|Imagine a hotel built from thousands of tons of snow and ice, and re-built every winter- that is Icehotel in the little village of Jukkasjarvi in northern Lapland, Sweden.
In Icehotel there are double rooms and suites for overnight guests, a lobby, a pillar hall, film auditorium and of course the famous Absolut Icebar - where folk from all over the world socialize till late.
In November, building starts on the unique Icehotel and the official opening is in mid December.
By the time the spring sunshine has done its work and the Icehotel has slowly but surely made way for summer and has run back into the River Torne, May has arrived. At the end of April or the beginning of May, we close Icehotel for the season - all depending on the weather gods however.
