Activities at Icehotel
Risks, dangers, and hazards such as loss of property or injuries are inherent to the very nature of wilderness activities. While Icehotel and our certified sub-contractors put the quality, comfort, and safety of our guests first, all participation in wilderness activities such as snowmobiling or dog sledding is at its own risk.
Book in advance
We recommend that you book your activities at least three weeks prior to your stay, to ensure that there is space for you on the excursions that you are interested in.
Our standards and practice
The tours always include top-quality equipment and our guides are trained in wilderness safety and touring in Arctic climate year-round. Your tour begins with an introduction and safety demonstration by the guide. All outdoor activities are weather dependent and may be canceled or replaced by more suitable alternatives should the conditions not permit to run the tour as planned. The snow depth at the beginning and end of the season determines start and finish dates for activities.
All tours start and finish at Icehotel Meeting Point, Jukkasjärvi if nothing else is stated in the activity. Please note that there must be a minimum of two adults booked per tour, as it otherwise will be canceled. Please note that other guests can be booked on the same tour.
Never shower, wash your face or put on water-based creams or make-up before going out on an excursion as this means you remove the skin’s natural protective layer of oil and you are more exposed to the cold. We also recommend you calculate for some “warm time” between activities, for you to go inside for a couple of hours, change clothing if necessary and reheat.
