Ice-Hotel-Sweden
ICEHOTEL is exactaly what you might think.. a hotel built of ice and snow. The first and the largest in the world in fact. I want to go!  Sweden’s Ice Hotel is built from scratch every year. A new design, new suites, a brand new reception – in fact everything in it is crisp and new.The Ice Hotel is situated on the shores of the Torne River, in the old village of Jukkasjärvi in Swedish Lapland.10 000 tons of crystal clear ice from the ‘ice manufacturing plant’, the Torne River, and 30 000 tons of pure snow generously supplied by Mother Nature are needed to build the Ice Hotel every year. The hotel sleeps over 100 guests, and every bedroom is unique.Covering more than 30,000 square feet, the Ice Hotel includes an Ice Chapel, the hotel itself, an ice art exhibition hall, a cinema and last but not least, the world famous ‘Absolut Ice Bar’.

Each year, they attract visitors from all over the world to a little village in Lapland, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Many of them trek  further north, exploring the high mountains and all the way to the northern Norway to visit the fjords.  With the only upholstery being reindeer  hides… I’m not sure it would be a lengthy say, but I’d go… who’s in?
