Situated in the small village of JukkasjÃ¤rvi more than 120 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden, along the River Torne and beneath the Northern Lights, ICEHOTEL is the world's first and most famous ice hotel. It is rebuilt from scratch every winter, constructed entirely from blocks of ice collected from the nearby river.The sprawling igloo-like structure usually features 60 guest rooms (ranging from $170-$800 per night, depending on the room) in addition to a sauna, ice bar, chapel, reception hall, and theater. Beds, chairs, tables and all other furniture are carved out of ice and draped with reindeer skin for a bit of warmth. Ice sculptures populate the rooms and hallways, and at the bar ice-cold vodka is served in martini glasses made of ice.Upon arrival guests are provided with a variety of gear including jumpsuits and insulated sleeping bags. Heated bathrooms are located just outside the hotel, and for those too afraid to sleep on a big slab of ice, there are a number of heated cabins on the grounds as well.Those who choose to brave the cold accomodations are woken each morning with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at their bedside, a breakfast buffet, and morning sauna.Book in advance-- ICEHOTEL opens its doors for a brief window from December to March, and it's popularity only grows with each new winter!Check out our slideshow of interior and exterior shots from previous incarnations of ICEHOTEL.
