Ice and Snow Hotels Holiday Ideas

The snowy exterior of the amazing Icehotel in Sweden

‘Cool’ really is an understatement when discussing our amazing range of ice and snow hotels. These truly unique designs are built afresh every year, from the natural resources of the Arctic, meaning that no two hotels are ever the same! Crafters spend months preparing these striking structures so that you can experience winter in truly unique accommodation. On first glance, you’ll notice the stunning ice carvings which decorate these stupendous architectural masterpieces, and that’s just the outside! Head indoors to perfectly crafted sleeping quarters, which offer the cosy comforts of a fleece-lined sleeping bag and the atmospheric draw of wonderful mood lighting. Sip a cold beverage from a glass made of entirely ice in an intricately decorated ice bar and taste the delights of local cuisine in charming restaurants. Journey to Finland, Norway, Sweden or Canada to experience these awe-inspiring buildings and a holiday like no other!

Knowing you want to stay in one of these extraordinary buildings is just the first step in planning your holiday. Choosing the hotel you’d like to visit, however, can be somewhat more taxing! We’ve created this simple Ice and Snow Hotels Holiday Ideas page to tell you all about the different hotels and the trips we offer there. Take a look through to find your ideal getaway. And if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for, fear not! We also offer tailor-made trips to fulfil your every requirement.
