Christmas Holidays – Calender 2018

Christmas celebrations start already in November with the local village fair and traditional Christmas smorgasbord and fun winter adventures in the snow clad forests.

While the hotel and its suites are an experience in itself, ICEHOTEL offers a wide range of activities and happenings to create a Christmas Adventure of a lifetime –  head out on a northern lights hike or photography workshop, join a class in ice sculpting or Nordic wilderness survival, feed the reindeer or go dog sledding.
