The ice hotel after 8 days husky tour, where you spend every day 6h in the cold and can not shower, is extremely unfavorable from the planning. In addition, Kiruna is a really ugly city where you can not really do anything all day. At some point you just want to sit comfortably in a warm room u relax...but then you only have the ice room at -6 degrees, which is open to the public until 6pm. I.e. one waits until 23 o'clock in a hotel lobby of the ice hotel with many other people with far too little space + seating, to then spend a night in the dark for 600€. If I had known that you can visit the ice hotel also only for 30€ p.p., this would have been the much better option after 8 days husky tour, especially since in the ugly base camp you also do not know what to do the 9h until you go to sleep.
The base camp of the husky tour is horrible - the outhouse full to the brim, the room with the 2 showers unhygienic, smells horrible and everything is totally loveless - even the reception is not really warm! I can not recommend this camp in any case. The huts are tiny where you are accommodated to 4.
Our trip was only successful because we were lucky with the guide and with the family of 4 with whom we were traveling together.
