TreeHotel and ICEHOTEL Earth and Water

Combining a stay at two of the most unique hotels in Sweden, this experience will take you to the Treehotel and the ICEHOTEL. Located in the natural forest of Harads, 90km north-west of Luleå, the Treehotel is the childhood dream of Kent and Brittas Lindvall which has now become reality. With extraordinary tree rooms created by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects a stay here can be as relaxing or as adventurous as you want. Without a doubt, it will be an unforgettable experience. The small village of Jukkasjärvi is located 284km north of Harads and it is here, that, for the past 29 winters, the world famous ICEHOTEL has been created out of snow and ice. A momentary art project, a stay here and an overnight in sub-zero temperatures is one that will be engraved on your memory for a lifetime.

This four-hour excursion will, almost silently, traverse through forests and across frozen lakes. Relax in the comfort of your seat or try your hand at mushing. Light refreshments will be served in a wilderness hut whilst the guide tells stories about the huskies and the traditional way of life and of survival techniques used in the area. Return to the ICEHOTEL for some free time.

This evening, we have included a Northern Lights tour by shared snowmobile.  This 4 hour excursion takes you on a journey through the Arctic wilderness and includes a three course evening meal. Away from the artificial lights of the village, you heighten your chance of seeing the Lady Aurora’s colourful waves in the skies above.  Overnight stay in warm accommodation at the ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjarvi.

Departures: Daily year-round including a stay in the ICEHOTEL 365 (excluding the winter experiences). The temporary ICEHOTEL will open on 15 December 2017. 

Notes:
Of course, we cannot guarantee a sighting with a natural phenomenon such as the Aurora Borealis but we have a few tips to help you increase your chances of a sighting.

  • Leave the artifical lights of the city behind.
  • Choose excursions which offer the opportunity to 'chase' or 'search' for the Northern Lights. These tend to have a higher success rating.
  • Travel at the time of the new moon when the sky is at its darkest.
  • Stay as long as you can. Four nights or longer is ideal.
  • But, above all we would recommend that you book a tour that includes an activity, or a visit to a region of spectacular natural beauty, so that you have a wonderful evening regardless of a sighting.
