ICE HOTEL


This pictures are the ICEHOTEL in village Jukkasjärvi, 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden. This hotel building is made of ice and snow and includes a church and an ice bar. But if you get cold don't expect to find a fireplace or a heater.
"You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a special bed of snow and ice, on reindeer skins," we read. "You are awakened in the morning with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside."
This year, the hotel was built with collaborative input from students of Stockholm's Royal Institute of Technology. Here is a price list, in Swedish krona, should you want to book a few nights.
