  • Day 2: The ICEHOTEL and visit to a Reindeer Farm

    Today, you will enjoy a guided tour of the fascinating ICEHOTEL complex, including the original snow-and-ice structure that is rebuilt each winter and a new permanent structure, the ICEHOTEL 365, which offers a year-round winter experience inside thanks to solar energy. You’ll be able to see an assortment of ice rooms and ice suites as well as the chic ICEBAR, ice church and other creative works of ice and snow.

    In the afternoon you will be picked up and taken on a tour to a Sami reindeer farm for a close encounter with Rudolf and his friends, followed by a traditional snack in a Sami teepee. Try driving a reindeer sled! You will get the opportunity to learn about the daily lives and history of the Sami people, the native people of northern Scandinavia.

    OPTIONAL: Overnight at the Icehotel
    An overnight at the ICEHOTEL is like living in a fairytale! Snuggle up with your sweetheart on top of soft reindeer skins on a bed made of snow and ice. Regardless of whether you spend the night in the new or original structure, the temperature inside is kept at around - 5°C (21°F) at all times. But no worries! You will receive a thermal sleeping bag to keep you warm and handy tips from ICEHOTEL staff on how to sleep comfortably in your own ice room or suite, on soft reindeer skins atop a bed made of ice. In the morning, wake up to a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside and enjoy a hearty breakfast in the restaurant followed by a refreshing trip to the sauna.

  • Day 3: Dogsled Ride

    Today, a skilled musher will pick you up at the hotel for a thrilling Husky sled experience. You will learn to drive your own dog team of four dogs through the breathtaking Lapland landscape. Two people share one sled and take turns in driving. The dogs howl and pull at their harnesses to get moving; as soon as the anchor is lifted, the dogs fall silent and eagerly start pulling the sled through the woods and over the plains. During the break, around the fire, you will be served coffee and a light lunch.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Everything went smoothly

Cicci Erikson customized our trip exactly the way we wanted, every thing went smoothly, the employees at Kiruna tours were very friendly and cordial, I would recommend Nordic Visitor to my friends and will use them in the future.

Worked perfectly well without any glitches

My Travel Consultant Ms. Cecilia Markov was extremely helpful and professional in all aspects of dealing with the customer. Her invaluable assistance allowed me to choose, modify, and combine the existing tours to fulfill all my needs. The hotel locations were excellent and the arrangements made by Ms. Cecilia Markov ensured that everything worked perfectly well without any glitches. I would strongly recommend such excellent services to anyone who would like to have an unforgettably pleasant holiday.

Suggestions were all great for limited time

Jennie, our agent, was fantastic. She sorted everything out in the limited time we had in Kiruna and her suggestions to fit in as much as we did in three days were all great.
