The Art Suites at the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi are beautifully carved by hand and individually designed by handpicked artists from around the world. The ice art in the Art Suites are more intricate than the art in the Ice Rooms. 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. During 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.
The Art Suites are located in both the seasonal Ice Hotel and the Ice Hotel 365. The Ice Hotel 365 is a permanent structure located next to the Ice Hotel and offers the same standard, same interior shape and visual design as the original Ice Hotel. Our tour category GOLD includes an overnight in an Art Suite in the seasonal Ice Hotel. Should you prefer to spend the night in an Art Suite at Ice Hotel 365, please let us know and we will reduce the tour price accordingly.
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 other hotel stays.
Breakfast buffet, morning sauna and towels are included.
