ice hotel jukkasjarvi sweden
A hotel and art exhibition made of ice from the river Torne, each year reincarnated in a brand new design. A place to discover silence, northern lights, glistening snow clad forests, reindeer, cloudberries, kettle coffee and much more.
Icehotel Main Hall (2014) by Alessandro Falca & AnnaSofia Mååg. The Icehotel is a hotel rebuilt each year with snow and ice in the village of Jukkasjärvi, in northern Sweden, about 17 kilometres (11 mi) from Kiruna. It is the world's first ice hotel.
Welcome to the original ICEHOTEL. Founded in 1989 in the village of Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, ICEHOTEL is a hotel and an art exhibition with ever-changing art created in a new guise every winter, completely made out of natural ice from Torne River, one of Sweden’s national Rivers and last untouched waters.
A hotel and art exhibition made of ice from the river Torne, each year reincarnated in a brand new design. Icehotel is not only a cool (!) hotel. It is perhaps Sweden’s most unique art gallery, with yearly art exhibitions made of snow and ice.
From pick up at airport to dropping us back at airport went on very smoothly and as per schedule. The restaurant is very good with very good choice of menu and again, the staff were very friendly and polite. Ice Hotel (cold hotel) was amazing. Both the seasonal Ice Hotel and Ice Hotel 365 were absolutely amazing and our night at Hotel 365 was great.
The ICEHOTEL is built each year in the tiny town of Jukkasjärvi, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Madness it may be, but this unique, world-famous ice hotel is a totally inspiring venture.
A stay at the Ice hotel is unique, and has to be experienced in one's life. Two things get you awe-struck: one, that one part of the hotel/rooms are rebuilt every year, and two, you get adjusted to the feeling that -5C is actually warm. We had stayed in one of the cabins, as the ice hotel rooms were fully booked.
The village is a popular tourist accommodation during the winter months, from December until April, and is best known for its annual ice hotel, a hotel literally made from ice. The wooden church is the oldest building in the village (built around 1607/1608) and is well known for its wooden carved altar piece triptych by Bror Hjorth.
