There aren't many hotels that have to be rebuilt once a year, but Sweden's Ice hotel is a notable exception. This super cool hotel (excuse the pun) is located in the town of Jukkasjärvi, and is constructed in November and December, open for guests by mid-December time, and then melts back into the Torne River by mid-April. The hotel covers roughly 5,500 square meters and gets around 55,000 visitors each year. This winter is the hotel's 25th anniversary, and those who build the structure went all out on the room design. Let's take a look!
Everything at Icehotel, apart from the bedding, is made out of ice. So, that means the rooms, furniture and any decorations.
It must be cold sleeping here, but well worth the experience, as long as you wrap up warm!
What's more, the Northern Lights can be seen from this part of Sweden, weather conditions permitting, so this is a big draw for many guests.
These rooms are just stunning. Imagine all the effort that goes into creating this ice palace every year.
