Booking Activities Practical Information
To give you a stay filled with adventure, we offer a wide range of activities
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.
About the tours
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 own risk.
We don’t recommend pregnant women or people with cardiovascular diseases to plunge into the hole in the ice during the sauna ritual.
Cross-country Skiing is not recommended for people with cardiovascular diseases.
You need to be at least 18 years old and have a driver's license to drive a snowmobile; otherwise you are welcome along as a passenger.
You need to be minimum 2 persons for the tour to run. Please note that other guests can be booked on the same tour.
Our standards and practice
The tours always include top quality equipment and our guides are trained in wilderness safety and touring in Arctic climate. Your tour begins with an introduction and safety demonstration by the guide. All outdoor activities are weather dependent and may be cancelled 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. Please note that there must be a minimum of two adults per tour, as it will otherwise be cancelled.
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 re-heat.
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.
