Have returned from a trip to the Ice Hotel. Stayed 3 nights in Kiruna and 1 night at the ice hotel. This was all booked through Kiruna Guide tour, who were excellent. Trips were taken whilst in Kiruna and they were very good, on some trips there were only ourselves and the others just one other couple. Collected from our hotel and brought back again.
The ice hotel was fantastic, although if you are staying in the cold accomodation there is no where to go and relax, until you go to bed, they do need some sort of lounge and would be nice if the showers were nearer - you have to go across the road for them. But still would not have missed the experience. We were not cold at all. Staff advice you to have thermals, pyjamas, socks and a hat to sleep in. Its best not to take anything else into your ice room, but to leave it all in the luggage store.
We couldnt have asked for a better holiday - no sun tan but at least because of layers of clothes we were not cold, and have done something most people only dream about.
