Visit the world’s first hotel made of ice that is rebuilt every year
The ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi, the world’s first hotel made of ice, is famous for its unique concept, its dazzling works of art and a fairy tale atmosphere. Located in the small arctic village of Jukkasjärvi, the ICEHOTEL is among Sweden’s top attractions and draws thousands of tourists to the Lapland region each year.
Every winter, the ICEHOTEL is completely rebuilt by artists from all over the world using snow and blocks of ice from the local Torne River. Among the hotel’s many features are the stylish reception area and main hall, the ice church and the chic ICEBAR. The hotel offers a variety of rooms, suites and chalets for more than 100 guests, including standard ‘warm’ accommodation as well as the signature ice rooms.
The new permanent structure, the ICEHOTEL 365, offers a year-round winter experience inside thanks to solar energy. You’ll be able to see and stay in an assortment of ice rooms and ice suites as well as the chic ICEBAR, ice church and other creative works of ice and snow.
The two ICEBARs in both the original and 365 structures are, like the ICEHOTELs, crafted entirely of ice and snow each year. In partnership with ABSOLUT, the décor in both , from chairs to glasses, are made from crystal clear ice from the Torne River.
The original ICEHOTEL is open from mid-December through April while the ICEHOTEL 365 is open all year round. Guided tours are available for visitors not staying at the hotel overnight.View Attractions
