Camp Ripan's tasty sustainability
At Camp Ripan we always think and work with sustainability. In our day to day operations that is a priority. New for this year, since April 2019, is that we are running one of the most environmentally friendly kitchens in Sweden. A kitchen that opens up a whole new opportunity for us to focus more on our food philosophy, while at the same time making sure we do our best to preserve the beautiful environment we have in the Arctic region. With new technology in ventilation and heat reduction as well as cooling the kitchen reduces energy and at the same time helps to heat the camp itself. Organic leftovers and spill will be composted to make new fertilizing for our future greenhouse.

Our guests can rest assured that they will receive not only a great insight into our local food, flavors and textures but also feel like they are making a sustainable choice while staying at Camp Ripan. This will also open up new possibilities to work with exciting events, cooking classes and storytelling.

ICEHOTEL – Celebrating 30 years
World famous ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi, actually also the original Icehotel, has been an iconic place for visitors around the world 29 years in a row now. Icehotel’s aim is to become CO2 negative, a goal that was formulated in 2008. We have already taken some steps towards this, and have more plans in the pipeline. The seasonal ICEHOTEL melts down every spring under the midnight sun, while the midnight sun plays a big part in ICEHOTEL 365, not just as an attraction, but more as a necessity to make the facility available year round in a sustainable way. Solar panels provide ICEHOTEL 365 with enough energy to keep the rooms frozen even during the height of summer. ICEHOTEL continues to be a world attraction during winter, under the dancing northern lights. Every year, the seasonal edition of the hotel, with an additional 37 rooms, will be constructed – offering stunning ephemeral art and design during the winter season.

KUST Hotell & Spa – the city lung
Award-winning KUST Hotell & Spa is much more than northern Sweden’s new design hotel. In its own way, it’s a journey along the river Piteälven, one of Swedens four National Rivers, with the river mouth just outside the hotel. It’s a journey in 14 chapters – or all the 14 stories of the building. The exterior of KUST Hotell & Spa, resembling the old time's timber transports down the river, is made of concrete mixed with titanium oxide, a technological invention that works so that the building absorbs Co2 and thus resembles a 14 story high air filter in the city. Some research suggests that the exterior of KUST cleans out air pollution just like trees. In this case thousands of trees.  At KUST you discover the highest sky bar and spa terrace along the coast of Swedish Lapland, 97 rooms, four unique suites that celebrate the seasons, a full-service conference floor, a renowned restaurant and a lounge with an international atmosphere. And already from the start, KUST has been acknowledged by the White Guide, where Swedens best places to eat is listed.
