Entrance & guided tour

Visit the original and world famous ICEHOTEL; an ephemeral hotel and 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 it’s reincarnated in a new guise, carefully designed and hand crafted by some 40 artists from around the world.

ICEHOTEL 365 –  open year round

Since December 2016 you are able to experience the permanent ice art hall, ICEHOTEL 365, housing nine Deluxe Suites, each with its own warm bathroom and sauna, as well as eleven Art Suites. The structure also holds a magnificent ICEBAR that serves champagne and drinks, all of it created out of ice and snow by hand-picked artists from around the globe, according to the same concept as the classic, seasonal ICEHOTEL. The temperature holds a steady -5°C (23°F) year round and the refrigeration unit that keeps ICEHOTEL 365 cold during the summer runs on energy from a 875 m2 solar cell facility.

ICEHOTEL 29 – open from mid-December, 2018

In November 2018 we start building the 29th renditon of the classic ICEHOTEL. This new rendition of the seasonal ICEHOTEL will contain 15 Art Suites, 20 Ice Rooms, a main hall with beautiful chandeliers and a Ceremony hall, all built entirely out of snow and ice. Each room is an installation, an original piece of art that melts and returns to Mother Nature in spring.

When visiting in May-June you can witness the melting process and see the seasonal hotel slowly returning to the river.

Welcome into the cold!
