Icehotel – Sweden

Wonderfully-enough, this Icehotel is exactly what it sounds like, in that it’s a hotel made of ice. Yep. How cool is that? … get it? cool?… sorry, I couldn’t resist. Like I can never resist calling towing services when I have car issues. Anyway, the hotel can be found in Sweden in a place called Jukkasjärvi, which is located 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Chilly! The idea for the Icehotel actually began as a kind of art festival in 1989. One Yngve Bergqvist, who would later found Icehotel, decided that Jukkasjärvi – a popular tourist destination in the summertime – need not be abandoned in the winter.
