Winter getaway

So you may have heard of the Ice Hotel in the northern part of Sweden, but did you know the hotel is 20 years old? Living in an abode of ice is nothing new. The Eskimos have done it long enough to prove it makes perfect sense in an arctic climate. However, you may not find a home as luxurious and artistically carved in an igloo as you do in the Ice Hotel located in JukkasjÀrvi in Sweden. They offer accommodations for those that want to sleep on a bed of ice as well as the adventurous at heart but in need of heat, who can stay in regular heated rooms. During the day you can experience dog sleding, raindeer sleding (yes Rudolf is alive and well in Sweden), ice course driving in a brand new Saab or checking out the Norther lights on top of a horse. Life is too short not to plan your next adventure and this should definitely be on the list! By paying a visit to the hotel website you will find all the hotel has to offer.



  1. One of the most famous things we have here in Sweden. It is usually so poular so you need to make the room reservations months before..
    The place looks amazing but cold..

  2. I've spend many nights in different hotels but this one is still on my wishlist.. how beautiful! I think everyone should be able to experience the northern light at least once, it's the prettiest thing I've ever seen!


  3. OMG, this is so incredible!!! Gorgeous and cold!! How do people sleep!! What a beautiful ice palace, though! I think I would need a heated room but would love, love, love to do the horse thing!! xo Cait
