2018/2019 Departures: Daily, December 13 – April 13

For an exotic experience like no other, spend the night in a hotel made entirely of ice and snow! The ICEHOTEL is located in Swedish Lapland, above the Arctic Circle. Each winter, it is built with a new design and new rooms, created with 30,000 tons of snice (snow and ice) and 1,000 tons of crystal clear ice from the nearby Torne River. The temperature in the ICEHOTEL ranges between -4 and -9 C, depending on the temperature outside and the number of overnight guests. This unique structure is truly a work of art – it even has its own Ice Bar (yes, made of snow & ice). On a clear night in the peaceful north, there is a good chance to see the infamous Northern Lights dancing in the sky. For a taste of the Arctic in the summer, you can stay at the ICEHOTEL 365 which also features cold rooms with beautifully carved ice work all year long.
