Icehotel in Sweden

Dec 7, 2016

Category: Living

Essentially a luxury hotel version of mandala sand art, every year this Icehotel located in northern Sweden gets built out of tons and tons of block ice, only to be melted again as the season ends.

The cyclical nature of the hotel, which has been operating since 1989, offers a unique opportunity for artist and engineers to come together and create something new every year. ‘Cold Rooms’, suites made completely of ice are the best example of these collective efforts. This year over twenty rooms have been put together by just as many architects and artists. Visitors will all have the opportunity to book rooms like the gigantic elephant suite designed by Annosofia Mååg, a flying buttress suite built by sculptor AnnaKatrin Kraus and designed by architect Hans Aescht, or the Labyrinth Saga suite put together by architects Kristin Borg and Clara Lindencrona among many others. Want to go grab a drink? You can head right over the the icebar and have a few cocktails straight out of glasses made completely of frozen water. We bet your backyard snow fort doesn’t have anything like that on hand. [Purchase]
