Icehotel Direct Flight
We're proud to be the world's leading Icehotel partner for almost three decades, this special relationship ensures clients receive the best possible prices, availability, and holiday experience.
We continue to offer the only direct flight to the Icehotel from the UK, departing from London Heathrow to Kiruna in Swedish Lapland, just 20 minutes from the Icehotel and 80 minutes from Abisko.
This flight is exclusive to Discover the World, and allows you to avoid any unnecessary time 'in transit' or the need to change planes - making the most of your time away, especially if you're on a short break.
Whilst we also offer the option to fly via Stockholm, and indeed the chance to stop over there, our #IceFlight is the quickest and most comfortable way to reach the Icehotel in just 3½ hours.
Our team has unrivalled first-hand knowledge and can work with you to tailor the perfect Swedish Lapland holiday to match your budget, timescale and interests.

Key Benefits To You
Save Time & Arrive Relaxed
Maximise your time away with our 3½ hour flight to Kiruna. This can save you up to 4½ hours when compared to the travelling via Stockholm.
Complimentary Meals & Drinks
Scheduled services via Stockholm don't include a complimentary meal service - although you'll be able to buy drinks and light snacks onboard. Only on our direct flight you be able to enjoy a meal with wine, beer and soft drinks, included in the price. In economy class the meal will be cold; upgrade to premium class to enjoy a hot meal while you fly.
Sociable Flight Times
By flying direct you'll have far friendlier flight times. Depart Heathrow at 10:35 and land in Kiruna at 15:05. And on the return journey, depart Kiruna at 14:30 and land at Heathrow at 16:55. However, if you travel via Stockholm, flights depart Heathrow at either 07:00, meaning a very early start or 15:35, which means arriving in Kiruna at 23:40. It is even a requirement on some dates to stop overnight in Stockholm.
Reduced Risk of Lost Luggage
When flying direct there is no need to change planes which may have tight connections, increasing the risk of your luggage not making it to the destination - always a bonus!
On our direct flight it is possible to reserve any seats* in advance at no extra cost, so if you'd like that little bit of extra leg room by booking an aisle seat or you'd like to confirm seats together for your party, simply give us call. When flying scheduled services however, you'll need to wait until check-in to choose any seats and there is no guarantee that you will be able to sit together.
*except emergency exit seats which must be allocated at check-in
Adventures in Swedish Lapland
As well as the enchanting Icehotel, we offer a host of other charming Swedish Lapland retreats, all within easy reach with our direct flight and just waiting to be explored.
With the convenience of our exclusive flight, you can go in search of the northern lights from the breathtaking Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park.
You can also combine your Icehotel stay with the iconic Treehotel in Lulea or with a variety of our holidays to make the most of your Swedish Lapland adventure. Discuss your ideas with our expert team.
