Meetings & events

Memorable events

Crystal clear ice and the Arctic landscape make for a glistening stage to host memorable events. The Torne River ice has represented Sweden all over the world, from Chanel’s catwalk in Paris to the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm, and it makes up the world famous Icehotel, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle.

Film premier, competition, glamorous gala dinner – or unwind and get in touch with nature and yourself.

Nature, art & culture fuse in northernmost Sweden

Hosting your event at a hotel made of ice and snow, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, has a way of making an impression on guests. Bring your clients to showcase the innovative Sweden, or do an inspiration trip with your company. Here you are surrounded by nature, creativity, culture – and the crystal clear ice, year round.

Our team has organized client events for more than twenty years, both at the hotel and in a number of locations around the world – and of course, always with our signature ice. Over the years, the iconic main hall and ice bar have been used for promoting premium-end furniture, cars and house ware, hosting theatre and opera, fashion shows and much more.

Choose a destination that is guaranteed to lift the team spirit for your next group-, conference- or incentive trip. Your event or meeting will be taken care of from start to finish, and we will help you tailor an experience the team never forgets.

Facts and ideas

Facilities

At Icehotel we have all the requirements and facilities needed for a traditional meeting, and a huge possibility for unconventional conferences – for example in the year-round part of Icehotel, in a sauna, lavvu-tent or somewhere in the untouched nature. Bond your group through teambuilding activities, tailored to your needs and season. There are 276 beds and the biggest (indoor) conference room can seat up to 100 people. 

The meeting

How about beginning your day, listening to the silence on a dog sled tour, followed by an adventure race in the wilderness and a five-course ice menu in a traditional Sami tent on the frozen Torne River to finish? The experienced booking team will help you book a conference package or tailor the entire experience. Top off your stay with a night on ice in sub-zero degrees – year round.

Surroundings

Europe’s last wilderness. A visit to Icehotel is not complete without an adventure in the nature around the hotel, Europe’s last wilderness. Explore the woodlands from a dog sled and hunt the dancing northern lights on a snowmobile during the winter. Or meet under the magical light from the midnight sun and experience the serenity in the lush forest green, or feel the adrenaline kick in on a river rafting tour during the summer. 

Accessible

Icehotel is situated 200 km above the Arctic Circle, but only one hour and thirty minutes by plane from Stockholm. The closest airport is Kiruna, which has daily connections to/from Stockholm. From Kiruna Airport you can go by car, taxi or you can book the transfer through us.

I would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude for your kind and warm hospitality during our visit this week. The group came back with amazing stories about their experience throughout the whole time. Their guide Staffan was perfect! He was very attentive and they felt well taken care of. We hope to visit you again soon.
