Visit Icehotel

Visit any day of the year

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.

Icehotel Winter open December - April

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