Drive Your Own Husky Team. Overnight in Warm Accommodation at ICEHOTEL.

After breakfast enjoy what for many is the favourite day of a trip to Lapland time out with a sled dog team in the Arctic Wilderness.

Transfer to the kennel on the road to Nikkaluokta through a river valley where moose congregate in winter.

Ylva Sievertsson is one of a select group of accomplished ‘lady’ husky guides, whose kennel is in a remote valley where she runs very personal sled dog trips. As you will discover she enjoys a special relationship with her dogs and it is a thrill to visit her kennel and spend time with her.

Once you arrive at the kennels get acquainted. Harness the dogs and feel their excitement as you attach the sled. Head out with Ylva into the frozen river valley where you will have opportunities to take turns in driving the team whilst making stops to take photos. The location is outside the major tourist areas and we can almost promise that you will enjoy pristine arctic nature alone.

You will be out for around 2 hours before heading back to base for a warming lunch in the traditional ‘Kota’ adjacent to the family home.

Enjoy lunch back at the Lodge prior to a trip back to the ICEHOTEL to check into your warm accommodation.

Evening at leisure. We will make a dinner reservation for you in either the main restaurant or the Homestead.

The Treehotel

Dreamt up on a fishing trip in Kamchatka, Russia, but part of a living Boreal forest in Swedish Lapland, this is a hotel with a difference!

The Treehotel comprises 7 unique themed Tree Rooms, created by 7 separate architects. These are the Mirrorcube, Bird's Nest, Cabin, Blue Cone, dragon fly, UFO and 7th Room!

In addition there is a sauna and relaxation area and nearby is the Brittas Pensionat where meals are served.

The rooms are set between 4-6 meters from the ground in pine trees and rooms are accessed by either a ramp or sturdy stairs. They can house between 2 and 4 people and the larger rooms, The Dragonfly and the 7th Room, have separate bedrooms.

Every Tree Room has its own living and sleeping area and is equipped with a state of the art eco-friendly incineration toilet and water efficient hand basin, which means there is no artificial plumbing.

The emphasis is on running the hotel consistent with values of low impact on the surrounding forest and every aspect of the operation compliments this aim.

The Original ICEHOTEL - Swedish Lapland

The Original ICEHOTEL is situated in Jukassjarvi Swedish Lapland. It is a feat of engineering and artistic creation and still one of the most impressive and unusual places to stay.

The hotel has 2 restaurants, one serving gourmet food, whilst its more informal Homestead restaurant serves hearty traditional food.

From 2015 The ICEHOTEL consists of 2 structures - the temporary hotel is rebuilt each year from blocks of ice harvested from the Torne river which runs adjacent to the IceHotel. These are stored for the summer in a huge warehouse and as the late Autumn temperature in Jukkasjärvi drops below zero ice artists arrive from the world over to build this magnificent creation. They build the 4 levels of rooms, the ice chapel and the ice bar. Their art is created with imagination and hard work, only to melt away under the unforgiving rays of the spring sun.

The new ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent ICEHOTEL and a feat of engineering which offers visitors the chance of staying the whole year round. It is an all suite hotel and also house the celebrated ICEBAR. On request we can ask for the luxury suites which have adjacent bathrooms. These carry a supplement.

You will leave your luggage in an adjacent service block where there are saunas and showers, whilst all you will take into the hotel is you and your thermal arctic sleeping bag!

Wake up to a hot Lingonberry juice served in your room prior to the very substantial ICEHOTEL breakfast served in the main restaurant.
