The ICEHOTEL® 365
The ICEHOTEL® in Jukkasjarvi is the original snow and ice (“snice”) hotel and is undoubtedly one of Northern Scandinavia’s most fascinating sites. Until recently it has always been necessary to brave the sub-zero temperatures of winter if you want to visit or stay. Happily, for anybody who doesn’t like the cold, there is now a permanent ICEHOTEL® 365 which is open every day of the year.
What’s more, you don’t even have to sleep in a cold room as you can upgrade to one of the lovely, warm rooms, chalets and suites on site for the duration of your stay.
It is important to remember that the ICEHOTEL® also has a “normal” warm side to it. Inside the main warm building you’ll find a relaxing lounge area, a bar, dressing room, restaurant and the gift shop which sells ICEHOTEL® themed gifts and locally sourced handicrafts.
Meals are served in the warm restaurant. The breakfast buffet provides plenty of hot and cold choice to fortify you for the day ahead. Please note that dinner reservations must be made in advance and can be done through us.
If you are spending the night in one of the suites then you’ll change in the facilities provided at the Riverside Lobby next to the main building before walking over to ICEHOTEL® 365 (approx. 60 to 80 metres).
ICEHOTEL® 365 – Cold Accommodation:
Accommodation at ICEHOTEL® 365 consists of 9 Deluxe Suites and 11 Art Suites. Ice artists from all over the world come to Jukkasjarvi to create these rooms and no two suites are the same. The expertise and skill is remarkable and each artisan carves his or her own unique vision into each room.
Temperatures inside the suites sit constantly between -5°C and -8°C and, we know that sounds cold but, without any wind chill factor, it’s really very tolerable. This is especially the case when you are lying on your comfortable bed, insulated from the cold by a reindeer skins and a thermal sleeping bag.
There are also lockers where you can leave your valuables overnight as well as toilets, showers and, rather temptingly, a sauna. The warm building also has a small number of bunk beds in case you decide your ice room is not for you.
Deluxe Ice Suites 365 (upgrade):
All deluxe suites are individually themed and come equipped with a heated relaxation area.
