ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjärvi

Sustainability is at the core of this unique hotel located in the Arctic Circle, on the bank of Sweden’s largest river, Torne.

Built entirely from ice from the river, this hotel, spread over 2,100 square metres, is reshaped each year with new artists designing the rooms. When the temperature rises during spring, it melts and returns to the river. As of last year, however, the hotel will be open 365 days a year meaning you will be able to attend activities such as dogsledding and boat trips beneath the midnight sun. 

The new addition, ICEHOTEL 365, has 10 luxury suites, 12 art suites designed by selected artists, an ice bar and gallery, all run on solar power.
