Ice Hotel, Sweden, SC0012Ph
The Ice Hotel, (Jukkasjärvi) is made from snow and ice blocks taken from the River Torne. Each year it melts away and is rebuilt again when winter returns.
Artists are invited each year to submit their designs for the main hall, reception church, bar and the 100 guests rooms. Even the glasses you drink from in the bar are made of ice.
Come Spring the hotel melts away returning to the Torne river, to be rebuilt again for its opening in December.
