Food & Drinks
Arctic culinary destination
Icehotel is ranked the top restaurant in Kiruna and top three in Swedish Lapland in White Guide; Scandinavia’s most comprehensible restaurant guide. Our international kitchen brigade puts a cosmopolitan twist to the local ingredients, sourced from the region’s rivers, mountains, marshes and forests. Here you can enjoy local dishes and unique drinks – all served on ice if you’d like to.
influences from nature
Sami culture and Swedish classics have all influenced Jukkasjärvi and the food at Icehotel. Flavors of nature, lingonberries, cloudberries and fir are combined with reindeer, moose and Arctic char.
The dining room in Icehotel Restaurant is warm and traditional – an escape from the sub-zero degrees, but still letting our ice and surroundings take center stage. Choose from the a la carte menu or try our specially crafted dining experience – the ice menu.
At the Veranda we serve a twelve course menu cooked in front of the guests. This food experience welcome our guests “home” to Icehotel and also home to Sweden.
You are invited to sit down at the huge wooden table with the rest of the guests. Two chefs from the Icehotel brigade cook and serve a twelve-course menu with accompanying beverages in front of you. While you enjoy the food, the chefs talk about the produce.
The old homestead
The rustic Homestead has a special place in the heart of Jukkasjärvi locals. In the timbered building dating back to 1768, which is also a museum, an open fire is crackling in winter, and the porch overlooking the calm passing of Torne river is a welcome spot for drinks and meals in summer.
It's very popular amongst both guests and locals so make sure to book your spot in good time.
Sip on a delicious cocktail or have a glass of Champagne – obviously the glasses are made entirely out of ice. Dance on a floor made of snow and do some late night mingling with visitors from near and far that have all traveled to this little bar by the Torne River.
You find our ice bar in the permanent part of Icehotel, open every day year round.
Located behind the lobby, our lounge is open December to April, serving light snacks, hot drinks, cocktails and beers. Bring your book, a deck of cards or make some new friends between excursions or while your room is ready for check-in.
