Snow & Ice Rooms

Snow Rooms are built in the shape of a traditional igloo and sleep up to 4 people. There are generally only two or three of these built in any one year. Ice Rooms are slightly larger than Snow Rooms, typically designed with a double bed and some ice ‘furniture’ for decoration. Generally for two people although there are a limited number that can sleep 3.

1st Day UK – Stockholm

fly direct to Stockholm’s Arlanda airport and meet your private driver guide who will take you into the city for a night at either the Hotel Clara or Lydmar.

2nd Day Stockholm – Swedish Lapland

After breakfast you’ll be collected by your driver and taken to out to Arlanda for the short flight up to Swedish Lapland and the village of Jukkasarvi. Check in and have a light lunch at Hembygsdsgarden (The Old Homestead) before collecting your thermal clothing and taking a guided tour of the ICEHOTEL. After some brief downtime its time to for a frozen river snowmobile safari. (Modern Polaris 4 stroke machines with their low centre of gravity are easy and safe to drive, controlled for acceleration and braking from the handle bar, and have a 'kill switch' to shut down the engine in emergencies). Scoot along the river to a wilderness encampment for some traditional Sami salmon soup before winding your way back to the hotel for a truly adventurous night sleeping on Ice. Choose between an Art Suite with its three dimensional original artwork or a Northern Lights Room with a bed carved out inside a wall sculpture made of ‘snice’.

3rd Day ICEHOTEL Adventures

Wake up to a mug of hot lingonberry juice, a sauna to warm up your bones and breakfast in the ICEHOTEL restaurant. Then transfer the short distance across the river to Kenth & Fjellborg & Taisto Thorneus’s husky kennels for a mush through the forest with a stop en-route for sooty coffee and cake round an open fire. Whisk back to the ICEHOTEL and after a quick turn round, travel out to Nils Torbjorn’s reindeer encampment for a short sled ride through the forest, finished off with suovas (dried smoked reindeer) and some tales of Nils’ extraordinary life journey as a reindeer herder and custodian of Sami culture. Spend the final night of your stay in a heated Arctic Cabin and take supper in the ICEHOTEL restaurant which has Sami inspired speciality table d’hote and a la carte menus served up on ICE plates!

4th Day Swedish Lapland - UK

take breakfast and take a look around the village with its collection of wooden buildings and at, the dead end Marknadsvagen, Jukkasarvi’s red ochre wooden church with its colourful triptych. Parts of the building date back to the 17th century and hidden under the nave are the mummified remains of villagers preserved from the 18th. Then transfer to Kiruna airport for your return flight to the UK via Stockholm.
