Overview

"A sensory extravaganza" (Fodor's) is what you can expect at the Icehotel, a unique lodging which combines a modern permanent structure with artist-designed igloo-style quarters rebuilt annually using ice from the nearby Torne River. It's an eco-friendly hotel set in a remote Arctic village with easy access to a range of winter sports, including skiing, fishing and sledding, and well placed for excursions to see the colourful Northern Lights. Nutti Sámi Siida wildlife park is a few minutes' drive away and Kiruna, Sweden's northernmost town, takes 20 minutes to reach by car.

The Icehotel's interior has an "ephemeral beauty" (The Daily Telegraph); it is recreated each year by a different group of international artists, and includes an ice-sculpted reception area, a wedding chapel, and a bar with glasses made from ice and a snow-covered dance floor. For those looking to warm up, there's also a heated restaurant serving local delicacies such as moose and reindeer, and a candle-lit lounge bar providing light snacks, hot drinks and cocktails. The neighbouring Homestead restaurant, a rustic-style eatery housed in a 19th-century timber building, provides hearty fare and features an open fireplace and a riverside porch. Breakfast is complimentary.

Accommodation at the Icehotel includes 'cold' rooms made from ice, alongside Scandinavian-style permanent 'warm' rooms. The former units have ice-built beds with thermal sleeping bags and reindeer hides, as well as shared single-sex changing rooms, bathrooms and saunas. Individually designed suites add relaxation areas and heated private bathrooms; some are available all year round. Permanent 'warm' rooms are decorated in soft neutral tones with wood-panelled walls, and include Wi-Fi, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. The hotel also houses 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, which come with kitchenettes and lounge areas.
