Ice Hotel

It´s a bit embarrassing that I live only hours away, yet have never been to see the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. I have been to an ice bar, though, and had a glass of whisky in an ice glass, some twenty years ago when they built one in the southern harbour here in Luleå. After seeing these photos of this year´s version of the hotel, I think I should try to get there... More info on the hotel here.


  1. I've seen photos of this, and they always fascinate me.

    1. Oddly, I read more about it in foreign media than domestic. Perhaps we Swedes aren´t all that fascinated with ice and snow, having so much of it. They do a lot of weddings up there, I think they make a snow chapel every year. Then, of course, there is the Tree Hotel:

    2. The tree hotel is a fun idea! Some national or state park here should do this. So many of them have cabins in the woods, but not a single one has cabins up in the trees.

    3. Kate Moss came to stay there - big headlines in the local news! :-D
