Filled with invigorating experiences, the new three-night break combines a variety of experiences aimed to help guests switch off and unwind in the stunningly tranquil surroundings.

Here’s what’s awaiting with ‘Spirit of the Arctic at Icehotel’:

There’s a wide array of rejuvenating activities and wellness escapades to sample. Offering the best of both, the new break includes invigorating and more gentle experiences.

Take on husky sledding, ice sculpting and gentle cross-country skiing, or try  ‘Arctic wilderness bathing’ which takes its name from the popular ‘forest bathing’ trend and involves guests taking themselves away from the hotel to enjoy a self-guided walk, immersing themselves in the natural landscape whilst listening to a specially curated Arctic playlist; aiming to foster stillness and a connection to nature.

The break also includes a range of classic Icehotel experiences. These include one night sleeping on ice in the world’s coolest hotel, along with the chance to add activities such as a wilderness survival class, sleigh rides or even spending a night in a private wilderness cabin to really take full advantage of ‘aurora country’.
