Watching the Aurora Borealis perform its majestic dance across the sky is an awe-inducing experience we will never forget. But equally as spellbinding was our basecamp, ICEHOTEL, selected for us by leading tailor-made destination specialists, Discover-the-World. 200km north of the Arctic Circle, ICEHOTEL is a luxury property made entirely from the crystal clear ice of the Torne River, transformed into a magical palace by artists each winter, only to melt in Spring – offering a once-in-a-lifetime visit, as no two ICEHOTELs are identical. Add to that amazing activities like husky sledding, ice-carving, chasing the Northern Lights by snowmobile, driving a 4×4 on the ice, or getting gay-married in the ice chapel – and this makes for one of our all-time favourite getaways.
