As a guest you will fall asleep to the smell of forest and whisper of wind passing through the treetops. In the morning you will wake up to the sound of birds.


The ICEHOTEL in northern Sweden is truly a once in a lifetime experience! Inside the hotel, the temperature is never lower than 23 Fahrenheit, regardless of how cold it may be outside. Dress in warm thermal underwear, put on a hat and slip into the cozy sleeping bag. The day after, you are awakened in the morning with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside. Breakfast buffet, morning sauna, and towels are included in your stay. You can now visit the ICEHOTEL year round with the launch of ICEHOTEL 365, a permanent structure which includes luxury suites, each with private relax and bathroom, and art suites, all sculptured by selected artists. This ice experience can be visited year-round and is cooled by solar panels during the summer months.
