Absolutely Ice

Stockholm / Jukkasjärvi

5 nights / 6 days

Your holiday break begins in Sweden’s beautiful capital, Stockholm – the capital of life and movement. Stockholm is built on 14 islands all part of an archipelago. Sweden’s Capital is charming, vibrant and surrounded by beauty and water – hence it’s nickname, Venice of the North. After enjoying an urban lifestyle in Stockholm you will continue north – 200km inside the Arctic Circle to the world famous Ice hotel. Ten thousand years ago, glaciers carved a riverbed and the Torne River was born. Since then, the crystal-clear, pure water of the Torne River has flowed freely along its 600-kilometer path through Lapland out to the sea in the southeast.  The entire ICEHOTEL is on loan from the mighty Torne River and is a place where time stands still.
