The Best Places To Stay During Your Sweden Travel
It can be said that Sweden is home to some of the world’s unique and best places to stay. During your Sweden Travel, you will soon find out lots of weird hotels that go beyond the others you might know. Right now, we will show two creative and emblematic accommodations that can make your trip wonderful. Down here and see what they are!
The Icehotel, Jukkasjärv
An icy bed with reindeer furs
What do you think when spending a night in a hotel that is entirely made of ice? Just visit the Icehotel in Jukkasjärv and then you can get unforgettable experiences when sleeping on a bed of ice under the frozen temperature. Since the first opening in 1990, this hotel welcomes guests every year in December and closes for rebuilding in April.
All are made from blocks of ice that are taken from the Torne River
All the blocks of ice for the construction are taken from the Torne River every March and stored in production halls. And when finished, it highlights an icy bar, restaurant, reception area, main hall, church, and nearly 100 rooms for guests.
Of course, everything in the hotel from chairs to tables and even beds is carved from ice. However, to keep the guests warm, the beds are covered with reindeer furs and people are given polar-tested sleeping bags to sleep well.
Although there are different kinds of rooms in the Icehotel such as art suites, snow rooms, or Northern Lights rooms, it always offers both cold rooms and warm rooms. For two nights, we recommend that you should stay only one night in the cold room and then spend the rest in the warm room. It’s because you can make sure to have the last good night.
A stunning bar at the Icehotel with icy glasses
Additionally, visiting the restaurant and bar at the Icehotel is quite fantastic because everything is served on a block of ice. Enjoy a traditional Swedish meal before reaching the bar to have an icy glass of cocktail or champagne. Especially, don’t miss sightseeing the Ice Church, where more than 100 wedding ceremonies and 20 baptisms are held every year.
Witnessing the Northern Lights is also a great experience when staying there
Last but not least, seeing the Northern Lights when staying at the Icehotel makes your trip more terrific. Move towards the freezing Torne River just behind the hotel to get the excellent place for viewing the dancing Northern Lights in the sky.
The Treehotel, Harads
The Treehotel gives you 7 unique and amazing houses
After having an unforgettable night in an icy room in Jukkasjärv, why don’t you move to Harads and experience another night in the treetops? Have you ever thought a dream-like site when you’re young? We’re sure you do, guys. On your Sweden Travel, remember to stop at another the best place to stay, the Treehotel.
The concept has all been made by Sweden’s top architects, which aims to bring remarkable ideas to the world. Each room is completely a complicated tree house, either hang in the treetops or build on platforms that are located between the bows of the tree. What’s more, the landscape surrounding these rooms is romantic, and you can get a great opportunity to witness the Northern Lights because you’re staying within the Aurora Zone.
Inside the Blue Cone room
Except for a unique and modern look, all of the seven rooms at the Treehotel bring a high standard of accommodation as well. They have been constructed directly in the treetops and can be entered only by ladder, bridge, or ramp.
Amongst, the 7th Room is the highest and biggest tree-house which was just opened in the beginning of the year 2017. You will experience a 10-meter traditional Scandinavian log cabin in the tree with a strong and spectacular net to climb to the house. In addition, you’re free to pick up other rooms with each own characteristic including the Bird’s Nest, the Cabin, the Mirror Cube, the UFO, the Blue Cone, and the Dragon Fly.
Enjoy the magnificent views surrounding the room
Another attracting part of staying at the Treehotel is that you will not only soak in the gorgeous scenery of rivers and forests during the day but also see the Northern Lights by night. In protecting these marvelous surroundings, these rooms have been fitted with sourced wooden floors, locally crafted furnishings, and energy efficient eco toilets. The main power for the tree-houses is hydroelectricity, and no trees are chopped during the building.
Here is the newest and biggest house - The 7th Room
With the purpose of bringing the best relaxation for guests, you need to know the last orders when staying there. Britta’s Restaurant just opens from 8 am to 11 pm, and the breakfast is served until 10 am.
