thrilling holiday with a difference.
Each December, using the skills of several
different Scandinavian ice sculptors, the
celebrated Ice Hotel is crafted from 30,000
tons of snow and ice. The entire structure
melts away each spring. Each year’s design
differs, the final detail being revealed only
when the last ice block is in place and the
last bedroom finished.
The hotel consists of Absolut Bar, art gallery,
consecrated chapel, ‘hall of pillars’ and a
choice of snow rooms, ice rooms or art
suites all sculpted from ice. Guests sleep in
special thermal Arctic sleeping bags on
frame beds topped with reindeer skins.
The wider complex also includes a
restaurant serving traditional Lappish food
and “warm accommodation” of differing
types. There are ‘Kaamos’ rooms with
private wc/shower; 10 Nordic chalets with
two bedrooms (one double and one with
bunk beds) kitchenette and private
shower/wc and 20 Northen Lights cabins.
The latter have one double and one single
bedroom, private wc/shower and skylights
through which you can see the stars of the
Arctic night.
All cabin types are of an identical standard
with respect to furnishings and decor.
Our ‘Ice Safari’ takes you up to the Ice
Hotel in Swedish Lapland on early morning
scheduled flights with SAS via Stockholm
for a three night stay to which you can add
your excursions on a ‘pick and mix’ basis
