Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Lulea in Swedish Lapland, where you will be met and transferred to Harads, a small hamlet, home to the now iconic Tree Hotel.

The idea of creating a treehouse hotel was conceived up by our close partner and friend Kent Lindvall whilst on a fishing trip in the depths of the Russian wilderness. What he and his wife Britta have created is truly unique and continually attracts the attention of style magazines and architects from around the world.

The Tree hotel comprises 7 unique themed Tree Rooms. These are the Mirrorcube, Bird’s Nest, Cabin, Blue Cone, Dragonfly, UFO & 7th room – all nestled in pine trees in a boreal forest.

We offer our clients the ability to stay in two different rooms on separate nights during your stay. Popular combinations are the Cabin and Birds Nest and the Mirrorcube and UFO!

After settling in, enjoy a three-course dinner in the restaurant before escaping to your home in the trees for the night!

Day 2

Forest Snowmobile Safari. Overnight in Tree Hotel.

Have a leisurely breakfast prior to embarking on a 2.5 hour snowmobile adventure through the pristine wilderness around the Tree Hotel. You will stop for a Swedish fika break at the mid-way point. It is an exhilarating feeling being away from it all surrounded by snow-laden trees and commanding views. Enjoy lunch back at the lodge.

This evening back at The Tree Hotel enjoy the wholesome cooking served in the Restaurant. If you are celebrating a special occasion or want to do something romantic or memorable, consider the Dining on Ice experience where you enjoy a gourmet dinner served in a candlelit tepee.

You have the option of staying in the same tree cabin, or moving and trying an alternative. The northern lights are frequently spotted around this area so if they are out its worth finding a private viewing spot to enjoy the show – the perfect after-dinner entertainment!

Day 3

After breakfast, a guide will take you to Boden Train Station to catch the train to Kiruna on the western side of Swedish Lapland. This 4-hour journey crosses the Arctic Circle and gives you a great chance to see one of the last expanses of wilderness in Europe. On arrival in Kiruna you will meet your and transfer you to the Icehotel for check in. Take the tour of both the temporary Icehotel and the permanent Icehotel 365, and marvel at the feat of engineering that allows these structures to exist. For more than 30 years, the Icehotel has attracted clients from all over the world to enjoy its unique designer art suites, get married in the chapel, or simply enjoy a cocktail at the cool Ice Bar.

Unlike most operators, we offer art suites as standard in all of our itineraries as we believe that they enhance your stay and let you appreciate this unique experience to the full.

Day 4

After breakfast you can get prepared for your day trip out dog sledding and learning to mush. Here you will also stop at the kennels to meet all the dogs and have some lunch. When you get back to the Icehotel you will be able to check into your warm accommodation for the evening, so take some time to relax and have a hot shower after all the activities. Then get ready for your next adventure – a Northern Lights Wilderness Dinner. Here you will meet with your guide and get taken to a cabin for a delicious meal prepared for your group, while you learn about the aurora – and maybe even get to see them!

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

Day 5

After breakfast you have a little time at leisure before a guide will pick you up from the Icehotel and transfer you to the airport for your flight home. Alternatively why not include a stopover in Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm.

Where You'll Stay

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 and is a feat of engineering and artistic creation.  We recommend staying in an Art Suite to appreciate the full ICEHOTEL experience and our itineraries feature these rooms as standard. They cost a little more but add hugely to your appreciation of this Once in a Lifetime experience.

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 blocks are stored for the summer in a huge warehouse and as the late Autumn temperature in Jukkasjärvi drops below zero ice artists arrive from all over the world 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 houses both Art suites and the Deluxe Art Suites  (which we offer as an upgrade)  with their luxury en suite bathrooms. It is also home to the celebrated ICEBAR.

You have your own private locker room where you can change and leave your bags whilst having access to the adjacent service block where there are saunas, toilets and showers.

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

For Dinner the ICEHOTEL  has 2 restaurants, one serving gourmet food, whilst the more informal Homestead restaurant serves hearty traditional food.
