The Ice Rooms at the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi include unique hand crafted artwork and furniture made of ice (the Ice Rooms offer less ice art than the Art Suites). You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a bed built of snow and ice, and on reindeer skins which will keep you warm and comfortable.
The Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi was Scandinavia’s first ice hotel and has been re-built yearly since 1989 from snow and blocks of ice from the Torne River. Over the years the Ice Hotel has changed from an igloo of 60 square meters to the world’s largest hotel of ice and snow at about 5500 square meters.
After a day of adventures, nightfall approaches quickly. The outdoor temperature drops and when you step inside the Ice Hotel, you feel a rush of warm air. Inside, the temperature is never colder than -5 °C to -8 °C, regardless of how cold it may be outside. It will soon be time to climb into bed.
Please note that you will not be able to take your personal belongings into the Ice Hotel as they will freeze. They will be stored in the warm service building next door to the Ice Hotel where you will also find the bathroom areas and sauna.
Staying at an ice hotel is a must for the modern adventurer – an experience utterly unlike any other hotel stays.
Breakfast buffet, morning sauna and towels are included.
