The brand new Royal suite is designed by Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte of Sweden and his business partner Oscar Kylberg. Sweden’s Famous Icehotel 2021 has been decorated by 32 artists from 13 different countries.
The world’s most unique hotel is made entirely from ice and snow. Swedish Lapland’s Icehotel is one of the most famous and innovative places you can ever dream of staying.
In parallel with Icehotel 31 melting and returning to its origins in Torne River, the jury, led by the hotel’s creative director, Luca Roncoroni, selected the 16 artist teams that will have the opportunity to create their art in this season’s Icehotel. The 32nd incarnation has opened with a touch of royal magic. It is undoubtedly one of the coolest hotels in the world.
Located 200km north of the Arctic Circle, in the village of Jukkasjarvi, this hotel has been reincarnated into new, breathtaking designs every winter for the last thirty-one years. The 2,870 m2 seasonal hotel consists of 12 art suites, 24 ice rooms and 1 ceremonial hall. Three teams have created suites inside the hotel’s year-round building, Icehotel 365.
Open all year-round
The deluxe “Midsummer Night’s Dream Suite” features floral elements and plants, a first for the iconic hotel. Bernadotte, the son of Sweden’s King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, founded design agency Bernadotte & Kylberg with his friend, designer Kylberg, in 2012.
The 32nd Icehotel opened on the 10 December 2021. The Icehotel is now open all year-round, offering a variety of activities and experiences in both the winter and summer seasons. For many though, the Icehotel is at its best during the winter months when it is blanketed in snow, the air outside is crisp and cold and the northern lights might make an appearance.
Challenge your perception of reality
At Icehotel 32, guests will be able to experience playful rooms, challenge their perception of reality, jump back in time and even feel the power of moving snow and ice. The winter season starts in December until early April. During these months guests can stay in the new, hand carved art suites, or standard ice rooms before the ice melts away and returns to the Torne river. The seasonal art suites are individually designed; each year heralds more inventive and even quirkier designs by artists from all over the world, no two designs are ever the same.
