HIGHLIGHTS |   Free day on your own till board Scenic Train to Stockholm

After breakfast, check out and you are free to explore the area on your own. We suggest you to take tours, conducted by Kiruna Tourimo Office…close approximate to your hotel.  Our foremost suggestion is to take the excursion of the Structure Crafting of the world famous Ice Hotel (check with Kiruna Tourism Office) before you book.

Preparation of Ice Hotel: The story of Ice Hotel starts in 1989, when it became the world’s first and largest hotel made of ice and snow in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi – 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. It’s also Sweden’s most unique and probably most extensive private art hall. Icehotel is all about ice and creativity – with art as the result. That’s why the artists invited to take part are not required to have worked with ice before – they’re selected from among those who send in their ideas based on originality and creating it in real natural ice would pose a new challenge. Each year some 40 artists are taking part in Icehotel. The notion that several weeks’ hard work and months of planning and preparation culminate in something that only exists for a few months is in some respects a bittersweet feeling.

Later, you will be transferred from the hotel to the station in Kiruna to board the overnight train to Stockholm. You will be served dinner on board.
