A new hotel is built each year in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi – 200 km north of the Arctic Circle – using ice from the nearby river Torne.
Each room is individually themed and hand-carved by a guest artist from around the world. This year’s stunning rooms feature astronauts, King Kong and giant snails.
Each room is unique and cooled to -5 to -8 degrees Celsius. You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag, on top of a hand-carved block of ice covered in reindeer hides. In the morning, you're woken with a cup of hot lingonberry juice.
There is also a large ice bar that serves champagne, and an ice gallery.
