Planning a trip to Sweden? Book a stay at the ICEHOTEL and experience the infamous Northern Lights from one of the best spots in the world.
Located just 200km north of the Arctic Circle in a small village called Jukkasjarvi, this hotel is said to offer its guests the best possible chance to witness this incredible phenomenon – a spectacle of dancing colours in the mid-winter darkness.

Guided tours leave the hotel at 11pm every night and return by 2am. Locations vary, depending on the weather. Reservations can be booked on the day (before 10pm).


When you’re not catching a guided Northern Lights tour at midnight, there’s plenty to explore at the hotel. Brave the freezing temperatures in your very own ice room (pictured), take an ice sculpting class or mingle with guests at the ABSOLUT ICEBAR JUKKASJÄRVI while sipping colourful ice drinks.
