Located 200km north of the Arctic Circle, Lapland’s quirky ICEHOTEL is rebuilt every year, making good use of northern Sweden’s plentiful ice and snow.

It's a great destination for families to experience an exciting range of outdoor activities while staying in one of the most unusual hotels in the world. Kids love it, although its best suited to teens rather than toddlers.

The hotel has a couple of restaurants and bars, a café, an on-site shop, a cosy lounge and a sauna. Optional activities include dog-sledding, skiing, ice-sculpting and Northern Lights expeditions.

There are cold and warm rooms; you're recommended to mix it up during your stay. Cold rooms (-5°C) are open to the public, so you have to vacate at a certain time (except in the luxury suite). Curtains protect your privacy, and you’re given thermal clothes and sleeping bags. Alternatively, luxury cold suites have bathrooms and doors. Warm rooms are decked out with wood and have their own bathrooms; some also have a lounge and kitchenette.

A buffet breakfast is included in rates.
