Visit Icehotel

Visit any day


The original and world-famous Ice hotel is open year-round and we offer a hotel and ephemeral art exhibition in a unique natural cycle, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. The story of Icehotel starts in 1989 when it became the world’s first and largest hotel made of ice and snow.


Each year the winter hotel is reincarnated in a new guise, carefully designed and handcrafted by around 40 artists from all around the world.


Since 2016 Icehotel has expanded with a permanent structure as a complement to the winter hotel; which has made it possible for guests to enjoy the splendid art of ice year-round. 


We are temporarily closed April 14 - June 30

We will be closing winter season slightly earlier than usual this year, and hold off the start of the summer season in these unprecedented times. Thus we will not be taking any bookings during the time period April 14 - June 30. We hope to be able to open up and welcome visitors later this summer so keep an eye out here and follow us on Facebook for all the latest updates.

Guided tours


Get a guided tour of the innovative hotel made of ice and snow which is also one of Sweden’s largest and most unique private art exhibitions. 

The guided tour runs during 30-45 minutes where the guide tells all about the work, history, and creation behind the art. You'll have access to explore the hotel on your own accord for the rest of the day, perhaps try an ice drink in the ice bar and marvel over the crystal clear ice.

The guided tours are available daily in winter starting on the opening day of the winter hotel. Contact us for special arrangements for groups, year-round at [email protected].
