At ICEHOTEL you'll find two different restaurants, a lounge, champagne bar, ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL and endless opportunities to dine outdoors. ICEHOTEL Restaurant has a modern Scandinavian style and the Old Homestead Restaurant is a charming, historical log building. We also recommend staying over at one of our wilderness camps, all fully equipped to serve delicious meals.
The ICEHOTEL menu
ICEHOTEL Restaurant offers a gastronomic adventure and a high-end à la carte menu in a bright and modern atmosphere. The cuisine of ICEHOTEL Restaurant has been featured in gourmet magazines around the world and has been awarded the prestigious Werner Vögeli Statuette and honorary New Nordic Food diplom awarded by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Overlooking the Torne River, you'll find the authentic, charming Old Homestead Restaurant. In this timber building, built in 1768, you can enjoy a rustic á la carte menu during winter at 5.30 PM and 9 PM.
The dress code at our restaurants is casual but well-dressed. You don't have to wear your fanciest frock, but we prefer you don't dine in your outerwear, snow boots or long-johns.
In ICEBAR JUKKASJÄRVI by ICEHOTEL your can mingle with the other guests into the small hours and sip on colorful ice drinks. The bar opens at 1 PM every day and stays open until 1 AM, all winter.
There are also warmer options available. In the lounge you can relax, have a drink and chat with the other guests. Or why not just curl up in a comfortable couch with a good book? The lounge is open between 11 AM and 1 AM and serves sandwiches, coffee drinks, wine and beer.
The dressing room, a warm buildning connected to ICEHOTEL where you store you clothes when staying the night in the cold accommodation, is also pleasant to sit down and take a break. Next to the crackling fire, perhaps?
You can experience the sensation of ICEHOTEL even during summer. In a freeze house a 120 square meters you'll find a summer version of ICEHOTEL with three art suites, an ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL and place for guests to try ice sculpting.
You can experience sleeping in minus degrees, visit the bar and our ice factory, where next year’s ICEHOTEL awaits in form of huge blocks of crystal-clear ice.
The midnight sun blazes for 100 days and nights, a perfect setting for adventures in the surrounding wilderness as well as a space to unwind and relax. Accommodation, activities and restaurants is within arms length when staying in Jukkasjärvi.

Featured / Dine at ICEHOTEL
The tempo is high around the stoves and griddles, as high as the temperature and spirit among the cooks. It’s an utterly captivating experience to catch the cooking show live in a first-class, international kitchen, at the moment of truth when the guests are seated and waiting. The photographer and I try to stand clear as the wonderful dishes are lined up and made ready to serve. We are in awe watching the well-oiled machinery of 18 cooks and two sous-chefs orchestrating the evening’s spectacular show. And in the wings stands Stefan Benjaminsson with his sharp eye on every detail.
