Lemmel Pimpel Open 2017

We are happy to welcome you to Lemmel Pimpel Open in Jukkasjärvi April 21-22 2017 – for the third consecutive year. Somewhere on the edge between an ice fishing contest and a festival, the holes are once again drilled through the Torne River ice.

Ice fishing and Torne River Swimming

On Saturday the ice fishing contest begins and you have the chance to win some of the exclusive prizes such as “A mother’s dream”. Visit our market, held on the square between Icehotel 365 and Icehotel 27 and buy yourself a souvenir from Icehotel Shop, Mora Kniv and other vendors.

New for this year is the swimmig contest ”Icehotel Waiting for Summer Swim” that takes place not only on, but in, Torne River on Saturday – the same spot where the crystal clear ice has been harvested for the next ICEHOTEL just a few days earlier. You can choose between swimming 25 meter “lemming swim” or 50 meter “freestyle”.
