Perhaps best of all, visitors will be able to experience the magic of the ICEHOTEL by night, and yet enjoy the many memorable summer experiences which the region has to offer during the different seasons, such as fishing and river rafting. And while the aurora borealis (or Northern Lights) attracts thousands of visitors to the Arctic region in the darkness of midwinter, in fact the natural phenomenon can be seen from late August all the way through to early April. Aurora purists might argue that seeing it without the biting winter temperatures isn’t the real deal, but from experience there’s a lot to said for enjoying the dancing lights on a (relatively) mild evening when you don’t have to worry about the glass of wine in your hand suddenly freezing.
Sunvil offer a 4-night Earth and Water itinerary which includes 2 nights at The ICEHOTEL the 2 nights at the equally unusual, but magical, TreeHotel.
