Book this trip early as New Year sells out fast!

New Year at the ICEHOTEL

**LAST 2 PLACES!** – A 3-night break over New Year staying at the world-famous ICEHOTEL in Sweden.

We are offering this very special ICEHOTEL holiday that is sure to sell out early and so please do book asap.

Day 1: (30th December 2018)
Fly from London to Kiruna via Stockholm.  Meet your transfer which will take you to the ICEHOTEL (approx 15 mins). Enjoy a complimentary orientation tour of the ICEHOTEL (subject to arrival time).

Tonight is the highlight of your stay at Sweden’s famous ICEHOTEL.  Join the ‘Sleeping on Ice’ tour to learn about how to sleep well in your special room made of Ice. You will stay in an upgraded room (Art Suite), each individually designed with their own unique ice art.

Warm changing facilities are provided before you embark on the experience of a lifetime.

Day 2: (31st December 2018)
Enjoy breakfast before you embark on the first of your two included excursions (4hr Trap Line Dog Excursion). The kennels of Bert Ove Johansson are located in Laxforsen 10km from Kiruna, and have been certified by the ‘Nature’s Best’ environmental award. After meeting your team of Huskies at the kennels, you will depart for a tour of the surrounding Arctic wilderness. Watch the white landscape glide past from your seat or from the mushers/driver’s position – It is a truly wonderful experience. Light refreshments will be served in a wilderness hut whilst the guide tells stories about the Huskies and the traditional way of light and survival techniques used in the area. It is possible to take a short snowshoe walk in the surroundings of the hut. Return to kennels by dog sled. One passenger is included to learn in the main cost). Children are required to sit in the guides sled.
