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. The Torne River, the arts, and creating a setting for life-enriching moments are at the heart of it all.

Spending a night in Icehotel is a surreal experience and a memory for life and in the morning you are awakened with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside. The art suites are part of the new concept Icehotel 365, available all year round thanks to a new specially designed building run on solar power.

Cold room – Deluxe Suite 365

The largest suite features a heated relaxation area with designed en-suite bathroom. Each suite is individually themed and hand carved by artists commissioned from around the world and a wide range of disciplines.

 The Deluxe Suites are part of the new concept ICEHOTEL 365, available all year round thanks to a new specially designed building run on solar power.

The Deluxe Suites are our individually designed and sculpted thematic suites. The artists, perhaps from Kiruna, Germany, UK or the US have been picked from over two-hundred applicants and invited to make the suite you’ll be sleeping in. Each suite is unique and has never been created before.

Warm room – Arctic Chalet

 Arctic Chalets are traditionally Scandinavian with natural materials and colors. Rustic, simple and comfortable, this two bedroom apartment is decorated in natural materials and organic shades of dark blue, white and brown. 

The Arctic Chalet has a rustic character, with pine wood paneled walls, tiled floors and birchwood details complemented by shades of dark blue, grey and white.

Accommodation Insight

Icehotel is the world’s first hotel made of ice and snow. Founded in 1989, it is reborn in a new guise every winter, in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi – 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. The Torne River, the arts, and creating a setting for life-enriching moments are at the heart of it all.

 

This winter season there is big news— a whole new ice experience to be enjoyed alongside our classic Icehotel experience. ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent structure that will include luxury suites, each with private relax and bathroom, and art suites, all sculptured by selected artists. As well as a large ice bar that serves champagne, and an ice gallery. 

 

This ice experience can be visited year-round and is cooled by solar panels during the summer months.

 

When the first snow has sprinkled the whole of Jukkasjärvi with white, artists from all over the world come together in the village to take part in creating the art exhibition of snow, ice and light that makes up Icehotel.
