Winter Season 2020/2021 - IGLOOTEL will remain closed
Dear friends, supporters and cooperation partners of IGLOOTEL Lapland,
we hope you are fine - depending on the circumstances - and you and your loved ones are doing well? Unfortunately, this question takes on a whole new meaning in such turbulent times and rises from the phrase to serious concern ...
We turn to you today because the current situation also forces us to make decisions, which will have an impact on the planning for the upcoming winter season 2020/2021. After IGLOOTEL has been able to grow continuously with our respective cooperation partners in recent years and we have received lots of positive feedback for our work from Sweden as well as from Germany, we now have to rethink our future.
Due to the still very uncertain travel situation and the unpredictable, long-term economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, heavily-hearted we have decided that the doors of IGLOOTEL Lapland will remain closed for the next winter season 2020/2021 for now. Our team has invested a lot of time, passion and muscle strength in the construction of this unique hotel and event location during the last years. A continuation of this effort against the background of a possibly declining number of visitors as well as various infrastructural hurdles are neither expedient in our eyes and unfortunately ultimately nor economically viable.
Nevertheless, the team of IGLOOTEL Lapland doesn't want to look back, instead we want to turn our faces towards the future - together with you! Therefore, we will continue to welcome you to many locations in Swedish Lapland on behalf of FlyCar GmbH. In cooperation, we offer a variety of exclusive special trips for Christmas, New Year's Eve and New Year's weeks. In addition, there are of course still our tried and well tested weekend trips (3 nights) including an optional extension (5 or 7 nights) from a total of 4 German airports directly to the heart of Swedish Lapland. As usual, these trips can be combined with unforgettable activities: From romantic husky tours to adventurous icebreaker trips through the frozen Baltic Sea, including an ice bath in a special wetsuit and fast-paced snowmobile safaris. Young and old also get their money's worth when feeding a reindeer or visiting a moose farm - you will experience all of this and much more in the last wilderness of Europe!
True to the motto "The show must go on!" we are optimistic about the future and are already looking forward to welcoming you back to the winter wonderland soon.
Stay healthy and confident!
Your FlyCar and IGLOOTEL team
IGLOOTEL impressions from the last years...
Dear guests, friends and supporters of IGLOOTEL Lapland,
in the 7th winter already we are building IGLOOTEL Lapland in cooperation with FlyCar GmbH. With great attention to details and a lot of heart and soul poured into every step of the process, we aim to create an one of a kind snow hotel in the middle of Swedish Lapland.
During the last years we have experienced eventful winters and have come across unexpected challenges – and with a strong team we were able to conquer all of them. But there are those circumstances caused by weather conditions, that we cannot turn into something positive, even with the strongest team.
This winters weather situation, which brought continuing warm weather to all of Northern Sweden, has delayed the building process of IGLOOTEL immensely. Unfortunately that leads us to the point at which we are forced to cancel the opening of IGLOOTEL 2020 for overnight guests for the entire winter season 2020. We would like to emphasize that we have tried everything within our power to pursue the construction of IGLOOTEL for an opening in due time. But unfortunately warm weather and missing snow have caused severe and unbreachable problems.
On the basis of those facts we need to announce, that IGLOOTEL will not exists in it’s well-known way in winter 2020. This means, that all already booked and confirmed IGLOOTEL overnights cannot be held up*. Nevertheless our goal still remains to offer the IGLOOTEL experience as well as all surrounding outdoor adventures in Swedish Lapland as extensive as possible. Unfortunately at the moment we cannot know from which point of time this will be possible for the product IGLOOTEL as we are still waiting for colder weather. Furthermore we cannot estimate which kind of IGLOOTEL products we will be able to offer.
We are hoping for your understanding. We will keep you posted and will inform you about any news on our website.
