Excursion to Icehotel in Swedish Lapland


11 h

Full day

Levi, Lapland







Visit the World's Number 1 Snow and Ice hotel.

In this cross-border excursion, our destination is the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland. Travel time from Levi to Jukkasjarvi is about 4 hours one way. Excursion duration, including lunch, is about 3 hours.

Icehotel is the world's most famous hotel and an art exhibition made of ice and snow. Founded in 1989, it is reborn in a new guise every winter. Since 2016 a whole new ice experience is to be enjoyed alongside the classic Icehotel experience.

ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent structure and year-round ice experience in 2,100 m2 with 20 luxury suites, each with a heated area of private relaxation and bathroom, art suites, all sculptured by selected artists, ice bar that serves champagne and drinks, as well as an ice gallery – all created out of snow and ice.

Around 30,000 liters of water from Torne River has transformed into snow and several tons of ice have been harvested from the river to create both parts of Icehotel. This ice experience is cooled by solar panels during the summer months. Icehotel is an art symposium in a class of its own. The energy released here when creative people from a wide variety of backgrounds and places meet the ice is almost tangible. Each year some 40 artists are taking part in Icehotel.

The name Jukkasjärvi comes from a Sami word that roughly translates as "meeting place by the water", as the village was historically an important marketplace. At Icehotel, too, meetings take center stage – the meetings between Jukkasjärvi residents and visitors, between different cultures, between people and nature, and between ice and creativity. At the end of the visit, you will have lunch in IceHotel's restaurant, after which you'll start your way back home.
