The uniqueness of this hotel is that, the entire hotel is made up of snow and ice blocks taken from the Tome River. It is really amazing how each and every parts 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 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 new design comes up next year with new enthusiasm and essence.
While in ICEHOTEL, you can choose from three types of accommodation, viz. Cold accommodation, Warm accommodation and Wilderness camp. In Cold accommodation, you stay inside the hotel room in a temperature that ranges between -5 Â°C to -8 Â°C, no matter what may be the temperature outside. Dressed in warm thermal underwear and a hat on your head, it is an out-of-the-world experience to slip into the cozy sleeping bag inside your hotel room.

You also have the warm accommodation option in the forms of Kaamos Hotel Room, Nordic Hotel Chalet and Northern Light Hotel Chalet. Wilderness camps are the open-air accommodation facility in tents.
