Our Northern Lights Blog
Prior to travelling to the IceHotel, it was difficult to know what to expect, for not in my wildest imagination could I envisage a hotel made from blocks of Ice and decorated with magical sculptures. I had seen photographs of both the IceHotel and the IceHotel365 but once again nothing could prepare me for the reality of actually witnessing them for myself.
After arriving, I dressed into my warm overalls and left the bus behind. We met our guide in the reception area before she led us down snowy paths towards the hotel. As we entered into a courtyard I gazed upon the hotel for the first time and was instantly mesmerised. The structure before me was bathed in enchanting colours of white and blue and it was difficult for me to comprehend that it was rebuilt each year.
Tucked away amongst the snow-covered trees and dramatic mountain landscapes of stunning Northern Sweden is the remote haven of Lannavaara and the newly renovated Aurora Mountain Lodge - our brand-new destination for 2017.
Lannavaara may be a relatively unknown area, but the peaceful seclusion of its surroundings makes it perfect for an Arctic experience, whilst the clear, unpolluted northern skies and location within the Auroral Zone provide an ideal spot to catch a glimpse of the mesmerising Aurora Borealis.
The Treehotel has expanded their unique portfolio of impressive contemporary accommodation to bring you the brand new, magical ‘7th Room’, created with Northern Lights lovers in mind!
If you haven’t heard of the Treehotel, where have you been!? Located in pine forests by the Lule River in Swedish Lapland it is one of the most architecturally impressive collection of rooms. Set up by Kent Lindvall and his wife Britta in 2010, the portfolio of rooms consists of The Cabin, The UFO, The Mirrorcube, The Blue Cone, The Bird’s Nest and The Dragonfly, each with their own unique character.
