We have just got back from spending the weekend at the Icehotel and we had an absolutely fantastic time. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food is excellent - we had the special Ice menu with drinks package - a glass with each of the six courses - be warned it is a glass and not what we thought just a small amount of wine with each course, so we ended up drinking a bottle of wine each! (well one of us did!)
We had booked the snowmobiles for a trip to chase the northern lights and it was so magical to glide through the forest and see the northern lights dancing over head. We were very lucky to see the lights put on an amazing display - a complete dome of surreal lights dancing all around.
We also did the 1.5 hours dog sledge ride but I was a little disappointed - 5 of us straddling a sledge - very uncomfortable.
We slept one night in the warm room and one night in the ice room. The warm room was too warm - 24C is way too hot for me to sleep in - hubby was just fine. The ice room was not too cold minus 5C sounds really cold, but you're supplied with a fantastic sleeping bag with cotton liner. Your advised to sleep in your thermal undies with socks and hats, but I became too hot! but slept really well after I'd removed them.
Now I want to go back in the summer to see the Midnight Sun!
