Have you ever wanted to stay in an ice hotel? I mean, one entirely made of ice. I’d give it a try maybe once, but I don’t think I’d want to make it a yearly thing. In the Swedish village of Jukkasjarvi there’s a chilly hotel called the ICEHOTEL. Every year since 1989 this hotel has been rebuilt and rebuilt over and over again until this year. Now, thanks to some unique solar-powered cooling technology, it stays up year round. Its new name is ICEHOTEL 365.
This new hotel has both warm and cold sections. In the warm sections are a dining room, cocktail bar, communal changing rooms, toilets, and saunas. Also, not found in the cold room are hair dryers, irons, and TVs. That’s obvious because you wouldn’t want your ice room to melt. At the ICEHOTEL 365, there are art suites decorated with ice sculptures by artists from around the world. The deluxe suites are the largest available and they come with many great amenities. Like a private sauna, shower and en suite bathroom.
And of course, for those who can’t take the cold, there are the warm rooms. They’re the total opposite of the cold suites. Unlike most hotels, they put a strong emphasis on “warm” in ICEHOTEL 365’s warm rooms. They are the epitome of cozy, with blankets and sheets made of naturally warm materials.
