In March 2019, SAS Dreams arranged a dream trip to Jukkasjärvi in Sweden, a place so peaceful in the winter you can almost hear the snow fall. It is also home to one of the most unique hotels in the world, the ICEHOTEL, which has been listed on TIME Magazine’s 2018 World’s Greatest Places.

We flew SAS from Stockholm, Arlanda to Kiruna, 200 km above the Arctic Circle to drive snowmobiles and dogsleds through snow-covered forests, meet a Sami family and experience their culture, try to get a glimpse of the majestic Northern Lights, sleep in a room sculpted entirely from ice and enjoy simple pleasures such as smoked-reindeer and coffee made on an open fire.

We enjoyed al fresco dining and a 12-course dinner at ICEHOTEL’s Veranda restaurant and stayed the first night at ICEHOTEL and the other night in a basic heated hut. Warm clothes and equipment for all activities were provided.

The ICEHOTEL is both a hotel and an art exhibition made of ice from the river Torne, each year reincarnated in a brand-new design. A place to discover silence, northern lights, glistening snow-clad forests, reindeer, cloudberries, kettle coffee and much more. No wonder it is listed on “TIME Magazine’s 2018 World’s Greatest Places,” the ICEHOTEL isn’t to be missed – an unforgettable experience!

Get inspired! Below you will find the program from our trip.
