SWEDISH SUMMER AT ICEHOTEL

Arctic summer in Jukkasjärvi means magical views and daylight around the clock. The midnight sun shines from mid-May to mid-July and invites you to stay up late and marvel at the golden light. Take the opportunity to rent a SUP-board, hike up the mountains around Jukkasjärvi for spectacular views of Torne River and hear the birds sing, the water flow and the treetops whispering in the wind.

Welcome to Icehotel this summer!

ICE ART ALL YEAR ROUND

Icehotel 365 is open all summer and invites you to a night on ice. The specially designed building allows it to be winter indoors and summer outdoors. Stroll around in our 18 Art- and Deluxe Suites and enjoy a refreshing drink “in the rocks” at Icebar by Icehotel.

SWEDISH MIDSUMMER

A traditional Swedish Midsummer celebration will be arranged by the homestead Association in Jukkasjärvi for the summer of 2022. The celebrations will be at The Old Homestead, just 15 minutes walk from Icehotel. It will be a day with dancing and laughing. Among the classic tarred cottages, there are open grass beds to settle on, the Torne River flows slowly past and invites you to take a dip and we open the restaurant for coffee & sweets during the day. 

Later in the evening we open up for dinner at the restaurant and invite you to enjoy good food, wonderful company and live music of the evening’s troubadour. The bright evenings and mild summer temperatures promise a long night of celebration.

 

THE ART[IST]IC TABLE

Try this summer´s new dining experience under the rays of the midnight sun at the Art[ist]ic Table – a chef’s table under the open sky, in the middle of the wilderness. Here you can enjoy the summer’s unique flavors and aromas, all carefully selected, tailored, and spiced with the unexpected.
