Located in Jukkasjärvi, in the heart of the unspoiled wilderness of Swedish Lapland, stands the world famous and original ICEHOTEL. For the last 28 years, each winter a unique and breathtaking sculpture has taken form on the banks of the River Torne; a structure where everything from the artwork, to the chairs you sit on, the beds you sleep on, and the glass in your hand has been made using carefully harvested, crystal clear ice from the neighbouring river.
 
In November 2016, the ICEHOTEL launched a new 365 day concept, allowing guests to experience sleeping on ice all year round in a specially designed permanent building.  During winter, the exterior looks similar to that of the original ICEHOTEL structure but in summer it has a grass covered roof adorned with Arctic mountain flowers and kept cool by several solar panels.

A stay at this exquisite property is guaranteed to be one that you will never forget.
