The worlds largest igloo, Sweden's famous 'Ice Hotel' is rebuilt every winter for holidays from December to April, within a complex that also includes cosy cabins and hotel rooms.

The Ice Hotel
The Ice Hotel offers double and family rooms plus suites decorated with beautiful ice sculptures. There is also the famous 'Absolut Ice Bar', an art gallery and chapel - plus a heated toilet block along the corridor.
The Absolut Ice Bar
The inside temperature is around -5c and guests sleep in thermal Arctic sleeping bags on ice beds covered in reindeer skins.
Ice Hotel Bed
A night in the Ice Hotel is an experience of a lifetime. Though fear not, you will be warm in your Ice Bed as you are provided with everything you need to stay warm.
Thermal clothing is provided
Breakfast is taken at the local inn which is just across the road, and lunch or dinner can also be taken there, or at another cosy restaurant nearby.
Cross-country skis and snowshoes can be hired, while kick-sleds are available free of charge.
The warm accommodation comprises stylish hotel rooms or two types of cabin, both types having a lounge, small kitchen area and shower/sc. The two bedroom Nordic cabins can sleep 4, with one double bedded room and one with bunk beds. The popular Aurora cabins have one double bedroom and one single, with sky-lights through which guests can watch the stars or the Northern Lights if weather conditions permit.
A Warm Cabin
All our holiday packages all include a night in the Ice Hotel and a night in a cabin or hotel room, plus an evening snowmobile safari in search of the Northern Lights, with dinner included.
You can start your adventure with a night in Stockholm, or a night in Narvik, in Northern Norway, and then travel into Sweden on the scenic Ofoten Railway.
