Ice Hotel in Lapland

The truth is that with the cold that is already these days what most of us want is to be warm at home with the heating or the stove on full blast. However, the most adventurous take advantage of these weeks of winter to embark on the odd experience.

One of these experiences could be visiting the Ice Hotel that has been built every year for 24 years in the town of Jukkasjärvi, in Swedish Lapland. Would you like to know more details about this amazing hotel establishment?

Ice Hotel Features

This season, the Jukkasjärvi Ice Hotel, with 5,500 square meters and 65 rooms, has eight new suites and spaces carved by artists from 1,600 tons of ice, works that have been chosen from a total of 200 designs.

The Lapp Ice Hotel has been made with ice water from the Torne river, one of the few that has not been used for industrial. The construction period runs from October to the beginning of December of each year. About 1,000 tons of frozen water and about 30,000 m3 of snice (snow and ice; ice particles from the Torne river that mix with the air).

Works of art

As its creators affirm, the Ice Hotel is more than just rooms and beds; “It is an art project made of snow and ice that is totally only" Each artist works freelance, although during the last week before opening, about 40 artists work together. During the rest of the year, hundreds of proposals are received from around the world, of which some are selected by a jury. The winners flock to Jukkasjärvi to work in November and December.

The surprising thing is that every winter about 50,000 people visit this hotel and more than 100 ceremonies.
