Staying at the world famous and iconic Icehotel in Swedish Lapland is truly a memorable experience. Icehotel is a hotel and an art exhibition with ever-changing art made out of ice and snow. The hotel is created in a new guise every winter, completely made out of natural ice from Torne River, one of Sweden’s national rivers and last untouched waters. The hotel is located in the small village of Jukkasjärvi with only 1000 inhabitants, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, and backs onto the river Torne. Both warm, and of course, cold rooms are on offer. The warm rooms are well-equipped with bright, modern and fresh furnishings typically Scandinavian in style with en-suite bathrooms. The ice rooms vary in design from simple, plain rooms to dramatic, artistic displays. Sleep on ice beds within a thermal sleeping bag, you will be quite cosy but if in the morning you feel a little chilled, you can warm up in the sauna. Washing facilities are located close to the ice rooms. Icehotel offers a variety of winter activities, two restaurants giving a choice of high-end gastronomy or more rustic fare, and the Absolute Bar. r.
