The Ice Hotel is melting soon

March 15, 2011

I am extremely thankful that spring is about to be upon us. I hate the winter and I hate the cold. But as all the snow begins to melt from my front yard, I couldn’t help but think about the one travel experience I would go on that would lead me into perhaps one of the coldest nights of my life. A stay at the Ice Hotel.

 

The Ice Hotel is located in Jukkasjärv, Sweden, and you guessed it, is entirely made out of ice- 10,000 tons of ice and nearly 30,000 tons of snow. Now this isn’t just an igloo that you bunker down in for the night. The Ice Hotel comes complete with a bar (where even the glasses are made out of ice), a chapel, a main hall, a reception area and of course suites for nearly 100 guests.

If you want to spend the night in this amazing hotel you better plan your trip between December and April, because after the winter season this hotel is out of business as it slowly melts away. But no worries, a new Ice Hotel will be built next year, with a completely new layout and design!
