Why It's a Deal While normal prices at the Ice Hotel ($232) may make you shudder, on this affordable three-night package from Maxxim Vacations, travelers will spend one night on-site, nestled warmly in a complimentary Nordic sleeping bag. Airfare alone is $579. You'll also have a room at the Four Points by Sheraton all three nights.
