They say it is the best experience of Sweden. Probably they are not too much wrong. ICEHOTEL is one of the greatest attractions of Sweden. A hotel, completely made of ice — it is a thing of wonder as well. Located in Jukkasjí¤rvi village, about 17 km away from Kiruna in Sweden, ICEHOTEL in Sweden is the first ice hotel in the world.
The uniqueness of this hotel is that the entire hotel is made up of snow and ice blocks were taken from the Tome River. It is really amazing how each and every part of this hotel including even the glasses in the bar are made of ice. The most amazing part of it is that this hotel has to build every year from scratch. The hotel returns back with a new design, new style, new suites, and a new reception. ICEHOTEL remains open for the visitors from December to April.
Inside the ICEHOTEL
Once the construction work of the hotel gets completed, the ICEHOTEL features wonderful rooms & suites, reception area, main hall, a bar, and church that cater to the needs of over 100 guests. It is an amazing experience to sit and sleep on the blocks of sculpted ice in the form of chairs and beds. There is also an option of warm accommodation next to the hotel. As spring comes by, everything in the hotel starts melting down and goes into oblivion. Again a new hotel with the new design comes up next year with new enthusiasm and essence.
