One of the world’s most distinct stays, Sweden‘s Icehotel has actually opened for its 33 rd season with all brand-new suites.
The very first hotel from ice:
Known for being the very first hotel ever to be built from snow and ice, the hotel lies in the town of Jukkasjärvi, 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. It is entirely restored every winter season when temperature levels in Sweden reach their coldest.
This year, the hotel brings visitors new suites created by 24 artists from around the world. According to the Daily Mail, the artists invested weeks thoroughly whittling the special suites out of 500 lots of ice and 10 Olympic pool’ worth of “snice” (a mix of snow and ice.)
The brand-new additions:
Among the brand-new suites is the Garden suite by Natsuki Saito and Shingo Saito, which is decorated with a huge flower concept, and Luc Voisin and Mathieu Brison’s Bauh-ice suite, motivated by the Bauhaus style motion. Remaining in this suite enables visitors to “take a trip back in time and experience geometric shapes, rounded furnishings, lines and stripes.”
Sonia Chow and Huschang Pourian’s ingenious High Score suite is an area and computer game– themed space, including a “playroom for taking in the fond memories of an easier period.”
The Maighdeann-roin suite was developed by Emilie Steele and Sara Steele, who drew motivation from the Celtic legend of a half-woman, half-seal called the Selkie. “Secrets and messages are concealed all over in a mix of snow sculptures, flashing ice, music, and a bittersweet story that plays out the minute you step inside the space,” the Steeles stated.
The MushRoom suite
True to its name, the trippy MushRoom suite by Chris Pancoe and Peter Hargraves includes substantial ice-hewn mushrooms in the middle of a fantastical forest.
An icy stay –
Temperatures at the hotel are kept at minus 5 degrees to preserve the stability of the spaces. Visitors are provided an expedition-style sleeping bag and have 24- hour access to the heated service structure for when they require a break from the cold.
In addition, visitors can delight in a range of activities that are used by the hotel, consisting of ice fishing, horseback trips, pet dog sledding, snowmobile flights, and trips to see the spectacular Northern Lights
