New Year’s Eve the Icehotel way


Leave the heels at home – the dress code for New Years at Icehotel is snow suit and moon boots.

While Icehotel is still open for the holidays, our top priority is the health and safety of both our guests and our staff. We follow the information and the directives we receive from the authorities closely and take measures accordingly.

For the New years celebreation this means that we will serve our specially composed New Year’s dinner in the late afternoon, either at Icehotel Restaurant or in the Old Homestead of Jukkasjärvi. We will offer room service with some extra goodies for all family until late.

This year we will not have the traditional gathering at the strike of midnight so instead of lanterns lighting up the sky we wish for stars to fall and northern lighst to dance for us for the new year. 

Did you already book your stay with us you will receive information by e-mail.


Wishing you happy holidays and all the best for the New Year!
