Your Destinations —
In each, you'll find trend-setting design, inventive cuisine, unbeatable museums, great shopping, pretty parks and loads of atmosphere. The old town, Gamla Stan, is one of Europe’s most arresting historic hubs, all storybook buildings, imposing palaces and razor-thin cobblestone streets....just a few metres from this time capsule, the modern city centre gleams.
Local attractions include:
- Gamla Stan - Stockholm’s original city centre and consists of Stadsholmen island and other islets which are home to the Stockholm Cathedral, the Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum.
- Södermalm - a bustling area lined with retro shops, boutiques, cafe and bars.
- Norrmalm - the major commercial district, with plenty of shopping opportunities. The central railway station and the T-Centralen metro hub are located in Southern Norrmalm; known as City, it is regarded as the absolute centre of Stockholm.
- Östermalm - an affluent commercial and residential area. The part closest to the city centre, around the Stureplan square, is the place for upmarket shopping as well as nightclubs and bars for the jet set and those who seek their company.
- Kungsholmen - an island that makes up the western part of the inner city. On its eastern tip, the impressive redbrick Stockholm City Hall stands by the water. Further west, a collection of rather relaxed neighbourhood bars and restaurants can be found.
Known locally as “Jukkas", this tiny village is a true Winter wonderland, most famed for its unique Icehotel.

Icehotel - Jukkasjärvi
Icehotel is the world’s first hotel made of ice and snow. Founded in 1989, it is reborn in a new guise every winter, in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi – 200 km north of the Arctic Circle.
When the first snow has sprinkled the whole of Jukkasjärvi with white, artists from all over the world come together in the village to take part in creating the art exhibition of snow, ice and light that makes up Icehotel.
The 60 bedrooms are separated into "cold" and "warm" - the warm rooms are part of neighbouring Kammos Hotel, in traditional wooden chalet type houses.
The Icehotel restaurant and cocktail bar is warm and traditional – a welcome escape from the sub-zero temperatures. Sourcing ingredients from the local area, expect dishes featuring reindeer, moose, Arctic char and bramble berries, prepared by Michelin-trained head chef Alexander Meier and his team.
The Icehotel Lounge is a cosy space serving light snacks, hot drinks, cocktails and beers. Open from December to April.
The Icebar is a unique place for a pre dinner drink, where everything, including the glasses is made entirely out of ice from the Torne River. The design of the bars is created by known artists from around the world changing from year to year just like the design of Icehotel.
The ice room has a classic design and holds a temperature of -5 to -8 degrees Celsius. The bed you sleep on has a thick mattress that rests on a wooden base. The bed is covered with reindeer hides and you sleep in a thermal sleeping bag. In the morning you are awakened with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside.
Instead of doors, the hotel rooms have curtains that you draw to give you and your company privacy.
In Dressing Room, the warm building adjacent to Icehotel, you will find communal changing rooms, toilets and saunas for women and men. Your luggage is stored in the luggage storage room prior to your overnight stay.
These warm rooms, arranged in groups of 6-8 within a charming wooden chalet, are spacious and comfortable with a calm feel. Natural materials are complemented by neutral shades of white, grey and brown. All rooms are ground floor level, looking out over the spruce and birch trees, dusted in snow.
The rooms have 2 single beds, desk and a seating area with two armchairs and a small coffee table.
The hallway and en-suite tiled bathroom have heated stone floors.
Size: 28 sqm
