When you travel to Lapland you can't escape the magic of the Ice Hotel. Set deep inside the Arctic Circle, in the small village of Jukkasjärvi, on the banks of the powerful Torne River, Ice hotel is an artistic dream born from the colorful imagination of the talented artists who are carefully selected by Ice Hotel to create their ICE masterpieces.
The entire Ice Hotel is carefully carved and constructed from the natural materials provided by mother nature during the winter months. Crystal clear ICE is harvested from the metre thick layer of ICE on the surface of the Torne River and is the basic building material for stunning architectural ICE structures decorating the ICE church, reception, main hall and your beautiful room of ICE.
As summer approaches the entire ICE HOTEL slowly melts into the Torne River. Fortunately, the imagination never dies and Ice Hotel is reborn the following year as yet another impressive hotel of ICE takes shape.
