The Icehotel must be the "coolest" place in the world to spend the night. It´s located in the tiny town of Jukkasjärvi, 200 km north of the Atlantic Circle. The project started in already in 1989. Every winter since then, ice is cut from the frozen Torne River. Builders and artists start working on the gigantic ice blocks in October and at the end of all cutting and sculpting, in December, you get an ice hotel and an ice bar. And every spring the whole building melts! This means that there is a brand new hotel and art installation ever year.

Most people who come to experience the Icehotel stay one night in an ice room and one or more nights in our warm and comfortable Kaamos hotel rooms. This gives you plenty of time to explore the art inside the hotel, as well as joining a couple of activities and just taking in the surroundings.
Here are some of the activies that you can do: a northern lights excursion on snowmobile, an ice sculpting class with a professional instructor, ice fishing, husky sleighing, moose watching, snowmobile safari, enjoying the delicious four-course Swedish Cuisine ice menu and, of course, the sleeping on ice experience. A truly unforgettable travel experience!
