Experience the coolest hotel in the world

  • The latest version of Sweden's IceHotel has reopened for winter - and it is just as stunning as ever.
    Each year since 1989, the IceHotel has been built and rebuilt in the village of Jukkasjarvi, 200km north of the Arctic Circle and next to the shores of the Torne River. The latest is the 28th version. This year artists used 30,000 cubic metres of snice (snow and ice) to construct the property as well as 500 tonnes of crystal clear natural ice to create glasses and an ice bar.

  • It also features 35 uniquely designed deluxe suites, an ice ceremony hall and a brand new frozen playground for children. In the main hall, 1,000 hand polished ice crystals have been used to create impressive chandeliers. While the ice ceremony hall has a flower power theme with 200 hand-sculpted 'snice' plants adorning the walls. A total of 36 artists from 17 different countries around the world were chosen to help design and build this year’s hotel, which opened on December 15.

    Previously, the entire hotel and it’s sculptural rooms would sadly melt away each spring. However, 2017 is the first year that the rooms will stay intact year-round—thanks to the hotel’s newly implemented sustainability plans, allowing the hotel to stay cool using solar panels. The permanent structure—aptly named ICEHOTEL 365—houses this year’s highly anticipated sculpted art suites. They’re so good, we’re already looking forward to next year’s designs!
