ICEHOTEL is the world’s first and largest hotel built of snow and ice, and it is situated in Jukkasjärvi, a small village in northern Sweden with 1,100 residents and 1,000 dogs. Each winter, some 50,000 visitors from all over the world go to see ICEHOTEL to experience the tranquility, the northern lights and all of the activities offered in Europe’s last wilderness, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle.
Several rooms through the new concept ICEHOTEL 365 are now available all year round thanks to a new specially designed building run on solar power.
Between 10 am and 6 pm, ICEHOTEL is open to the public; for day visitors and guests to enjoy the art. This means overnight guests get their rooms at 6 pm and wake-up call is around 7:30 am when staying in a cold room.
If staying cold the day before or after staying in a warm room, there is 6-7 hours between checking out and getting access to your new room. Icehotel will store and move your luggage on request. Check-in is from 3 pm and check-out latest 11 am for warm rooms.
It is recommended you combine one night cold with a couple of nights warm, staying your first or last night cold. Also, activities, transfers and dining (Icehotel Restaurant & Homestead) should be pre-booked at least 3 weeks in advance because of limited availability.
