Ice Hotels

Ice hotels are temporary buildings made entirely out of snow and sculpted ice. They are built each year in the coldest regions of the world as a way to attract vacationers, who pay for the privilege of spending a night surrounded by ice in near-freezing temperatures, dining on ice tables, drinking from ice glasses, sitting on ice chairs, and sleeping on ice beds. The world's first ice hotel was built in Sweden in 1990, but it was not originally intended for that purpose. What was it meant for? More...

The ice hotel, ice chairs, ice tables, beds, champaigne glasses, spoons? Missing is a snow or ice blanket only.

Sleeping in minus-zero temperatures, wearing layers of heavy and warm clothes to wander around may not seem like the ideal get away that you want to pay for, but this is a unique experience that really shouldn't be missed.

A chillingly surreal ambiance that I wish Salvador Dali could have experienced. Imagine his artistic interpretation of such fantastic accommodations.

I spend too much of my time surrounded by ice and snow to even think of doing such a thing!

An ice hotel is a temporary hotel made up of snow, sculpted blocks of ice, and, in some cases, some steel framing. They are promoted by their sponsors and have special features for the travelers who are interested in novelties and unusual environments, and thus are in the class of destination hotels. Their lobbies are often filled with ice sculptures, and food and drinks are specially chosen for the circumstances. Taste for cold - go for it!!!
