Beautiful Ice Hotel in Sweden
Jukkasjarvi is a locality in Lapland in northern part of the country. Meanwhile, the village has become a popular tourist accommodation during the winter months, best known for the Icehotel.
Noteworthy, due to the specific material, the masters, artists and designers have to rebuilt the ice hotel each new year. And the source of ice is the nearest Torne River. In particular, the museum is open mid-December to mid-April. Accordingly, after the hotel closes in April, the ice melts back into the river.
The hotel also includes an Absolut Ice Bar and an Ice Church. The Absolut Ice Bar serves drinks in glasses made from Torne River ice. The Ice Church offers couples the opportunity to take their vows in a memorable setting.
How to spend the night in an ice hotel in Sweden?
Since literally everything in the hotel is made of ice, including walls, furniture and even dishes, and the air temperature remains no higher than -5, spending the night in such a place is, to put it mildly, cool. So that guests do not freeze on ice beds, they are offered sleeping bags and reindeer skins. Ideal – if you also wear thermal underwear. You can warm up after a cold night in the sauna in the morning.
