 Swedish Splendour
 

Swedish Splendour

 

Your holiday break begins in Sweden’s beautiful capital, Stockholm - the capital of life and movement. After enjoying an urban lifestyle in Stockholm continues north, 200km inside the Arctic Circle to the world famous Icehotel. Ten thousand years ago, glaciers carved a riverbed and the Torne River was born. Since then, the crystal-clear, pure water of the Torne River has flowed freely along its 600-kilometer path through Lapland out to the sea in the southeast. The entire ICEHOTEL is “on loan” from the mighty Torne River and is a place where time stands still.

Your accommodation tonight will be in a standard warm Kaamos room.

Northern Sweden is possibly one of the best places to see the northern lights because it lies under the auroral oval and enjoys clear skies more often than many coastal regions. Icehotel is a prime location for experiencing the aurora borealis, or northern lights.

After breakfast, time at leisure to explore more of your beautiful surroundings and the many activities on offer at the Icehotel. Tonight, you will spend the night in one of the ice rooms with ice décor and a bed made of ice. Spending a night in Icehotel is a surreal experience – a memory for life – and in the morning you are awakened with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside.

The ice room has a classic design and holds a temperature of -5 to -8 degrees Celsius. The bed you sleep on has a thick mattress that rests on a wooden base. The bed is covered with reindeer hides and you sleep in a thermal sleeping bag. Instead of doors, the hotel rooms have curtains that you draw to give you and your company privacy. You will find communal changing rooms, toilets, and saunas for women and men in the warm building adjacent to Icehotel. Your luggage is stored in the luggage storage room prior to your overnight stay.
