The ICEHOTEL

The ICEHOTEL is an amazing work of art that uses natures resources to build a place of wonder where everything is made of ice or snow, including the glassware.

Between March and April, 5,000 tons of ice is harvested from the Torne River in Northern Sweden. The ICEHOTEL is an impressive work of art, made from the environment and cut from 1,000 tonnes of ice and 30,000 tons of “snice”, a mixture of snow and ice that strengthens the structure. Each one is unique and every year over 50 Artists are personally invited to come design specific areas the Hotel. The building and sculpting begins around November and you can visit between December and Mid-April, after that it begins to slowly melt back into the lake. Now that's recycling!
