ICEHOTEL listed as one of the best places in the world by TIME Magazine

The American TIME Magazine published “TIME Magazine’s 2018 World’s Greatest Places” on August 23, 2018, and the year-round open ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, made it on the list.

Time Magazine’s “2018 World’s Greatest Places” lists 100 places all over the world and is the first annual list of the World’s Greatest Places. TIME solicited nominations across a variety of categories—such as museums, parks, bars, restaurants, theme parks, cruises, and hotels—from editors and correspondents around the world as well as industry experts. Then they evaluated each one based on key factors, including quality, originality, innovation, sustainability, and influence.

– ICEHOTEL is creating immense interest, year after year, from guests as well as press and media, and we are really proud of being on this list, says Josefin Lindberg, Press and PR Manager at ICEHOTEL.
Here is the nomination in TIME Magazine:
“There’s no hotel quite like Sweden’s new Icehotel 365, whose suites—featuring ice sculptures of animals, staircases and more—remain open all year. To prevent melting, the structure relies on solar-powered controls, which keep temperatures at 23°F. By day, guests can unwind in a hot sauna or take a dogsled ride; by night, they can sip on arctic-inspired cocktails at the hotel bar, which is also made of ice.” —Megan McCluskey, TIME Magazine.

– We are really proud and happy to be a part of Time Magazine’s list. It confirms that the experiences we create at ICEHOTEL are world-class and that there is a huge interest for unique experiences and sustainable nature tourism above the Arctic Circle in Sweden, says Christophe Risenius, CEO at ICEHOTEL.

On December 14, the seasonal part of ICEHOTEL opens for the 29th year.
