Icehotel Journeys

With spectacular ice sculptures to marvel and sub-zero temperatures to snuggle up in, a night in an ice or snow hotel beckons with a unique combination of cosiness and thrill. Unsurprisingly, drifting off to sleep in an intricately designed ice room (deservedly) features on many bucket lists. As destination specialists, we’d like to empower travelers to go beyond the bucket list and choose the most suitable ice hotel experience based on their individual requirements

What to expect from a stay in an ice hotel

Staying in a cold room

Temperatures outside the ice hotel frequently drop below -20 degrees, yet room temperatures remain stable at about -5 degrees. Expect room temperatures to be refreshing, but not extremely cold. Guests who prefer having a back-up can upgrade to an Art Suite with a warm room attached. Or perhaps even a sauna? 

When to go

By Mid-December the vast majority of hotels welcome their first guests. By the end of April, the ice hotels close down until next season. If you still like to go, you can stay at the 365 ICE HOTEL. Open all year round, guests can enjoy a stay in luxurious art suites rounded off with a frosty drink at the ice bar.
