This is the world’s first ICEHOTEL and we’ve made it our mission to create life enriching experiences, in Jukkasjärvi and beyond. The walls, floors and ceilings of the hotel are the canvases of designers from all creative disciplines. The artists and art work vary from year to year, each rendition of the hotel presenting an ephemeral collection. The hotel melts and returns to Mother Nature in spring.
Set in Jukkasjärvi, a small village 200 km above the Arctic Circle but only 15 km from Kiruna Airport (KRN) and 17 km from Kiruna train station in Sweden. Travel to Kiruna by plane or train: SJ, the Swedish train company, has daily departures all the way up to northern Norway passing ICEHOTEL (Kiruna).

The Sámi people inhabitated northern Scandinavia long before the city of Kiruna was founded. For thousands of years, they’ve lived in harmony with nature and their reindeer, constantly moving in search of food for the herd. We follow their steps to explore wilderness in winter, horseback riding, dog sledding, skiiing, snowmobile, dinner in wild or northern lights hunting.
