Imagine a hotel built from snow and ice by artists.  The rooms are beautiful and  icy and cold.  You sleep in a warm thermal sleeping bag on a bed made of a block of ice topped by a thick mattress and  reindeer skins.   You could be in a simple snow room, or in a room filled with ice sculptures. You are at the Ice Hotel in Sweden.

Located 200km above the artic circle ICEHOTEL is literally at the top of the world.    It seems distant and remote, however it is easy to get to with the nearest airport and train station only 15km away in the town of Kiruna.  From year to year the ICEHOTEL is never the same.  Every year artists from around the globe come to build and sculpt the beautiful hotel, only to see it melt away come spring.
