Jukkasjärvi belongs to the city of Kiruna and is located about 200 km north of the Polar Circle. Kiruna, the northernmost and - if judged by surface area - largest city in Sweden nestles in a varied landscape of forests, moors, glaciers, tundra and high mountains. The Kebnekaise peak, the highest mountain in Sweden at 2111m, is just outside the city. The region has an Arctic climate with a long, cold winter and a short summer. In winter, the temperatures can drop to -50°C , but July sometimes sees the thermometer soar to + 33°C.
Owing to its extreme northern location, it is an ideal spot to witness the phenomenal "midnight sun" or the polar day, when for 2 weeks between May 27th and July 14th, the sun literally doesn't set. Winter therefore sees the opposite phenomenon - the polar night, when the sun disappears for two weeks. However, even then, it doesn't get completely dark as all available light is reflected by the snow, and the Northern sky of stars and the Northern lights appear in all their brilliance.
This is the place with the longest winter in Sweden, characterised by bitter cold, metre upon metre of snow, the magical Northern lights and lakes and rivers covered with a thick layer of ice. The ski slopes open as early as October - the perfect place for an ice hotel.
P/s: Price per night: up to $ 500. Lolz..so expensive!!
