IF YOU’RE headed to the absolutely gorgeous Icehotel in Sweden (which is, as you might have guessed, a hotel made out of ice), then you obviously have a thing for chilly temperatures.
According to its bio, Icehotel “is the world’s first and largest hotel built of snow and ice,” and it’s also a protected work of art by the Swedish government.
Icehotel can only open when the weather is right, though the design work and harvesting of the 1,000 ton of ice and 30,000 cubic meters of snice (snow + ice) make the hotel a nearly year-round project.
It takes about 100 people to complete the magical transformation of snice into about 65 rooms, which past visitors say simply “must be seen to be appreciated” fully.
This year, Icehotel will feature the work of 42 artists from 11 different countries, sure to make the roughly 55,000 annual visitors very, very happy.
You can dine at one of the hotel’s restaurants or drink at the world-famous Icebar. Or better yet — you can even get married in the hotel. Imagine one of these magical rooms as your honeymoon suit!
